Please help me.

I have to get Primary Key value when user selects row in datagrid. I know that I can use CurrencyManager.Current to get selected row but how to get Primary Key from that?

I assume you use a dataview as your datasource for the datagrid

        dv.Item(DataGrid1.CurrentRowIndex).Item("yourprimarykey")

if you use a datatable


        dt.Rows(DataGrid1.CurrentRowIndex).Item("yourprimarykey")

This not solve my problem.

1) primary key is not displayed in grid
2) I don't know which column is primary key. It is contained in dataset definition and I don't want to code that.

1) it doesn't matter if the primary key isn't displayed in the grid, since in my comment I used the underlaying table.
2) you can get the information about the primary key like this (I assume you know which table is used)

        Dim x As DataColumn
        For Each x In ds.Tables(0).PrimaryKey
             ds.tables(0).rows(DataGrid1.CurrentRowIndex).Item(x.columnname)
        Next

I'll accept answer but it is not fully correct.

You have to refer to SelectedRow rather then ordinal possition of row in dataGrid. If DataGrid will be sorted it can have row numbers not matching table row numbers.

///dv.Item(DataGrid1.CurrentRowIndex)
