clickability in a DataGrid

Hi Sieg,
I can't think of a way to detect a click in a specific cell of a datagrid.

If nobody else can come up with something, a couple of alternatives would
be to customize your Edit and Delete columns to contain buttons and put
your delete/edit commands in the mouseUp handler for each button, or
implement a right click popup menu with delete/edit options on it and put
the logic in the menuPick handler for the popup.

Would take too much space to describe how to do those things, but check out
the datagrid manual for details.
