I want the rows that the user selects to be deleted.
As far as I know, the DataGrid.ItemsSource cannot be removed directly using the DataGrid.Items.Remove() method, so I must convert the DataGrid.ItemsSource to a DataTable and use the DataGrid.ItemsSource = DataTable.DefaultView property.
To convert DataGrid.ItemsSource to DataTable, I tried the following solutions in various situations, and each has advantages and disadvantages (I spent several months researching and testing):

What I have tried:

First solution (I made this by myself):
XAML
<DataGrid x:Name="BookDataGrid" EnableRowVirtualization="True" VirtualizingPanel.ScrollUnit="Pixel" CanUserAddRows="False" BeginningEdit="BookDataGrid_BeginningEdit" RowEditEnding="BookDataGrid_RowEditEnding" HeadersVisibility="Column" AutoGenerateColumns="False" ItemsSource="{Binding}" HorizontalAlignment="Left" VerticalAlignment="Top" Height="386" Width="486" Margin="0">
    <DataGrid.Columns>
        <DataGridTextColumn x:Name="BookName" Binding="{Binding BookName}" Width="SizeToHeader">
            <DataGridTextColumn.EditingElementStyle>
                <Style TargetType="TextBox">
                    <Setter Property="AcceptsReturn" Value="True"/>
                    <Setter Property="ContextMenu" Value="{StaticResource CustomContextMenu}"/>
                    <Setter Property="TextWrapping" Value="WrapWithOverflow"/>
                </Style>
            </DataGridTextColumn.EditingElementStyle>
        </DataGridTextColumn>
        <DataGridTemplateColumn x:Name="BookImage" Width="SizeToHeader">
            <DataGridTemplateColumn.CellTemplate>
                <DataTemplate>
                    <Image x:Name="BookImg" Source="{Binding BookImage}"/>
                </DataTemplate>
            </DataGridTemplateColumn.CellTemplate>
        </DataGridTemplateColumn>
    </DataGrid.Columns>
</DataGrid>
C#
public byte[] ImageSourceToBytes(BitmapEncoder BitEncoder, ImageSource ImgSource)
{
    byte[] Bytes = null;
    switch ((ImgSource as BitmapSource) != null)
    {
        case true:
            BitEncoder.Frames.Add(BitmapFrame.Create((ImgSource as BitmapSource)));
            using (var Stream = new System.IO.MemoryStream())
            {
                BitEncoder.Save(Stream);
                Bytes = Stream.ToArray();
            }
            break;
    }
    return Bytes;
}
public DataTable DataGridToDataTable(DataGrid DG, DataTable DT, byte NumberOfColumns, byte VisualColumnIndex, string ControlName)
{
    for (int i = 0; i < DG.Items.Count; i++)
    {
        DT.Rows.Add(DG.Items[i]);
    }
    for (int i = 0; i < DG.Items.Count; i++)
    {
        for (byte j = 0; j < NumberOfColumns; j++)
        {
            switch (j == VisualColumnIndex)
            {
                case true:
                    FrameworkElement FE = DG.Columns[j].GetCellContent((DataGridRow)DG.ItemContainerGenerator.ContainerFromIndex(i));
                    Image Img = new Image() { Source = ((((DataGridTemplateColumn)DG.Columns[j]).CellTemplate.FindName(ControlName, FE) as Image).Source) };
                    DT.Rows[i][j] = ImageSourceToBytes(new PngBitmapEncoder(), Img.Source);
                    break;
                default:
                    DG.ScrollIntoView((DataRowView)DG.Items[i]);
                    DT.Rows[i][j] = ((DG.Columns[j].GetCellContent(((DataGridRow)DG.ItemContainerGenerator.ContainerFromIndex(i)))) as TextBlock).Text;
                    break;
            }
        }
    }
    return DT;
}
Advantage: Even if one of the columns is of the Image type, this approach operates without an error.
Disadvantage: The method DG.ScrollIntoView((DataRowView)DG.Items[i]) must be used when the EnableRowVirtualization attribute is set to True; otherwise, a null error will occur. For large numbers of rows, this approach is incredibly sluggish (e.g., if we have 20,000 rows, it could take an hour or more).

