    Dear Telerik,

    we created an Application in Xamarin.Form.
    Our customer asked us to make besides an android version, a Windows 10 desktop version.

    We have some problems using the mouse (double click and swipe behavior) instead of touch.
    In general it is hard to find the right spot where the controls recognize a mouse-action.

    1)  RadTreeView
    a) how to select a treeitem (RadTreeView) with double click  ?
    b) is it possible to highlight the selected row ?(in this case we could add an OK and Cancel button on the bottom of the page)


    2) RadListView

    a) the buttons (delete , edit) in ItemSwipeContentTemplate are only accessible if the mouse-pointer is in the upper-left corner.
    Is it possible to swipe with the mouse when clicked on cell, now matter where ?

    b) double click on a cell is only registered when click some regions.


    Could you help us out ?

    Hello Henry,

    I will go straight to your questions:

    1. RadTreeView

    In general, RadTreeView does not provide the conception for selection (selected item, selected index, etc). I would suggest you enable CheckBoxes support instead in order to highlight certain items and implement some logic on them.  Basically, we've designed the control in a way it is suitable for using on a mobile device.

    2. RadListView

    a) I didn't manage to reproduce this behavior, can you send me the ListView definition, so I could research it further?

    b) I am afraid that the manipulation logic for swipe, tap and other is implemented on RadListViewItem and is internal, so basically it cannot be overridden.  The swipe is invoked through mouse down and mouse move actions.
     As to the last question about double-click - could you elaborate more on this? Some sample code would be of great help as well.

    I am looking forward to your reply.
