How to get the record when double-clicked on the row in WinRT DataGrid (SfDataGrid) ?

et the record when double clicked on the row

In SfDataGrid, you can get the record based on row and column index from mouse pointer position. The record can be accessed by using any mouse events (example MouseDoubleClick event). This event is triggered when you double click on the row. Within this event, you can access the Visual Container by using the GetVisualContainer()  extension method that exists in the Syncfusion.UI.Xaml.Grid.Helpers. The ResolveToRecordIndex is resolved by using current RowIndex and you can get the record index. From record index, you can get the record from dataGrid.View.   


using Syncfusion.Data;
using Syncfusion.UI.Xaml.Grid;
using Syncfusion.UI.Xaml.Grid.Helpers;
this.dataGrid.MouseDoubleClick += dataGrid_MouseDoubleClick;
private void dataGrid_MouseDoubleClick(object sender, MouseButtonEventArgs e)
   var visualcontainer = this.dataGrid.GetVisualContainer();
   // get the row and column index based on the pointer position 
   var rowColumnIndex = visualcontainer.PointToCellRowColumnIndex(e.GetPosition(visualcontainer));
   if (rowColumnIndex.IsEmpty)
   var colindex = this.dataGrid.ResolveToGridVisibleColumnIndex(rowColumnIndex.ColumnIndex);
   if (colindex < 0 || colindex >= this.dataGrid.Columns.Count)
   var recordindex = this.dataGrid.ResolveToRecordIndex(rowColumnIndex.RowIndex);
   if (recordindex < 0)
   var recordentry = this.dataGrid.View.GroupDescriptions.Count == 0 ? this.dataGrid.View.Records[recordindex] : this.dataGrid.View.TopLevelGroup.DisplayElements[recordindex];
   //Returns if caption summary or group summary row encountered.
   if (!recordentry.IsRecords)
   var record = (recordentry as RecordEntry).Data;
   var value = record.GetType().GetProperty(dataGrid.Columns[colindex].MappingName).GetValue(record) ?? string.Empty;
   MessageBox.Show("Cell Value : " + value);
