How do I select a row in the DataGrid and get the value of a row?

I am using the SfDataGrid (UWP) with data from SQLite, I need to select a row and get the value of a column so I can pass the data to another XMAL page and display the details.

I believe I found something that will work:

 this.dgCustomers.SelectionChanging += dgCustomers_SelectionChanging;

void dgCustomers_SelectionChanging(object sender, GridSelectionChangingEventArgs e)
            var record = dgCustomers.GetRecordAtRowIndex(dgCustomers.SelectionController.CurrentCellManager.CurrentRowColumnIndex.RowIndex);
            if (record == null)
            var colIndex = dgCustomers.ResolveToGridVisibleColumnIndex(dgCustomers.SelectionController.CurrentCellManager.CurrentRowColumnIndex.ColumnIndex);
            if (colIndex >= 0)
                var column = dgCustomers.Columns[colIndex];
                var cellValue = dgCustomers.View.GetPropertyAccessProvider().GetValue(record, column.MappingName);


This gives me the value of the selected cell.

Hi Garling,

Yes, you can use SelectionChanging as you mentioned or SelectionChanged event with SfDataGrid.SelectedItem.

private void Button_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
    // Get the selected items of SfDataGrid
    var reflector = this.dataGrid.View.GetPropertyAccessProvider();
   var row = this.dataGrid.SelectedItem;
        foreach (var column in dataGrid.Columns)
            //Get the value from data object based on MappingName
            var cellvalue = reflector.GetValue(row, column.MappingName);
            //Returns the display value of the cell from data object based on MappingName
            //var displayValue = reflector.GetFormattedValue(row, column.MappingName);

Refer below KB for sample and details:

I have this working but now I need to get the values of multiple columns in the row for example:

var col1 should be column[0]  
var col2 should be column[3]

How can I do this?

Hi Garling,

We have analyzed your query. You can refer below code example for get particular column value from selected row in SfDataGrid.

Code snippet:

private void Button_Click_1(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)


            if (this.dataGrid.SelectedItem != null)



                var reflector = this.dataGrid.View.GetPropertyAccessProvider();

                var row = this.dataGrid.SelectedItem;

                //Get the value from data object based on Column index              

                var cellvalue = dataGrid.Columns[1].MappingName; // Use any column index

                var cell_value = reflector.GetValue(row, cellvalue);// Reflect the cell Value              



We have also prepared the sample based on this and please find the sample under the following location,
