    I am evaluating the new ListView with kinetic scrolling and discovered a strange behavior when releasing the mouse after a kinetic scroll - the ItemMouseClick event is fired and the item is also selected. Is there some way to avoid this?

    Best Regards

    Hi Lars,

    Scary - We are doing much the same thing it seems, heres how I dealt with it temporarily:

    private Point _downXY ;
    private int _tolerance = 50;
    private void lstSelect_ItemMouseDown(object sender, ListViewItemMouseEventArgs e)
      // Store press detection
      _downXY = Cursor.Position;
      // Find object key
      var selectedView = (DataRowView)e.Item.Value;
      _selectedUserId = Convert.ToInt32(selectedView.Row.ItemArray[0]);
    private void lstSelect_ItemMouseUp(object sender, ListViewItemMouseEventArgs e)
      // Evaluate location
      var upXy = Cursor.Position;
      var xDiff = _downXY.X - upXy.X;
      var yDiff = _downXY.Y - upXy.Y;
      if (xDiff < 0)
        xDiff = -xDiff;
      if (yDiff < 0)
        yDiff = -yDiff;
      if (xDiff < _tolerance && yDiff < _tolerance)
        // Select

    Hope that helps.

    Hello Alex,

    Thanks for your reply and the suggested workaround fixes a part of the problem; I have more control over when to trigger a mouse click action, but the item (row) where the mouse is release is still being selected.

    Hello Lars,

    Thank you for writing.

    @Alex: Thank you for the community effort. 

    @Lars: Currently this is the default behavior of RadListView when kinetic scrolling is executed. However, your suggestion seems quite reasonable, and this is why I have added it to our PITS system as a feature request, which we will implement in a future release. Please follow this link to add your vote for this request and increase its priority. 

    I have updated your Telerik points for this suggestion.

    Should you have any other questions, do not hesitate to contact us.

    Kind regards,
    the Telerik team
