    I'm trying to apply row styles to my RadTreeListView depending on the hierarchy level of the row. Basically, I want all top level rows to be have a bold font weight, but all other rows to be normal. Below is the StyleSelector I am using:

    public class RowStyleSelector : StyleSelector
        public Style TopLevelRowStyle { getset; }
        public Style DetailRowStyle { getset; }

        public override Style SelectStyle(object item, DependencyObject container)
            if (container.GetType() == typeof(TreeListViewRow))
                TreeListViewRow row = (TreeListViewRow)container;

                if (row.Level == 0)
                    return TopLevelRowStyle;
                    return DetailRowStyle;
             return DetailRowStyle;

    However, I get a NullReferenceException when trying to access the Level property of the TreeListViewRow. This is the stack trace:

    {System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

       at System.Windows.FrameworkElement.MeasureOverride(IntPtr nativeTarget, Single inWidth, Single inHeight, Single& outWidth, Single& outHeight)}

    What am I doing wrong?

    Hello Andrew,

    This is probably a bug and I have logged it in our public issue tracking system. You can check its status here.

    As a workaround, you can create a Level property of your business object and select the style based on its value. The first parameter of the SelectStyle method is your business object.

    I have updated your Telerik points.

    Best wishes,
