Default Event handling in c#

I have a class MyDataGrid which is inherited from Datagrid
which have two protected override functions.
i want to register the events.
for example
public class MyDataGrid : DataGrid

        protected override void OnMouseMove(System.Windows.Forms.MouseEventArgs e)
protected override void OnMouseDown(System.Windows.Forms.MouseEventArgs e)
Now i want to register these events
i m registering as
this.dataGrid1.MouseDown+=new System.Windows.Forms.MouseEventHandler(this.OnMous eDown);
this.dataGrid1.MouseMove+=new System.Windows.Forms.MouseEventHandler(this.OnMous eMove);

error is
 Method 'System.Windows.Forms.Control.OnMouseDown(System.W indows.Forms.MouseEventArgs)' does not match delegate 'void System.Windows.Forms.MouseEventHandler(object, System.Windows.Forms.MouseEventArgs)'
 Method 'System.Windows.Forms.Control.OnMouseMove(System.W indows.Forms.MouseEventArgs)' does not match delegate 'void System.Windows.Forms.MouseEventHandler(object, System.Windows.Forms.MouseEventArgs)'
can anybody tell me waht's the solution?
i m coding in C# Windows application ,version 1.1(2003)

This problem would be better in a different forum catagory like C#.
I beleive the error is telling you exactly what the problem is at any rate.
Your methods do not match the delegate you are subscribing to.
Change you method signature to match the delegate.
That is your method must have two paramters, the object and the event args.
protected override void OnMouseMove(object sender, System.Windows.Forms.MouseEventArgs e) {//do something}
