    What is the idea behind this enum??? I don't get it. It simply duplicates System.Windows.Controls.SelectionMode. And what's even worse is that your controls are not consistent in using it, e.g. while SelectionMode in RadGridView uses System.Windows.Controls.SelectionMode, your RadListBox uses Telerik.Windows.Controls.SelectionMode. In my case this forces me to use a converter. It's not a big deal, but it's just inconsistent and superfluous.

    Hello Stephan,

    In the earliest versions of Silverlight the System.Windows.Controls.SelectionMode was not complete and since we share the same functionality and code as much as possible for Silverlight and WPF, we've created Telerik.Windows.Controls.SelectionMode in order to make them consistent.  That is why, currently some of RadControls for SIlverlight are using Telerik.Windows.Controls.SelectionMode, this includes RadListBox, RadTreeView. etc. At this stage we cannot alter it as this will cause a breaking change which is something we're always trying to avoid.

    I am sorry for any inconvenience caused.

    Regards,
