Hello Kashif,

There is no such property in the WinForms. Could you share with us more information regarding your scenario? What are you trying to achieve with RadGridView for Winforms? This information will allow me to assist you further.

Hi Kashif,

Please accept our apologies for the delayed reply. We had an issue which prevented us from seeing your post in our system. Here is the answer to your question:

When using RadGridView, you can access cell values by using the Cells collection of GridViewRowInfo. Consider the code snippet below:
object value = this.radGridView1.Rows[2].Cells["ID"].Value;

However, if you want to access the underlying data item directly, you can do this by using the DataBoundItem property:
object dataBoundItem = this.radGridView1.Rows[2].DataBoundItem;

Finally, when your data source is a DataTable, you can get the primary key names by using the following code:
DataTable table = this.radGridView1.DataSource as DataTable;
string[] primaryKeyNames = new string[table.PrimaryKey.Length];
for (int i = 0; i < primaryKeyNames.Length; i++)
{
    primaryKeyNames[i] = table.PrimaryKey[i].ColumnName;
}

I hope this helps.
 
All the best,
Jack
