You have just stumbled against a common Gambas problem! :-)

DataBrowser is a compound control, and so is actually a container, so the 
basic events (mouse and keyboard) have no sense for what you want.

Hopefully, DataBrowser has a View property that returns the TableView inside 
it. Then you can use the Observer class to catch the events raised by the 

I admit this is far from perfect. I guess you need MouseDown and DblClick 
events to let the user popup a menu or activate a row, do you?
