Hi Peter,
Thanks for the tip and for reframing the problem to provide mutually exclusive row selection, without the complexity of dealing with the checkbox. Nice! :-)

If you just want to carry out some processing on the data in the selected row, you can use the dghilitedline property of the datagrid to find out which row the user has clicked on and take whatever action you want.  Make sure the multiple lines property  for the datagrid is not selected and use the selectionChanged event to check the dghilitedline.  If there are multiple things you might want to do with the selected row, use a popup menu activated by a right click (more complicated).
