Default DataGridView default selection.

I have a datagrid view whose datasource is a datatable.
When the DGV is first loaded, it selects the first cell of first row by defaut.
This does not change even if I call the ClearSelection method after setting the datasource.
Is this the default behaviour of DataGridView.
If yes then how to handle it.

Thumbs up Solved.

I just solved the problem by setting the current cell to null.

foreach (DataGridViewCell cell in dataGridView1.SelectedCells)
                cell.Selected = false;

            dataGridView1.CurrentCell = null;
I have other issue now.
I have some code in the CellBeginEdit, which I don't want to fire if a column header is clicked.
Any specific condition that can be checked for?
