)
Public Function CalcHitInfo(
    pt As Point
) As CardHitInfo

Parameters

Name Type Description

A Point structure specifying the test point coordinates relative to the grid control's top-left corner.

Returns

Type Description
CardHitInfo

A CardHitInfo object that contains information about View elements located at the test point.

Remarks

Use the CalcHitInfo method to determine which element is located at a specified point. For instance, this can be used when handling the View's Click event to determine which element was clicked. In such instances, you will pass the current mouse pointer's coordinates as the method's parameter.

Please refer to the CardHitInfo class description for details on what information is provided by the method's return value. The Hit Information topic provides general information on obtaining and using hit information.

NOTE

Detail pattern Views do not contain data and they are never displayed within XtraGrid. So, the CalcHitInfo member must not be invoked for these Views. The CalcHitInfo member can only be used with real Views that are displayed within the Grid Control. The real Views with which an end-user interacts at runtime can be accessed using the following methods.

Examples

The following code demonstrates how to determine over which element of the Card View the mouse pointer is located.

using System.Windows.Forms;

private void gridControl1_MouseMove(object sender, MouseEventArgs e) {
      DevExpress.XtraGrid.Views.Card.ViewInfo.CardHitInfo chi = 
        cardView1.CalcHitInfo(new System.Drawing.Point(e.X, e.Y));
      string elementName = chi.HitTest.ToString();
}
