C# – Button in a column, getting the row from which it came on the Click event handler


I've set the itemsource of my WPF Datagrid to a List of Objects returned from my DAL. I've also added an extra column which contains a button, the xaml is below.

<toolkit:DataGridTemplateColumn  MinWidth="100" Header="View">
            <Button Click="Button_Click">View Details</Button>

This renders fine. However on the Button_Click method, is there any way I can get the row on the datagrid where the button resides? More specifically, one of the properties of my objects is "Id", and I'd like to be able to pass this into the constructor of another form in the event handler.

private void Button_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
        //I need to know which row this button is on so I can retrieve the "id"  

Perhaps I need something extra in my xaml, or maybe I'm going about this in a roundabout way? Any help/advice appreciated.

Best Solution

Basically your button will inherit the datacontext of a row data object. I am calling it as MyObject and hope MyObject.ID is what you wanted.

private void Button_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
    MyObject obj = ((FrameworkElement)sender).DataContext as MyObject;
    //Do whatever you wanted to do with MyObject.ID
