Finding the index of something in the datagrid

Well I am pretty sure it was broken, not saying it was anyone's fault but mine. What was happening was I could drag and drop from and to any column in my datagrid, but if I dragged or dropped to the 3rd column, functions returning the index of the dropped on line returned empty and my scripts threw errors. 

After I deleted that data grid and recreated it, (after copying the scripts to a text file of course) and then creating a new data grid from scratch, everything worked properly again. Weird huh? 

I must have inadvertently whacked something in some column template or other and I was too frustrated to try and find out what it was.
