Hey guys,

When user clicks a cell in the grid I want to grab the column header of that cell and the value that sits at first column of that row. I have achieved the latter but need help on getting the Column header.

Here is where I got to:

private void RDEgrid_SelectionChanged(object sender, SelectionChangeEventArgs e)
        {
            //rdeView = my data
            var data = RDEgrid.SelectedItem as RdeView;
            MessageBox.Show(data.PatientColumn);
        }

This nicely returns the patient of the selected cell (even after sorting). Now only other data I need is the column header of that cell. How do I get it?

Any help is appreciated.
Hakki.

Hello Hakki,

You can get the column's header for the clicked cell like so:

var column = RDEgrid.CurrentCell.Column as GridViewDataColumn;
var columnHeader = column.Header;

I hope this helps.
