JScript supports the use of indexed properties, but not the declaration of new ones.



A DataGridCell that represents a cell in the grid.

Property Value

The value, typed as object, of the cell.

Setting this property changes the position of the DataView to the specified row.

The following code example sets and gets the value of a cell by declaring a DataGridCell variable, setting its RowNumber and ColumnNumber values, then first changing, then returning, the value of the given cell.

private void SetCellValue(DataGrid myGrid){
   DataGridCell myCell = new DataGridCell();
   // Use an arbitrary cell.
   myCell.RowNumber = 1;
   myCell.ColumnNumber = 1;
   // Change the cell's value using the CurrentCell.
   myGrid[myCell]="New Value";
private void GetCellValue(DataGrid myGrid){
   DataGridCell myCell = new DataGridCell();
   // Use and arbitrary cell.
   myCell.RowNumber = 1;
   myCell.ColumnNumber = 1;
