Hi Jayden,

Firstly, you need to get use ItemContainerGenerator to get the correct row from data (in your datagrid1_SelectionChanged event).

var row = (DataGridRow)datagrid1.ItemContainerGenerator.


then get the TextBlock like this:

var text = datagrid1.Columns[0].GetCellContent(row) as TextBlock;
