Hi,

Is there a way to disable the auto selection of the first row of the grid.

I want nothing to be selected when the user see the grid the first time.

Thanks in advance

Hi Anton,

 You need to set the IsSynchronizedWithCurrenItem property on the RadGridView to False.

Thanks for this reply.  It solves my immediate problem.

However, what are the consequences of this for the following scenario?

If I have a button on each row, and I need to be able to detect the row/item associated with the particular button clicked, I have code like this in the button's click event:

GridViewRow row = (sender as UIElement).ParentOfType<GridViewRow>();
row.IsSelected;
// Is one of these better?
// myGridView.SelectedItem = row.Item;
// myGridView.CurrentItem = row.Item;

I'm currently using the first (IsSelected) option, per sample code provided to solve the scenario described, but I'm thinking that won't work any more with this synchronization turned off.

I ultimately just need to get the selected or current item (the item associated with the button/row) bound to a property in my ViewModel.  Would either of the last two lines work if I just bind their respective GridView property (SelectedItem vs. CurrentItem)?

Hello Daniel Billingsley,

 Here's a bit more info on IsSynchronizedWithCurrentItem.

All the best,
