Get the highlighted cells information


We currently building a sfdatagrid control and would like to get the highlighted/ selected cells information. 
Now only able to get the last highlighted/selected cell information with the code below:
var cellInfos = SFDataGrid.SelectionController.CurrentCellManager.CurrentCell;

Any way to get the all highlighted cells information for example row and column index to retrieve the real data of the all highlighted cells?

Please advise, thanks.

Hi Chong,


Thank you for contacting Syncfusion Support.


We have analyzed your query. You can achieve your requirement by using GetSelectedCells() method in SfDataGrid. By using this method you can get the whole selected cell information.


Please refer the below code snippet and sample in the following location:


Code Snippet:


  private void Button_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)


           int rowindex =0;

           var selectedcels = this.sfdatagrid.GetSelectedCells();

           int count = selectedcels.Count;

           for (int i = 0; i < count; i++)


               rowindex = this.sfdatagrid.ResolveToRowIndex(selectedcels[i].RowData);

               var colindex = this.sfdatagrid.Columns.IndexOf(selectedcels[i].Column);

               var visibilecolindex = this.sfdatagrid.ResolveToGridVisibleColumnIndex(colindex);

The solution is useful, but now have another problems.
By using the sample when I select two items of CustomerBranch and two items of SalesId,
then the other unselected items of CustomerBranch gone.
Any way to solve it?
Please advise, thanks

Hi Chong,


Sorry about the inconvenience caused.


We have analyzed your query. Normally the filter pop up shows both checked and unchecked data on last filtered column where the filter has been applied and the remaining column shows only the visible data as checked state in filter pop up. It’s a behavior of filter in SfDataGrid.
