Hi Loraine,

 

If you need to access the column name of the current cell just add its UniqueName as shown below:

private void btn_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
        {
            var cell = this.radGridView.CurrentCell.Column.UniqueName;
            MessageBox.Show(cell);
        }

MainPage.xaml:

<telerik:RadGridView x:Name="radGridView" SelectionUnit="Cell" AutoGenerateColumns="False">
            <telerik:RadGridView.Columns>
                <telerik:GridViewDataColumn UniqueName="col1" DataMemberBinding="{Binding Age}" Header="Age"/>
                <telerik:GridViewDataColumn UniqueName="col2" DataMemberBinding="{Binding FirstName}" Header="First Name"/>
                <telerik:GridViewDataColumn DataMemberBinding="{Binding LastName}" Header="Last Name"/>
                <telerik:GridViewDataColumn DataMemberBinding="{Binding Married}" Header="Is Married"/>
            </telerik:RadGridView.Columns>
        </telerik:RadGridView>


The code you have used will return the type of the column. If you do not specify the UniqueName for a column, the snippet above will return the underlying property to which the column is bound to.
