This method provides reference to the DataItem object (data container). Useful to obtain data from a particular row cell passing the UniqueName of the column as an indexer. Applicable only when client-side binding is used.



<telerik:RadGrid RenderMode="Lightweight" ID="RadGrid1" runat="server">
        <ClientEvents OnRowDataBound="RadGrid1_RowDataBound" />
function RadGrid1_RowDataBound(sender, eventArgs) {
    //extracts the employee name (from column with unique name "EmployeeName") of the currently bound grid item
    var employeeName = eventArgs.get_gridDataItem().get_dataItem()["EmployeeName"];
