    I am trying to get my DataGrid to use a method whenever a cell in the grid is selected. I have tried to use the GestureRecognizers to get the functionality but my method. Am i approaching this the wrong way? Or is there something that I am missing?

    This is what I have right now for the xaml DataGrid:

    <ScrollView Grid.Row="2" IsClippedToBounds="True">
                        <telerikGrid:RadDataGrid AutoGenerateColumns="False" x:Name="AssignedRolesList" Margin="10,5,0,10" SelectionMode="Single" SelectionUnit="Cell">
                                <TapGestureRecognizer Tapped="GoToOperationalPeriods"/>
                                <common:PropertyGroupDescriptor PropertyName="RoleName" />
                                <telerikGrid:DataGridTextColumn PropertyName="OperationalPeriodName" HeaderText="Assigned Roles" HeaderStyle="{StaticResource DataGridHeader}" />



    This is what my function is on the backend:

    private void GoToOperationalPeriods(object sender, EventArgs e)
                RoleOperationalPeriodsDto selectedCell = (RoleOperationalPeriodsDto)AssignedRolesList.SelectedItem;
                Navigation.PushAsync(new ViewOperationalPeriods(selectedCell.OperationalPeriodId), true);

    Hello Evan,

    I would suggest you use the DataGrid SelectionChanged event which is fired when a cell/row is clicked/tapped.  Which element (cell or row) is considered during selection depends on the SelectionUnit property.   Here is a simple snippet:

    <telerikGrid:RadDataGrid x:Name="grid" AutoGenerateColumns="False" x:Name="AssignedRolesList" Margin="10,5,0,10"

    and the event handler:

    private void grid_SelectionChanged(object sender, DataGridSelectionChangedEventArgs e)

    I hope this would be helpful.
