    Hello Balaji,


    The Contacts demo as part of the Expression Blend is just a showcase. The mentioned part demonstrates how to animate DataGridRows on load. As you may see from the xaml code the animations are integrated in the default template of DataGridRow. The approach is applicable in Telerik RadGridView and its rows, however it will kill the performance of the grid. I would recommend you to keep the default behavior of this control.

    Well i did manage to get some transitions into grid while it was loading row.But you are right it makes grid extremely slow and the UI also becomes sluggish to click events and all.
