I am developing a sfdatagrid with a master, a child to the master, and a child to that, so three levels ... essentially, there is a company, a branch in that company, and events that branch has completed.

I can access the "company" by selecting the row and accessing it using vb.net as follows: 
Dim v = gridCompany.CurrentItem
Dim r As System.Data.DataRow = v.row

I can access the "branch" by selecting the row in the expanded detail view and access it as follows:
Dim v = gridCompany.SelectedDetailsViewGrid.CurrentItem
Dim r As System.Data.DataRow = v.Row

So if i want to access the "events" by selecting one of those rows (a child detail view to the "branch") how do i get that selected row?

Hi Christopher, 
Thanks for your patience. 
Please make use of the following code snippet to get the row selected in the details view grid. 
Code snippet :   
if (sfDataGrid1.SelectedDetailsViewGrid != null) 
    var dataGrid = sfDataGrid1.SelectedDetailsViewGrid; 
    while (dataGrid.NotifyListener != null) 
        if (dataGrid.SelectedDetailsViewGrid != null) 
            dataGrid = dataGrid.SelectedDetailsViewGrid; 
    var currentItem = dataGrid.CurrentItem; 
Let us know whether this helps also if you need any further assistance on this.

this gets the 1st nested grid (the child) but it doesn't get the child of the child, the second nested grid.

Hi Christopher, 
Thanks for your update. 
We have created a simple sample using the code snippet which we have provided in the last update and it is available in the following link for your reference. 
We are able to get the selected record from the second level nested grid in this sample. Please have a look at the given sample and if still the issue exists please let us know if we missed any customization you have done in your application. It will be helpful for us to provide an exact solution at earlier.
