    I have radtreeview control and when OpenFileDialog is shown on top of that control and an item is selected using double click, the OpenFileDialog gets closed which is the expected behavior as the file has been selected. But also the Itemclick event is fired on the treeviewitem which is exactly behind the point where the double click happened on the filedialog.


    Can you please let me know how to avoid the ItemClick event.

    Hello Apar,

    You have hit a know issue in the WPF framework - mouseup event fires on control behind OpenFileDialog when doubleclicking on a file.
    MSDN Forum - Stop Mouse Evtn from Firing..
    StackOverflow - Mouse left button up event and openfiledialog

    Generally, part of the issue at your side is that our ItemClick event is fired on Mouseup event of the RadTreeView, its not a typical click event to be raised after down + up on a single element. 

    There is know elegant solution for this, however, you can unsubscribe from ItemClick event before opening the OpenFileDialog and then subscribe after some interval (for example 500 milliseconds).
    You can find sample code below:
    DispatcherTimer timer;
    private void Button_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
               OpenFileDialog dialog = new OpenFileDialog();
               this.tree.ItemClick -= this.tree_ItemClick;
               timer = new DispatcherTimer();
               timer.Interval = new TimeSpan(0, 0, 0, 0, 500);
               timer.Tick +=timer_Tick;
           void timer_Tick(object sender, EventArgs e)
               this.tree.ItemClick += this.tree_ItemClick;
               timer.Tick -= this.timer_Tick;
           private void tree_ItemClick(object sender, Telerik.Windows.RadRoutedEventArgs e)

    I am using the RadBrowseEditor with a DialogType=OpenFileDialog (OFD) in Winforms. This gets displayed overtop of a RadListView control, and when I double click on a file in the OFD then a list view item underneath the OFD gets selected as well.

    I am looking for the correct events to perhaps set some Boolean or timer such that I know to ignore the selection changing in the list view control, but between the RadBrowseEditor, the OpenFileDialog window, and the RadListView events, I'm just not seeing how to implement a solution for this problem.
