Just starting out with this so may be a simple question!

I have a listbox containing a grid which in turn contains stack panels to display a list of jobs which is set as the DataSource for the ListBox... .  Now I have a column in the grid for the job id and a column with an image which I click to edit the job on another page.  My xaml is shown below:-

 
<Grid Margin="0,0,0,10" Name="SelectGrid">
																		<Grid.ColumnDefinitions>
										<ColumnDefinition Width="90" />
										<ColumnDefinition Width="90" />
										<ColumnDefinition Width="50" />
										<ColumnDefinition Width="130" />
										<ColumnDefinition Width="50" />
										<ColumnDefinition Width="50" />
									</Grid.ColumnDefinitions>

									<StackPanel Grid.Column="0">
										<TextBlock Text="Job ID:" Foreground="#FFFFFF" FontSize="22" FontWeight="Bold" Margin="10, 0, 0, 0"  />
										<TextBlock Text="Postcode:" Foreground="#FFFFFF" FontSize="18" Margin="15, 0, 0, 0" />
									</StackPanel>

									<Grid Margin="0,0,0,10" Name="SelectGrid">
	<Grid.ColumnDefinitions>
		<ColumnDefinition Width="90" />
		<ColumnDefinition Width="50" />
	</Grid.ColumnDefinitions>

	<StackPanel Grid.Column="0">
		<TextBlock Text="Job ID:" Foreground="#FFFFFF" FontSize="22" FontWeight="Bold" Margin="10, 0, 0, 0" />
		<TextBlock Text="Postcode:" Foreground="#FFFFFF" FontSize="18" Margin="15, 0, 0, 0"  />
	</StackPanel>

	<StackPanel Grid.Column="1">
		<Image Name="View" Height="45" Width="45" Source="Images/view.jpg" Margin="-30, 0, 0, 0"  MouseLeftButtonDown="Text_MouseLeftButtonDown" MouseLeftButtonUp="ViewPatch_MouseLeftButtonUp"  />
	</StackPanel>
</Grid>

Open in new window


My question is :- how do I recover the Job ID when I click on the 'view' button in the row?  I am more used to working with WinForms where you would be able to get the row containing the clicked cell and from there to any other cell in the row.  Is there a similar approach to working with Windows Mobile 7?

When you set the image in the grid set the Tag to the job Id. On the button click handler just case the sender as a Button and take the JobID.

How would I do that?  The ListBox and hence the grid is data bound and as such I don't explicitely create the image or any of the rows in the grid

Tag={Binding JobID}  assuming that's a member of the class you are binding to

Thanks - that will work perfectly in this situation.  For future reference though - is it possible to get the 'row', bound data object and specific cell value in the code behind handlers?

I am sure, but did not encounter it yet. Perhaps the getrowdefinition() is part of the solution.
