17 Nov 20232 minutes to read

You can get the index value of a selected rowcell or row by using the GetSelectedRowCellIndexes method of the DataGrid component.

This is demonstrated in the below sample code where the GetSelectedRowCellIndexes method is called on button click which returns the selected rowcell indexes,

@using Syncfusion.Blazor.Buttons
@using Syncfusion.Blazor.Grids

<SfButton OnClick="SelectedRowCellIndex" CssClass="e-primary" IsPrimary="true" Content="Get selected rowcell index"></SfButton>

<SfGrid @ref="DefaultGrid" DataSource="@Employees">
    <GridSelectionSettings Mode=SelectionMode.Cell></GridSelectionSettings>
        <GridColumn Field=@nameof(EmployeeData.EmployeeID) TextAlign="TextAlign.Center" HeaderText="Employee ID" Width="120"></GridColumn>
        <GridColumn Field=@nameof(EmployeeData.FirstName) HeaderText="First Name" ShowInColumnChooser="false" Width="130"></GridColumn>
        <GridColumn Field=@nameof(EmployeeData.LastName) HeaderText="Last Name" Width="130"></GridColumn>
        <GridColumn Field=@nameof(EmployeeData.Title) HeaderText="Title" Width="120"></GridColumn>
        <GridColumn Field=@nameof(EmployeeData.HireDate) HeaderText="Hire Date" Format="d" TextAlign="TextAlign.Right" Width="150"></GridColumn>

    private SfGrid<EmployeeData> DefaultGrid;

    public List<EmployeeData> Employees { get; set; }

    protected override void OnInitialized()
        Employees = Enumerable.Range(1, 9).Select(x => new EmployeeData()
            EmployeeID = x,
            FirstName = (new string[] { "Nancy", "Andrew", "Janet", "Margaret", "Steven" })[new Random().Next(5)],
            LastName = (new string[] { "Davolio", "Fuller", "Leverling", "Peacock", "Buchanan" })[new Random().Next(5)],
            Title = (new string[] { "Sales Representative", "Vice President, Sales", "Sales Manager",
                                    "Inside Sales Coordinator" })[new Random().Next(4)],
            HireDate = DateTime.Now.AddDays(-x),

    public async Task SelectedRowCellIndex()
      var value = await this.DefaultGrid.GetSelectedRowCellIndexes();

    public class EmployeeData
        public int? EmployeeID { get; set; }
        public string FirstName { get; set; }
        public string LastName { get; set; }
        public string Title { get; set; }
        public DateTime? HireDate { get; set; }


For getting the rowcell index value, the Mode property of the GridSelectionSettings component should be set as Cell.
