    i was hoping you guys could help me out. I am binding to my raddatagrid through a data model from a sql query through a wcf service. I need to get the value of a specific cell when a single or multiple rows are selected on button press.

    Hi Johnathan,

    Please have a look at the following article from our documentation page -  Get Row Item and DataGridCellInfo Item from a Physical Point. You can apply the following modification to use it within the Tapped event of the DataGrid:

    private async void grid_Tapped(object sender, Windows.UI.Xaml.Input.TappedRoutedEventArgs e) {
        var physicalPoint = e.GetPosition(sender as RadDataGrid);
        var cell = (sender as RadDataGrid).HitTestService.CellInfoFromPoint(physicalPoint);
        if (cell != null)
            var dialog = new MessageDialog(string.Format(cell.Column.Header.ToString()), "COLUMN HEADER: " );
            await dialog.ShowAsync();