Second solution (I made this by myself):
XAML
<DataGrid x:Name="BookDataGrid" EnableRowVirtualization="False" CanUserAddRows="False" BeginningEdit="BookDataGrid_BeginningEdit" RowEditEnding="BookDataGrid_RowEditEnding" HeadersVisibility="Column" AutoGenerateColumns="False" ItemsSource="{Binding}" HorizontalAlignment="Left" VerticalAlignment="Top" Height="386" Width="486" Margin="0">
    <DataGrid.Columns>
        <DataGridTextColumn x:Name="BookName" Binding="{Binding BookName}" Width="SizeToHeader">
            <DataGridTextColumn.EditingElementStyle>
                <Style TargetType="TextBox">
                    <Setter Property="AcceptsReturn" Value="True"/>
                    <Setter Property="ContextMenu" Value="{StaticResource CustomContextMenu}"/>
                    <Setter Property="TextWrapping" Value="WrapWithOverflow"/>
                </Style>
            </DataGridTextColumn.EditingElementStyle>
        </DataGridTextColumn>
        <DataGridTemplateColumn x:Name="BookImage" Width="SizeToHeader">
            <DataGridTemplateColumn.CellTemplate>
                <DataTemplate>
                    <Image x:Name="BookImg" Source="{Binding BookImage}"/>
                </DataTemplate>
            </DataGridTemplateColumn.CellTemplate>
        </DataGridTemplateColumn>
    </DataGrid.Columns>
</DataGrid>
C#
public DataTable DataGridToDataTable(DataGrid DG, DataTable DT, byte NumberOfColumns, byte VisualColumnIndex, string ControlName)
{
    for (int i = 0; i < DG.Items.Count; i++)
    {
        DT.Rows.Add(DG.Items[i]);
    }
    for (int i = 0; i < DG.Items.Count; i++)
    {
        for (byte j = 0; j < NumberOfColumns; j++)
        {
            switch (j == VisualColumnIndex)
            {
                case true:
                    FrameworkElement FE = DG.Columns[j].GetCellContent((DataGridRow)DG.ItemContainerGenerator.ContainerFromIndex(i));
                    Image Img = new Image() { Source = ((((DataGridTemplateColumn)DG.Columns[j]).CellTemplate.FindName(ControlName, FE) as Image).Source) };
                    DT.Rows[i][j] = ImageSourceToBytes(new PngBitmapEncoder(), Img.Source);
                    break;
                default:
                    DT.Rows[i][j] = ((DG.Columns[j].GetCellContent(((DataGridRow)DG.ItemContainerGenerator.ContainerFromIndex(i)))) as TextBlock).Text;
                    break;
            }
        }
    }
    return DT;
}
Advantage: This solution converts DataGrid.ItemsSource to DataTable faster than the first because EnableRowVirtualization is equal to False in this case.
Disadvantage: This solution consumes a lot of memory; for example, if we have 100,000 rows and the database table is 2GB in size, it will consume 2GB of RAM and a RAM space error may occur.

Third solution:
XAML
<DataGrid x:Name="BookDataGrid" EnableRowVirtualization="True" VirtualizingPanel.ScrollUnit="Pixel" CanUserAddRows="False" BeginningEdit="BookDataGrid_BeginningEdit" RowEditEnding="BookDataGrid_RowEditEnding" HeadersVisibility="Column" AutoGenerateColumns="False" ItemsSource="{Binding}" HorizontalAlignment="Left" VerticalAlignment="Top" Height="386" Width="486" Margin="0">
    <DataGrid.Columns>
        <DataGridTextColumn x:Name="BookName" Binding="{Binding BookName}" Width="SizeToHeader">
            <DataGridTextColumn.EditingElementStyle>
                <Style TargetType="TextBox">
                    <Setter Property="AcceptsReturn" Value="True"/>
                    <Setter Property="ContextMenu" Value="{StaticResource CustomContextMenu}"/>
                    <Setter Property="TextWrapping" Value="WrapWithOverflow"/>
                </Style>
            </DataGridTextColumn.EditingElementStyle>
        </DataGridTextColumn>
        <DataGridTemplateColumn x:Name="BookImage" Width="SizeToHeader">
            <DataGridTemplateColumn.CellTemplate>
                <DataTemplate>
                    <Image x:Name="BookImg" Source="{Binding BookImage}"/>
                </DataTemplate>
            </DataGridTemplateColumn.CellTemplate>
        </DataGridTemplateColumn>
    </DataGrid.Columns>
</DataGrid>

