    I've found very strange behavior.

    A simple project contains the window with RadGridView. ItemsSource is binded to ViewModel.Rows where Rows is ObservableCollection.

    I fill rows inside Window Loaded event.

    RadGridView doen't updated if I don't use Rows.Clear() before Rows.Add().

    Can you explain this?


    Here is xaml:

    01.<Window x:Class="TelerikWpfApp1.MainWindow"
    04.        xmlns:telerik=""
    05.        xmlns:local="clr-namespace:TelerikWpfApp1"
    06.        Loaded="Window_Loaded">
    07.    <Window.Resources>
    08.        <local:ViewModel x:Key="vm"/>
    09.    </Window.Resources>
    10.    <Grid DataContext="{Binding Mode=OneWay, Source={StaticResource vm}}">
    11.        <telerik:RadGridView ItemsSource="{Binding Rows}" />
    12.    </Grid>


    And code behind:

    01.using System.Collections.ObjectModel;
    02.using System.Windows;
    04.namespace TelerikWpfApp1
    06.    public partial class MainWindow : Window
    07.    {
    08.        public MainWindow()
    09.        {
    10.            InitializeComponent();
    11.        }
    13.        private void Window_Loaded(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
    14.        {
    15.            var rows = ((ViewModel)FindResource("vm")).Rows;
    16.            // to make it work uncomment the next row
    17.            //rows.Clear();
    18.            rows.Add(new Row { Name = "Name1", Column1 = "value1_1" });
    19.            rows.Add(new Row { Name = "Name2", Column1 = "value2_1" });
    20.        }
    21.    }
    23.    class Row
    24.    {
    25.        public string Name { get; set; }
    26.        public string Column1 { get; set; }
    27.    }
    29.    class ViewModel
    30.    {
    31.        public ObservableCollection<Row> Rows { get; } = new ObservableCollection<Row>();
    32.    }

    Generally, when a CollectionChanged event is raised, the virtualizing panel that manages the creation a visualization of rows invokes InvalidateMeasure, so that it can respect the new changes. There are several different subscriptions to this event in RadGridView's internal logic and at the time when the items are added (Loaded event), only the Reset action events are properly handled (Clear uses Reset). In my opinion, this behavior can be treated as a minor bug. However, it seems that this scenario works fine when GroupRenderMode is set to Flat. Basically, setting this property switches RadGridView to use an alternative UI virtualziation algorithm. Since it is the recommended alternative (it is newer and better polished) I would suggest that you give it a try. Can you please confirm whether using it fits your needs?
