    You could use the ColumnUniqueName property in order to identify the cell of interest.

    Server code:
    GridHeaderItem headerItem = RadGrid1.MasterTableView.GetItems(GridItemType.Header)[0] as GridHeaderItem;
    // fetch the data with headerItem["ColumnUniqueName"].Text

    Accessing cells and rows

    hello shinu,

    Thanks for ur answer... but still my problem has not been solved because i used looping to go through each column and accessing the headers, according to my code it is giving only the static columns created in ItemTemplate is only coming in count,  is there any way to get the count of all the columns (static and dynamically loaded columns). please refer the code i have used;


     strbldr = new StringBuilder();



    for (int i = 0; i < RadGrid2.Columns.Count; i++)









    return strbldr.ToString();

    Hello Om,

    Please try the following:
    foreach (GridColumn column in RadGrid1.MasterTableView.RenderColumns)
        if(!(column is GridRowIndicatorColumn || column is GridExpandColumn || column is GridGroupSplitterColumn))
