Hi Jeet,

let's say you'r binded data artifact (class is MyData)

public class MyData

   public string Name {get;set;}

   public string Address {get;set}


so yuo have somewhere a collection of of MyData like List<MyData>

List<MyData> myDataList = new List<MyData>();

and do somewhere in the code, I presume, something like this:


Now, yo want to find some row on DataGrid, but you really want is to find a data. So, make a query over the myDataList to find MyData object of interest, let's say like this

var foundMyData = from data in myDataList where (. condition..) select data;

We found the data we interested in, so no let-\'s make it selected on UI. So find the index of the foundMyData in the list and select corresponding row on the grid.

If you use Sorting, or View so the data visible on the screen can be filtered or sorted, you need to consider that "transformations" too, naturally.