C#
uint[] BookCodeSelectedItems = null; //I need this for further calculations
private void DataGridDeleteMenu_PreviewMouseLeftButtonDown(object sender, MouseButtonEventArgs e)
{
    switch (BookDataGrid.SelectedItems.Count > 0)
    {
        case true:
            List<object> DefaultRow = new List<object>();
            DataTable BDT = ((DataView)BookDataGrid.ItemsSource).ToTable(); //The first time the event is executed, no error occurs, but the second time the error occurs on this line
            for (int i = 0; i < BookDataGrid.Items.Count; i++)
            {
                DefaultRow.Add(BookDataGrid.Items[i]);
            }
            BookCodeSelectedItems = new uint[BookDataGrid.SelectedItems.Count];
            for (int i = 0; i < BookDataGrid.SelectedItems.Count; i++)
            {
                BookCodeSelectedItems[i] = uint.Parse(BDT.Rows[i][3].ToString());
                DefaultRow.Remove(BookDataGrid.SelectedItems[i]);
            }
            BookDataGrid.ItemsSource = DefaultRow;
            break;
    }
}
Advantage: The DataGrid.ItemsSource is rapidly changed to DataTable in this approach when the DataGridDeleteMenu PreviewMouseLeftButtonDown event is fired for the first time.
Disadvantage: However, when the event is re-run, a System.InvalidCastException: 'Unable to cast object of type 'System.Collections.Generic.List 1[System.Object]' to type 'System.Data.DataView'.' error occurs.

BookDataGrid.ItemsSource = DefaultRow;

After that line executes, the ItemsSource is no longer a DataView; it's a List<object>.

You can't cast a List<object> to a DataView.

Yes, you are right, I tested the following code (I put a breakpoint):
var dataType = BookDataGrid.ItemsSource.GetType().BaseType;

For the first time:
Value= {Name = "MarshalByValueComponent" FullName = "System.ComponentModel.MarshalByValueComponent"}
Type= System.Type {System.RuntimeType}
For the second time:
Value= {Name = "Object" FullName = "System.Object"}
Type= System.Type {System.RuntimeType}
It seems that only the value has changed.
But what is the solution?
Richard Deeming 15-Jul-22 4:03am    
The solution is to not change the type of the ItemsSource. Instead, filter the data source in-place.

Again, you are correct. After tinkering with the solutions mentioned above, I finally found the right solution.
I made a strategic mistake. When we connect "DataGrid.ItemsSource" to "DataView" or "CollectionViewSource.Source" for the first time, the values of "DataView" and "CollectionViewSource.Source" change automatically with each change (like insert, edit, and delete), so the code that connects "DataGrid.ItemsSource" to "DataView" or "CollectionViewSource.Source" does not need to be rewritten.Again, you are correct.

Do you think my solution still has problems?
Please see the output of my solution. I tested it.
Do you still believe there could be a problem with the solution I offered?
Thank you for your attention.

Simply use an ObservableCollection as the ItemSource. The DataGrid them becomes the "View" into the data. Now simply removing items from the ObservableCollection will be reflected in the DataGrid.`

Here is a simple example:

1. Class to hold a row:
C#
public class Person
{
    public string Name { get; set; }
    public int Age { get; set; }
}

2. The code-behind with the ObservableCollection:
C#
public partial class MainWindow : Window
{
    public MainWindow()
    {
        InitializeComponent();
    }

    public ObservableCollection<Person> Items { get; set; } = new()
    {
        new() { Name = "Freddie", Age = 21 },
        new() { Name = "Milly", Age = 18 },
        new() { Name = "Caddie", Age = 23 },
    };

    private void Button_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
    {
        Items.RemoveAt(0);
    }
}

3. The View:
XML
<Grid DataContext="{Binding ElementName=Window1}">
    <Grid.RowDefinitions>
        <RowDefinition Height="*" />
        <RowDefinition Height="Auto" />
    </Grid.RowDefinitions>
    <DataGrid ItemsSource="{Binding Items}"/>
    <Button Content="Delete First Row"
            Click="Button_Click"
            Grid.Row="1" Width="200"
            Padding="10" Margin="10" />
</Grid>

Now when you click the button, the first Row of the collection is removed, the ObservableCollection raises a CollectionChanged which the DataGrid will capture via the DataBinding and will update itself.

Thank you for your time and feedback.
I'll review your response and notify you of the outcome.
Finally, I found a solution that does not have the above problems.

I made a strategic mistake. When we connect DataGrid.ItemsSource to DataView or CollectionViewSource.Source for the first time, the values of DataView and CollectionViewSource.Source change automatically with each change (like insert, edit, and delete), so the code that connects DataGrid.ItemsSource to DataView or CollectionViewSource.Source does not need to be rewritten.

Look carefully at the image below to get a better understanding of how this feature works. When DataGrid.ItemsSource changes in the first window, DataGrid.ItemsSource in the second window also changes.

I tested the following codes in different situations, using nearly the entire capacity of the MS Access database.

The conditions are as follows:

Number of records = 252,500

Database size = 2,094,128 KB (database size without any rows = 604 KB)

Size of each row = (Database size - database size without any rows) / Number of records => about 8.291184 KB (Of course, if I haven't made a mistake)

            List<object> Row = new List<object>();
            //Additionally, I tested the "AddRange" function of the "List<>" and it appeared to be one second slower. I mean "Row.AddRange(BookDataGrid.Items.Cast<object>().ToList());"
            for (int i = 0; i < BookDataGrid.Items.Count; i++)
            {
                Row.Add(BookDataGrid.Items[i]);
            }
            BookCodeSelectedItems = new object[BookDataGrid.SelectedItems.Count]; //I need this for further calculations
            ISBN_Value = new string[BookDataGrid.SelectedItems.Count]; //I need this for further calculations
            int j = 0;
            foreach (DataRowView DRV in BookDataGrid.SelectedItems)
            {
                BookCodeSelectedItems[j] = BDV.Table.Rows[BDV.Table.Rows.IndexOf(DRV.Row)][3];
                ISBN_Value[j] = BDV.Table.Rows[BDV.Table.Rows.IndexOf(DRV.Row)][14];
            }
            for (int i = 0; i < BookDataGrid.SelectedItems.Count; i++)
            {
                Row.Remove(BookDataGrid.SelectedItems[i]);
            }
            BookDataGrid.ItemsSource = Row;
            stopwatch.Stop();
            MessageBox.Show("Total seconds: " + stopwatch.Elapsed.TotalSeconds.ToString());
            break;
    }
}

I also tried the following code, it was very slow. It took more than 10 minutes and I stopped the app. But List<> took about 16 seconds.
C#
var stopwatch = new System.Diagnostics.Stopwatch();
stopwatch.Start();
for (int i = BookDataGrid.SelectedItems.Count - 1; i >= 0; i--)
{
    BDV.Table.Rows.Remove(((DataRowView)BookDataGrid.SelectedItems[i]).Row);
}
BookDataGrid.ItemsSource = BDV.Table.DefaultView;
stopwatch.Stop();
MessageBox.Show("Total seconds: " + stopwatch.Elapsed.TotalSeconds.ToString());

I hope this is the most comprehensive solution for converting DataGrid.ItemsSource to DataTable, DataView or another type of data source.
Thank you for your attention.
