    When i set AutoGenerateFields="True" and using no DataTemplate it works. After i set AutoGenerateFields="False" and using the Templates it does not work.


    01.<DataTemplate x:Key="WriteTemplate">
    02.                <Grid>
    03.                    <Grid.ColumnDefinitions>
    04.                        <ColumnDefinition Width="150"></ColumnDefinition>
    05.                        <ColumnDefinition Width="*"></ColumnDefinition>
    06.                    </Grid.ColumnDefinitions>
    07.                    <Grid.RowDefinitions>
    08.                        <RowDefinition Height="35"></RowDefinition>
    09.                        <RowDefinition Height="35"></RowDefinition>
    10.                        <RowDefinition Height="35"></RowDefinition>
    11.                        <RowDefinition Height="35"></RowDefinition>
    12.                        <RowDefinition Height="35"></RowDefinition>
    13.                    </Grid.RowDefinitions>
    14.                    <Label Grid.Row="0" Grid.Column ="0" Margin="0,5,0,0">Katalogeintrag:</Label>
    15.                    <Label Grid.Row="1" Grid.Column ="0" Margin="0,5,0,0">Katalogwert:</Label>
    16.                    <Label Grid.Row="2" Grid.Column ="0" Margin="0,5,0,0">Gültig ab:</Label>
    17.                    <Label Grid.Row="3" Grid.Column ="0" Margin="0,5,0,0">Gültig bis:</Label>
    18.                    <Label Grid.Row="4" Grid.Column ="0" Margin="0,5,0,0">Gesperrt:</Label>
    19.                    <telerik:DataFormDataField Grid.Row="0" Grid.Column ="1" DataMemberBinding="{Binding Name , Mode=TwoWay}" HorizontalAlignment="Stretch" LabelPosition="Above" Mode="Edit" Margin="0,-22,0,0"/>
    20.                    <telerik:DataFormDataField Grid.Row="1" Grid.Column ="1" DataMemberBinding="{Binding Value , Mode=TwoWay}" HorizontalAlignment="Stretch" LabelPosition="Above" Margin="0,-22,0,0"/>
    21.                    <telerik:DataFormDateField Grid.Row="2" Grid.Column ="1" DataMemberBinding="{Binding Start , Mode=TwoWay}" HorizontalAlignment="Stretch" LabelPosition="Above" Margin="0,-22,0,0"/>
    22.                    <telerik:DataFormDateField Grid.Row="3" Grid.Column ="1" DataMemberBinding="{Binding End , Mode=TwoWay}" HorizontalAlignment="Stretch" LabelPosition="Above" Margin="0,-22,0,0"/>
    23.                    <telerik:DataFormCheckBoxField Grid.Row="4" Grid.Column ="1" DataMemberBinding="{Binding Locked , Mode=TwoWay}" HorizontalAlignment="Stretch" LabelPosition="Above" Margin="0,-22,0,0"/>
    24.               </Grid>
    25.            </DataTemplate>

    Hello Harald,

    The behavior you're experiencing is due to the fact that the negative margins that have been set for the RadDataForm fields contradict with the fixed heights you have set for your RowDefinitions' heights.
    Here's an example of how to define your DataTemplate, so that it can correctly focus the fields:

    <DataTemplate x:Key="WriteTemplate">
        <StackPanel Orientation="Vertical">
            <telerik:DataFormDataField Label="Name" DataMemberBinding="{Binding Name , Mode=TwoWay}"/>
            <telerik:DataFormDataField Label="Number" DataMemberBinding="{Binding Number , Mode=TwoWay}" />
            <telerik:DataFormDateField Label="Position" DataMemberBinding="{Binding Position , Mode=TwoWay}" />
            <telerik:DataFormDateField Label="Country" DataMemberBinding="{Binding Country , Mode=TwoWay}" />

    If you would, however, like to go with the approach you have so far, you will need to either remove the negative margins or increase the RowDefinitions' heights so that they can fit the RadDataForm fields.

    I hope this solves your issue. Do let me know how this goes.
