    That's so sweet of you inviting me.

    "That's so sweet of you inviting me."



    I heard this line in a movie and wonder if it is grammatical, because we

    normally say " It's very sweet of you to invite me" .

    Re: That's so sweet of you inviting me.

    It's the sort of construction you'll hear in colloquial conversation.

    Use your version if you want to be sure of getting it right.

    Re: That's so sweet of you inviting me.

    As Rover said, you'll hear it in conversation. If you think about it the other way round, it sounds fine:

    Inviting me was so sweet [of you].
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
