Search Functionality similar to excel search


I am using syncfusion griddatacontrol for my application.Technology we used for our project is WPF with MVVM pattern.

We have requirement like search functionality which is similar to excel/Visual studio search.
(setting and focusing the cells based on my search data).

We are not able to get the  cell value based on search item within the griddatacontrol.

Can you please provide any samples/suggestions for this issue.

Note: We used only View Model for our logical implementations.

thanks in advance.

Hi Ramya,

Thank you for contacting Syncfusion support.

We have analyzed your query. We have prepared the sample based on your requirement ”Searching the CellValue in GridDataControl like Excel/Visual Studio” by using the MoveTo method in GridDataControl in MVVM pattern.

Please refer the sample in the following location:

For your reference we have a another control like GridDataControl which is named as SfDataGrid. But compare to GridDataControl, SfDataGrid having a better performance and flexibility. SfDataGrid assists you to create entirely customizable and highly interactive features used to display and manipulate the huge amount of data. So, we suggest you to use SfDataGrid instead of GridDataControl.

Please refer the following UG link for SfDataGrid.

UG Links:  http://help.syncfusion.com/ug/wpf/index.html#!Documents/choosebetweendifferentgrids.htm

In SfDataGrid you can find the CellValue and also you can able to highlight the searched CellValue in SfDataGrid. Please refer the sample for SfDataGrid in the following location:
