I have a grid with 2 subgrids. This hierachy is defined in the xaml with the ChildTableDefinitions property. The child grids have
grd.MaxHeight = double.PositiveInfinity;
in order to avoid a clutter of scrollbars. Also row virtualization has been turned off for as well the main grid as the child grids.

Now I'm implementing a refresh operation. During this, I want to reselect the item that was selected before the refresh was started (there is only one item selected in all these grids). I do this by expanding the appropriate rows until I reach the grid with the item to be selected. Then I set that grid's SelectedItem property.

So far so good. For obvious reasons I want to scroll the selected item back into view. When the selected row was in the main grid, I can just perform a
grd.ScrollIntoView(objSel);
But when I do this for a childgrid, nothing happens. I presume because the child grid doesn't have a scrollbar and as far as this grid is concerned, the selected row is in view. Also when I try
grdMain.ScrollIntoView(objSel);
nothing happens. I guess because objSel is not in the ItemsSource of the main grid (I didn't expect it to work, but I had to try). Also
grd.BringIntoView();
did not work out.

So I wonder what is a correct approach to scroll the selected item into view.

Thanks in advance,
