I have a datagrid populated with information. I want to create a button that will select all rows that contain a text cell with the phrase "Bulk." How do I accomplish this?

Hi Alex,

Thanks for contacting Syncfusion support.

You can achieve your requirement by GetPropertyAccessProvider.By using this you can get the value of the record data and the mapping name of the datagrid. When the record data is equal to the given phrase value, the row will be selected.
Please refer the below code snippet

private void datagrid_ItemsSourceChanged(object sender, GridItemsSourceChangedEventArgs e)


            if (datagrid.View != null)

                reflector = datagrid.View.GetPropertyAccessProvider();


                reflector = null;


private void Button_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)


            var totalRowIndex = datagrid.View.Records.Count;

            var totalColumnIndex = datagrid.Columns.Count; 

            for (int recordIndex = 0; recordIndex < totalRowIndex; recordIndex++)


                for (int columnindex = 0; colindex < totalColumnIndex; columnindex++)


                    var record = this.datagrid.View.Records[recordIndex];

                    var mappingName = datagrid.Columns[columnindex].MappingName;

                    var currentCellValue = reflector.GetValue(record.Data, mappingName);

                    if (currentCellValue.ToString()== "Bulk")


                        object item = datagrid.View.Records[recordIndex];
