Colin Eberhardt did a nice article on the WPF datagrid WPF DataGrid Practical Examples[^] - I would certainly look at databinding before working directly with the cells.

Hi,
I've been struggling on this one too.
 
You can try this (it works for me):
 
Dim drv As System.Data.DataRowView = CType(Me.myDataGrid.SelectedItem, System.Data.DataRowView)
MsgBox(drv.Item(0).ToString())
 
Works fine even with Option Strict On, hope it helps!

Try following helper function
 
public static DataGridCell GetCell(DataGrid dataGrid, int row, int column)
        {
            DataGridRow rowContainer = GetRow(dataGrid, row);
            if (rowContainer != null)
            {
                DataGridCellsPresenter presenter = GetVisualChild<datagridcellspresenter>(rowContainer);
 
                // try to get the cell but it may possibly be virtualized
                DataGridCell cell = (DataGridCell)presenter.ItemContainerGenerator.ContainerFromIndex(column);
                if (cell == null)
                {
                    // now try to bring into view and retreive the cell
                    dataGrid.ScrollIntoView(rowContainer, dataGrid.Columns[column]);
 
                    cell = (DataGridCell)presenter.ItemContainerGenerator.ContainerFromIndex(column);
                }
 
                return cell;
            }
 
            return null;
}</datagridcellspresenter>
