A DataRow is simply an extension of a Row. The DataRow class inherits from the basic Row class, and provides functionality for individual cells, editing and viewing cell contents, etc.

If you access the DataRows property, the grid is giving only rows that it knows are DataRows. If you access the SelectedRows property, the grid isn’t sure if you have an InsertionRow selected, or a TextRow that has no cells, etc.

If you know what kind of rows can be selected in your grid, you can cast them to DataRows using the ctype function in VB, or the casting operator in C#. Otherwise you can check the type of each row as you loop through the SelectedRows, using a “If typeof row is Xceed.Grid.DataRow then” clause.

Good luck!
