Property Value

The list of cells that are currently selected.


There are three selection modes for DataGrid. The selection mode is set with the SelectionUnit property. Depending on the SelectionUnit, SelectedCells or SelectedItems will contain a collection of selected items as defined in the following table.

DataGridSelectionUnit value SelectedCells value SelectedItems value
Cell Collection of selected cells Empty
FullRow Collection of cells in the selected rows Collection of selected rows
CellOrRowHeader Collection of selected cells, including all cells in a selected row Collection of selected rows or empty if no full rows are selected

When a cell is selected, the DataGridCell.Selected event is raised, the DataGridCell.IsSelected property is set to true, and the cell is added to the SelectedCells collection.

When a row is selected, the DataGridRow.Selected event is raised, the DataGridRow.IsSelected property is set to true, and the row is added to the SelectedItems collection.

When the selection changes, the SelectionChanged and SelectedCellsChanged events are raised if the new or old selection contains a row. The SelectionChanged event is not raised if the new or old selection contains only cells.
