Handle the SelectionChanged event to perform any actions each time a user selects cells, rows, columns, or drawing objects in the SpreadsheetControl’s UI.

The example below shows how to use the SelectionChanged event to calculate the average, count, numerical count and sum for non-empty selected cells.

spreadsheetControl1.SelectionChanged += (s, e) =>
    int count = 0;
    double sum = 0.0;
    int numericCount = 0;
    double average = 0.0;

    Worksheet worksheet = spreadsheetControl1.ActiveWorksheet;
    Range selectedCells = worksheet.Selection.Intersect(worksheet.GetDataRange());
    if (selectedCells != null)
        foreach (Cell cell in selectedCells.ExistingCells)
            if (cell.Value.IsNumeric)
                sum += cell.Value.NumericValue;
    if (numericCount > 0)
        average = sum / numericCount;
