Hi lorenza,

Thanks for using Syncfusion Products.

The requested requirement can be achieved by using the client side event RowSelected. Please find a sample and code example as below:
Sample: MvcApplication17

<input type="text" id="txtbox"/>




         .AllowPaging()    /*Paging Enabled*/

        .Columns(col =>


            col.Field("OrderID").HeaderText("Order ID").IsPrimaryKey(true).TextAlign(TextAlign.Right).Width(75).Add();

            col.Field("CustomerID").HeaderText("Customer ID").Width(80).Add();

            col.Field("EmployeeID").HeaderText("Employee ID").TextAlign(TextAlign.Right).Width(75).Add();


            col.Field("OrderDate").HeaderText("Order Date").TextAlign(TextAlign.Right).Width(80).Format("{0:MM/dd/yyyy}").Add();

            col.Field("ShipCity").HeaderText("Ship City").Width(110).Add();


        .ClientSideEvents(eve=> eve.RowSelected("rowselected"))


The RowSelected event will be triggered after a row has been selected and we can get the selected records values by using the method getSelectedRecords.


    function rowselected(args) {

        var index= this.selectedRowsIndexes; //you can get the selected row index values

        var selectedval = this.getSelectedRecords()[0].OrderID;   //get the selected records values




We have displayed the selected records OrderID value to the input text box. Please refer the documentation for more details about rowSelected event and getSelectedRecords method in the following links
