    I'm using RadTreeLiestView with SelectionMode property set to Multiple and SelectionUnit property set to Cell. I've noticed that when user expands or collapse some node, selection is lost, that's after a node expand/collapse SelectedCells property on TreeListView is empty.

    I'm providing users with a toggle button, when checked, TreeListView enters in a "selection model", that's settiing SelecctionMode to Multipe and SelectionUnit to Cell, when unchecked, SelectionMode is set to "Single" and SelectionUnit is set to FullRow. Users would like to collapse/expand node to locate those cell they want to select.

    Is there any way to accomplish this requirement?

    Hi Daní,

    Unfortunately at the moment there is not way to change this behavior. We will try to improve this in the future but right now I cannot share any specifics.  

    Kind regards,

    Hi Milan,

    Thanks for your response. I've tried to develop a behavior for the RadTreeListView. This behaviors subscribes to RowIsExpandedChanging and RowIsExpandedChanged events. When first event is handled, this behavior stores the current selected cells (I'm working with SelectionUnit property set to Cell). Then when RowIsExpandedChanged event is handles, the behavior restores cell selected with the stored values. Right now this behavior is not working as I expected, when I collapse a row (node) the behavior can keep selected those cells not present in collapse node hierarchy, but when expanding the row again, previously selected cells in the row hierarchy are not longer selected, RadTreeListView has lost them.

    Any Idea?
