Hi

I would like to avoid deselecting currently selected shape while clicking on the diagram.
When you click on the diagram, out of a shape, the currently selected shape is deselected.
I couldn't find a way to configure or do that.
Thanks for your help.

Cheers
Laurent Kempé

Hi Laurent,

 The code below uses the MouseLeftButtonDown event of the RadDiagram, checks whether the clicked element is the RadDiagram and if yes, prevents the selection:

public partial class MainWindow : Window
    {
        private bool shouldPreventSelection = false;
        public MainWindow()     
        {          
            InitializeComponent();
        }
 
        private void diagram_PreviewSelectionChanged_1(object sender, SelectionChangedEventArgs e)
        {
            if (this.shouldPreventSelection)
            {
                e.Handled = true;
                this.shouldPreventSelection = false;
            }
        }
 
        private void diagram_MouseLeftButtonDown_1(object sender, MouseButtonEventArgs e)
        {
            var element = this.diagram.InputHitTest(e.GetPosition(this));
            if( element != null && element.GetType() == typeof(DiagramSurface))
            {
                this.shouldPreventSelection = true;
            }
        }
    }
Let us know if the suggested approach is suitable for you.

Hello Laurent,

 This is ok if we don't use Rectangle Selection. Have you considered using it?  What is the expected behavior that you wish to achieve when using it ?

Hi Petar,

Thanks it works correctly after changing this line

            var element = rootDiagram.InputHitTest(e.GetPosition(rootDiagram));  //replacing the this

I don't know why I didn't found the PreviewSelectionChange and seen only the SelectionChange event. Maybe I was reading too much the doc which mention only Selectionchanged on http://www.telerik.com/help/wpf/raddiagrams-events-diagram.html and should have searched more in the code.

Never the less know it works the way I want, so thank you!

Cheers

Hi Laurent,

We're happy that the suggested solution works for you. Also, I'd like to thank you for notifying us about the documentation issue - we now added the PreviewSelectionChanged event description in the events article and the change will be reflected with the next upload of the online documentation.

I updated your Telerik points for this feedback.

All the best,
