CellOnly cells are selectable. Clicking a cell selects the cell. Clicking a row or column header does nothing.
CellOrRowHeaderCells and rows are selectable. Clicking a cell selects only the cell. Clicking a row header selects the full row.
FullRowOnly full rows are selectable. Clicking a cell or a row header selects the full row.

The SelectionMode and SelectionUnit properties together determine how users can select items in a DataGrid. For example, if the SelectionMode is Single and the SelectionUnit is Cell, the user can select only one cell at a time in the DataGrid.
