    When using the DataboundListBox in selection mode, tapping the left hand side of the control displays the selection check boxes (like in the mail app). However, unlike the mail app (and the LongListSelector in the SDK), the item that was semi tapped in order to show this isn't selected by default. 

    Is there a way to get this behaviour with the DataboundListBox?

    Hi Scott,

    Pasting here the support thread answer to your question:
    When we designed the CheckBoxes support in RadDataBoundListBox we opted for better flexibility and therefore we decided not to perform any additional actions upon checkbox activation. We exposed several events in return that allow you to customize the behavior according to your requirements. You can take a look at our online help here:

    You can basically use the IsCheckModeActiveChanged event and check the item that has been initially tapped to activate the mode. It is provided in the event arguments.

    Since we've received a request for automating this behavior previously, we will log this in our TODO list for future releases and will try to implement it out of the box.

    Let us know if you have additional questions.
    Have a suggestion or face a problem - you can use the Ideas & Feedback portal to submit ideas, feedback and vote for them.
