Hi Peggun, when a new record is selected a CurrentRecordContextChange event is raised. You can check this event to know which record is active. But since you are mentionioning "parent row"... If you are inside a nested table and a record is selected inside the nested table you can get a reference to the parent record with Record parentRecordOfNestedElement = element.ParentChildTable.ParentNestedTable.ParentRecord; Stefan

Does the parent row have any event for itself ? can I handle events by just selecting the parent row, instead of selecting the child row ?

basically i have a gridgroup control with one of the column set as group. how do i capture the data of the parent row in the gridgroup without expanding the group? reason for obtaining this data is to enable me to delete the whole group by accessing this parent row.

Is the DataSource a flat DataTable, or is it DataTable that has a Relation defined making it an hierarchical datasource? Here is code that is hit when you click on a CaptionRow in a grouped gridGroupingControl with a flat datasource.
private void gridGroupingControl2_CurrentRecordContextChange(object sender, Syncfusion.Grouping.CurrentRecordContextChangeEventArgs e)
	if(e.Action == CurrentRecordAction.EnterRecordComplete
		&& e.Record != null
		&& e.Record is GridCaptionRow)
		GridCaptionRow rec = e.Record as GridCaptionRow;
