    We have just started working with Telerik Silverlight controls and we have placed a RadTreeView control within a custom control.

    The IsVirtualizing property of the RadTreeview is set to True.

    When we resize our control that contains the RadTreeView, the RadTreeView does not automatically display nodes in the RadTreeView that were previously not visible as expected.  The only way for me to get the RadTreeView nodes to automatically display is to move the RadTreeView scrollbar.  Is there a way to force the RadTreeView to update what is displayed progrmmatically?  Perhaps we don't have UI Virtualization set up correctly?  Are there other RadTreeView properties we need to set?

    I've tried binding the RadTreeView Height to the Height of the custom control and that doesn't work.

    I've attached a screenshot of the problem.

    Hi Chad,

    I was unable to reproduce the issue. Except IsVirtualizing="True", the other prerequisite for the virtualization to work is RadTreeView to be placed in a container that does not measure with infinity (ex. StackPanel). What I mean is that in the scenario bellow, virtualization will not work:

        <Button />
        <telerikNavigation:RadTreeView IsVirtualizing="True" />


                <RowDefinition Height="Auto" />
                <RowDefinition Height="*" />

            <Button />
            <telerikNavigation:RadTreeView IsVirtualizing="True"  Grid.Row="1"/>

    will have the same visual result, but virtualization will work.

    I've attached a sample project that contains a TreeView with 1000 items placed in a dock pane. Please have a look at it and let me know if you manage to reproduce the issue. I'd be glad to further assist you.

    On a side note, I'd like to inform you that we've just released an online tool that allows you to reduce the size of your Silverilght applications. For more information, please visit
