Indeed there is such issue - RadDataForm respects the currency and if the source collection is aware of the current item , RadDataForm will stick to it.
When you add new item , most probably it will not pass the currently applied filters. So the current item of the source collection would be null , therefore RadDataForm will show empty UI.
