Remarks

A DataGridItem represents an item (row) in a DataGrid control, such as a heading section, a footer section, or a data row.

The data items of a DataGrid control are stored in a DataGridItemCollection that can be accessed by using the Items property of the DataGrid control.

You can use a DataGridItem to programmatically access the properties of an item in a DataGrid control.

Example

[Visual Basic, C#] The following example demonstrates how to use a DataGridItem to display the contents of each data item in the DataGrid control.
