    I have a RadGrid in my application, and when the user clicks on a row, I want to show a dialog box with more information about the data in that row.

    So far, I've been using "SelectionChanged" to tell when someone picks a row and display the dialog. This works really well, unless they close the dialog and then want to re-open it for the same row. Since the selected row isn't changing, the dialog isn't showing. They need to pick another row, close the dialog box, then go back and select the first row again, which is not right.

    I've been looking for an event fires whenever a row is clicked, but I'm not seeing it. Can anyone help?

    Hi Todd Davis,

    With Q1, which is due in several days, we will introduce a RowActivated event on RadGridView. This event could help you implement the remaining portion of the required functionality. RowActivated events is raised when Enter key in pressed and row is selected or a selected row is double-clicked.

    public Window1()
        this.playersGrid.ItemsSource = Club.GetPlayers();
        this.playersGrid.RowActivated+=new System.EventHandler<RowEventArgs>(playersGrid_RowActivated);
    private void playersGrid_RowActivated(object sender, RowEventArgs e)
        var selectedItem = e.Row.Item;
        // show MessageBox
