    When I select a row in a RadGridView (as shown below)

        private void gridviewServiceTraceWatchList_SelectionChanged(object sender, SelectionChangeEventArgs e)

                txtBillTo.Text = e.AddedItems[0].ToString();


    I get: “ServiceTrace.WPFApplication.CIPService.ServiceTraceWatchListData”

    I’ve tried everything I know and looked and nothing works. Can anyone tell me what I’m missing? It has to be simple and I'm overthinking it. I just want to get a single field item from a row of data.


    Thanks in advance.

    The AddedItems collection of the SelectionChangeEventArgs returns a collection of objects (single object if SelectionMode is Single) of the type of the bound collection. In this case, I assume your ItemsSource consists of objects of type ServiceTraceWatchListData and thus calling the ToString() method, produces the described result.

    If you have set RadGridView's SelectionUnit to Cell, you can get the value of the field for the last selected cell by handling the SelectedCellsChanged event like so:

    private void radGridView_SelectedCellsChanged(object sender, GridViewSelectedCellsChangedEventArgs e)
        var cell = e.AddedCells[0];
        var field = cell.Item.GetType().GetProperty(cell.Column.UniqueName).GetValue(cell.Item, null);

    Please let me know whether such an approach would work for you.
