My objective is to obtain a collection of cell data when a user selects a non-contiguous selection (SelectionMode="Extended" and ClipboardCopyMode="Cells").  The SelectedCells property returns a collection of GridViewCellInfo items.  GridViewCellInfo has two properties that expose the underlying data object and a GridViewColumn.  From these two pieces of information, how can I obtain the cell content?

Hello Brian,

 Both GridViewBoundColumnBase (and its descendants like GridViewDataColumn, GridViewComboBoxColumn, etc.) and GridViewExpressionColumn expose a method called GetValueForItem. You need to check if the column in the CellInfo is either of those two types and if so, call the GetValueForItem method on the column, passing the Item from the CellInfo. This will return the value of the cell.
