I currently have a gridview that is bound to a collection of objects. These objects have a property that decides whether they should be selected or not.

Now, I know it is not possible to bind a SelectColum to a property, because it is internally bound to the IsSelected row property, as I found in the following thread:

But now my question is this: Is it possible to bind the IsSelected property of the row, to a property on the underlying data-object for the row. (And how to do this?)


SelectColumn in grid -------(Bound to)-----> IsSelected property on row-object ------(Bound to)------> Property of data-object on which row is based.

I've been trying to do this today, with little or no success. Maybe someone could tell me if it's even possible?

   Kind regards,

Hello Neal Robben,

The easiest way to do that is to use the RowLoaded event to setup a binding between the IsSelected property of a row and its data item. 

void playersGrid_RowLoaded(object sender, Telerik.Windows.Controls.GridView.RowLoadedEventArgs e)
    var row = e.Row as GridViewRow;
    if (row == null)
    var selectedBinding = new Binding("Selected");
    selectedBinding.Source = row.Item;
    selectedBinding.Mode = BindingMode.TwoWay;
    row.SetBinding(GridViewRow.IsSelectedProperty, selectedBinding);

All the best,

the Telerik team
