Current Row

Previously when using Visual Studio native control the DataGridView, to get the value of a cell in the current line used the following code:

DatagridView1.CurrentRow.Cells [2] .Value.ToString ()

What code do I use for the sfDataGrid1 control?

Best Regards

Hi Tiago,    
Thank you for using Syncfusion controls.     
SfDataGrid is data bounded. So, SfDataGrid doesn’t have the support to get the cell value as like as DataGridView by using Row and Column index. You can achieve your requirement to get the cell value in SfDataGrid as like as DataGridView by using the DataGridHelper class GetCellValue method.   
Please refer the below code snippet.  
private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)   
    if (this.sfDataGrid.SelectionController.DataGrid.CurrentCell.ColumnIndex != -1 &&this.sfDataGrid.SelectionController.DataGrid.CurrentCell.RowIndex != -1)   
        var rowIndex = this.sfDataGrid.SelectionController.DataGrid.CurrentCell.RowIndex;   
        var recordIndex = sfDataGrid.TableControl.ResolveToRecordIndex(rowIndex);   
        var cellValue = DataGridHelper.GetCellValue(this.sfDataGrid, recordIndex, 2);   
        MessageBox.Show("Value in cell  " + cellValue.ToString());   
public static class DataGridHelper   
    public static object GetCellValue(SfDataGrid sfDataGrid, int recordIndex, intcolumnindex)   
        object cellValue = null;   
        var record1 = sfDataGrid.View.Records.GetItemAt(recordIndex);   
        var mappingName = sfDataGrid.Columns[columnindex].MappingName;   
        cellValue = record1.GetType().GetProperty(mappingName).GetValue(record1, null);   
        if (cellValue != null)   
            return cellValue;   
        return null;   
Please refer the below sample link.
