I have a dataGridView table and I want to retrieve the cell from the fourth column of the selected row. For example if I have a table with the following headings:

First Name, Last Name, Address

I want to select the tenth row and retrieve whats in the cell under address. Is there an easy way to do this please.

Use the DataGridView's CurrentCell property?
An example from MSDN:
this.dataGridView1.CurrentCell = this.dataGridView1[1,0];

I investigated the CurrentCell property but I must have missed something. Could you give me an example please. I've never used dataGrids before so I'm learning everything from scratch.

If you're looking to get the value at that position, it appears you could just use dataGridView1[4, 10] if you want the value at the cell in the fourth column, tenth row. If you're looking to set that cell as the current cell instead, you'd do it as in my example above in the answer, substituting the row and column you want for the 1 and 0.

Don't forget to accept the answer if, when all is said and done, it gives you what you needed.
