key-focus event: get row/col number?

maybe I am only stumbling over my debugger:
the event returns cell.
It looks like cell has a property 0 which is an array which somewhere in a deeper level has rowno and columnno?

I don't get it really out of there. So if I have the event, how do I know which cell/row/col-No it comes from?

My workaround is to write col/rowNo into the node (which I get in the event) as extra attributes, which works, but there must be a better way.

    The key-focus event provides the cell parameter which is an API instance, meaning you can use the cell() chained API's like cell().index(). Look at the example in the docs for this statement:

    var rowData = datatable.row( cell.index().row ).data();

    It uses cell().index() to get the cell's index which contains the column and row. In particular you can use cell.index().row to get the row and cell.index().column to get the column.

    ah .. thanks. I tried cell().row().index() which didn't do what I needed. So I was close, but still wrong.
    Will try this
