I have buttons in a grid view which I am setting the click property. What I need to know is can I force the select row event before my method is called?  

<telerik:GridViewColumn>
	<telerik:GridViewColumn.CellTemplate>
		<DataTemplate>
                	<telerik:RadButton Content="Foo" Click="Foo"/>
		</DataTemplate>
	</telerik:GridViewColumn.CellTemplate>
</telerik:GridViewColumn>

Right now this will call foo prior to selecting the row, so the method is being executed using the wrong row.

I was able to add the below:
var selectRow = RadGridViewCommands.SelectCurrentUnit as RoutedUICommand;
            selectRow.Execute(nullthis.FooGrid);

In my code behind to get this to work. I am curious as to why the selected event is not triggered prior to the click event on the button? Seems like it would seem pretty standard that when clicking on a grid you always want the selection done prior to any other actions. I will need to put this in a hand full of spots when it should be part of the base control.

Hello Marc,

Glad  to hear you have managed to find a workaround.
Now on your question  - buttons in Silverlight tend to "eat" the mouse down events thus preventing the containing row to sense  the user mouse button action and set the selected item .  This comes form the Silverlight platform and there is not much we can do about it . So workarounds like yours should be applied.
