    UI for ASP.NET AJAX version: 2015.1.225

    I'm trying to grab information from the radgrid when the user selects a row.  The Javascript function fires as expected, but I can't seem to get the right syntax to grab the cell information.

        <script type="text/javascript">
            function launchDetails(sender, eventArgs) {


    If I use 'sender.MasterTableView.getColumnByUniqueName("caseName");' I get the column information as expected.
    If I use 'parseInt(eventArgs.get_itemIndexHierarchical());' I get the selected row index as expected.

    If I use 'sender.MasterTableView.getCellByColumnUniqueName(parseInt(eventArgs.get_itemIndexHierarchical()),"caseName");' I get the following error:
    'Uncaught TypeError: a.get_element is not a function(…)' at 'Telerik.Web.UI.GridTableView.getCellByColumnUniqueName'

    I've also tried this line of code without the 'parseInt', but obtain the same results.  How can I grab the "caseName" at the designated clicked row?

    Hello Robert,

    In order to retrieve the name from the selected row client-side you can use the approach illustrated in the following code snippet.

    function rowSelected(sender, args) {
        var grid = sender;
        var masterTableView = grid.get_masterTableView();
        var selectedRow = args.get_item();
        var name = selectedRow.getDataKeyValue("Name");

    Note that in order for the getDataKeyValue() method to work you need to add the corresponding data field to the ClientDataKeyNames collection of the GridTableView.
