wish help you to fix your issue The problem seems to be that each row uses the datagrid source as its "new" datacontext kind of thing. So from each row you need to get out of the grid and point to someting higher in the hierarchy to get the parent datacontext. These solutions may help. Solution 2 worked for me when I encountered the same problem.
Solution 1 using the Locator

I hope this helps you . From scratch - Silverlight 4 does not support bindings in Style Setters (this functionality is now available in SL5). For SL4 there is a workaround: SetterValueBindingHelper.

I hope this helps you . , The problem is evident from your code...
code :
         Deal="{Binding RelativeSource={RelativeSource FindAncestor, 
                        AncestorType={x:Type DataGrid}}, 
         <Binding Path="SwapswireBuyerStatusText"/>
         <Binding Path="SwapswireSellerStatusText"/>

         **<Binding RelativeSource="{RelativeSource FindAncestor, 
                  AncestorType={x:Type DataGrid}}"

                     WarningPath="/Resources/Warning.png" />
     String str1 = System.Convert.ToString(values[0]);
     String str2 = System.Convert.ToString(values[1]);
     ** this.DealProp = new DealObject();
     this.DealProp.Deal = values[2] as CMBSTrade; **

     if (DealProp.Deal.Swapswire)

it fixes the issue After finding your DataTemplate you have to load whatever is inside it. For Example:
code :
var grid = dt.LoadContent() as DataGrid/StackPanel/AnyElement;
var item = grid.Children.First(c => c.Name == "element1");

I wish did fix the issue. The bindings in the template don't work because the DataContext is a DataRowView from the DataTable.
One solution is to change your template to set the DataContext to the object you want (of type A), then all your bindings would work (Name, GroupName, IsSelected). To do that, you will need to make a converter and have your template use it.
code :
<Window x:Class="WpfApplication17.MainWindow"
        Title="MainWindow" Height="350" Width="525">
        <viewModel:DataRowViewConverter x:Key="drvc" />
        <DataTemplate x:Key="ATemplate">
            <RadioButton DataContext="{Binding RelativeSource={RelativeSource AncestorType=DataGridCell}, Converter={StaticResource drvc}}" Content="{Binding Path=Name}" GroupName="{Binding Path=GroupName}" IsChecked="{Binding Path=IsSelected}" />
        <DataTemplate x:Key="BTemplate">
            <CheckBox DataContext="{Binding RelativeSource={RelativeSource AncestorType=DataGridCell}, Converter={StaticResource drvc}}" Content="{Binding Path=FullName}" IsChecked="{Binding Path=IsChecked}" />
        <DataGrid AutoGenerateColumns="True" ItemsSource="{Binding Items}" AutoGeneratingColumn="DataGrid_AutoGeneratingColumn" CanUserAddRows="False">

help you fix your problem Look at this usage of RelativeSource based binding, like {Binding RelativeSource={RelativeSource AncestorType={x:Type Window}}. Here is example:
code :
    <DataGrid ItemsSource="{Binding Strings}" AutoGenerateColumns="False" >
        <DataGridTemplateColumn Header="String" Width="SizeToCells" IsReadOnly="True">
                <DataTemplate DataType="{x:Type soDataGridHeplAttempt:ClicableItemsModel}">
                    <ListBox HorizontalAlignment="Stretch" VerticalAlignment="Stretch" ItemsSource="{Binding ClickableItems}">
                                <StackPanel Orientation="Horizontal"></StackPanel>
                            <Style TargetType="ListBoxItem">
                                <Setter Property="ContentTemplate">
                                            <Button  Width="70" Content="{Binding }" Style="{StaticResource ButtonInCellStyle}" HorizontalAlignment="Stretch" VerticalAlignment="Stretch" 
                                                     Command="{Binding RelativeSource={RelativeSource AncestorType={x:Type Window}}, Path=DataContext.Command}" 
                                                     CommandParameter="{Binding RelativeSource={RelativeSource Self}, Path=Content}"/>
private ICommand _command;
public ObservableCollection<ClicableItemsModel> Strings { get; set; }

public ICommand Command
    get { return _command ?? (_command = new RelayCommand<object>(MethodOnCommmand)); }

private void MethodOnCommmand(object obj)

   public ObservableCollection<String> ClickableItems { get; set; }
