I am trying to find, given a GridDataItem the index of the DataRow in the DataTable it was bound from.

I thought DataSetIndex looked like the answer but it seems to return the index of the row in the GridView and not the index in the original DataTable i.e. if the user has sorted the grid it references the wrong DataRow.

What am I doing wrong?

Hello ADe,

This information is only available in the itemDataBound event handler. If you access this value in a button click, for example, it will point to the index of the item in the masterTable.

Sorry -- I don't understand.

Is there a way to get the underlying index in the original data table from the radgrid selected item?

Or does this have to be done manually :(

Hi Brock,

Attached to this message, is a small application, which demonstrates the logic behind this property. Run the sample, and go to another page - 2, 3, etc. Select an item - the datasetIndex will be a value larger than the pagesize, i.e. the number of records on the current page.

Kind regards,
