WPF This should be really simple but I just can't find it. New to WPF so sorry about this.
I have a datagrid and just want to click on a cell and either show its contents in a text box or popup a messagebox with the value.
Thought it should be selectedvalue or selecteditem or something like that but have had no luck sofar.

Thanks
Cnat even find WPF zone to put this question in

This is how the dataGridd is filled

cmd.ExecuteNonQuery();
SqlDataAdapter daPopGRN = new SqlDataAdapter(cmd);

DataSet dsPopGRN = new DataSet();
daPopGRN.Fill(dsPopGRN, "GRN");

dgGrn.ItemsSource = dsPopGRN.Tables[0].DefaultView;

I ended up using this.

int i = dgGrn.Items.IndexOf(dgGrn.SelectedItem);
                var rowData = dgGrn.Items[i] as DataRowView;
                ret = rowData[ColName].ToString();
