    I have a GridView whose ItemsSource is bound to an ICollectionView. This GridView has a child GridView whose ItemsSource is bound to a property of currently selected item of the main GridView.

    This all works fine, however, when ever ICollectionView of the main GridView is refreshed the child GridView is also refreshed so it loses it current scroll position and item selection.

    Any ideas on how to prevent the child GridView from refreshing when main GridView ItemsSource is refreshed?

    Hello Dean,

    The described behavior is expected. When the ICollectionView is refreshed, the whole view is recreated. The GridView does not save any settings for the RowDetails, because there is no way to know with what they are filled with. 

    A possible way to keep the scroll position and the item selection, is to update only the individual item, and not refresh the whole ICollectionView.

    I attached an example of what I have in mind. In the sample project expand the first item and select one of its RowDetail items. Then press the button on the bottom to change the Name property of the parent row.
