ColumnView.GetFocusedDataRow() Method

Returns a DataRow object that represents the focused row.

Namespace: DevExpress.XtraGrid.Views.Base

Assembly: DevExpress.XtraGrid.v20.1.dll


public DataRow GetFocusedDataRow()
Public Function GetFocusedDataRow As DataRow


Type Description

A DataRow object representing the focused row.


If the View's data source is a custom collection of objects, the GetFocusedDataRow method returns null (Nothing in Visual Basic). If the View's data is supplied by a DataTable or DataView object, an DataRow object representing the focused row is returned.

The DataRow object allows you to access row values, row errors, delete rows, etc. Please refer to the DataRow class description for details.

DataRow row = gridView1.GetFocusedDataRow();

To get objects which correspond to grid rows regardless of the data source's type, use the ColumnView.GetRow method.

For group rows, the GetFocusedDataRow method returns an object that represents the first data row in the associated group.

See the Accessing Rows in Code. Row Handles section in the Rows topic to learn more.


Detail pattern Views do not contain data and they are never displayed within XtraGrid. So, the GetFocusedDataRow member must not be invoked for these Views. The GetFocusedDataRow member can only be used with real Views that are displayed within the Grid Control. The real Views with which an end-user interacts at runtime can be accessed using the following methods.
