Hello,

I have a tree list view that contains a set of hierarchical data.  I have set up a filter to recreate the observable collection to filter out certain items from the tree.  The initial load works fine and the data is presented.  I can recreate the filter just fine.  As soon as the property changed event fires, I get a null reference exception from the tree list view.  I've tried replacing the data source collection with a new collection and I've tried just removing and adding filtered items back to the collection.  Both result in the exception below.

I Don't have a null item in my dataset - though there are some NULLs in the data itself which is fine when the tree is first loaded.

Just to append - If I clear the collection or assign a new empty collection to the bound data source, the error does not occur,

Further update:

I had to add and bind to an additional item in my data source collection.  Each item must implement an IsExpandable property.

This eliminates the null reference exception and bind to it.  Now there is a new problem...
What I want is to have the filtered list return to its state - so anything that is expanded should be expanded and anything that is not expanded, should not be...
                            <telerik:RadTreeListView.RowStyle>
                                <Style TargetType="telerik:TreeListViewRow">
                                     <Setter Property="IsSelected" Value="{Binding Path=IsSelected, Mode=TwoWay}"/>
                                    <Setter Property="IsExpanded" Value="{Binding Path=IsExpanded, Mode=TwoWay}"/>
                                    <Setter Property="IsExpandable" Value="{Binding Path=IsExpandable, Mode=TwoWay}" />
                                </Style>
                            </telerik:RadTreeListView.RowStyle>

My hierarchy shows up, but if I have the IsExpanded set to two way binding, the list does not show up.  If switch the IsExpanded to a OneWay binding, my filtered list appears with the items that I am expecting.

But then, none of the nodes are expanded - which is what I want.  I've stepped through it, and the only property that is being set is the IsExpanded - but the value is not changing, so its not being raised as a property change - If I change it to raise a property change even if the value remains unchanged (something I would not recommend), still no luck.

Am I missing something that I should provide?

Hi,

You could use a RowStyleSelector for the RadTreeListView:

public class CustomStyleSelector : StyleSelector
  {
      public override Style SelectStyle(object item, DependencyObject container)
      {
          if(container is TreeListViewRow)
          {
  
              if(item is Item)
              {
                  Style style = new Style() { TargetType = typeof(TreeListViewRow) };
  
                  style.Setters.Add(new Setter(TreeListViewRow.IsExpandedProperty, ((Item)item).IsExpanded));
  
                  return style;
              }
          }
          return base.SelectStyle(item, container);
      }
  }

Then set the change for the IsExpanded property when the RowIsExpandedChanged event is raised:

private void RadTreeListView_RowIsExpandedChanged(object sender, Telerik.Windows.Controls.GridView.RowEventArgs e)
{
    if (((Telerik.Windows.Controls.TreeListView.TreeListViewRow)(e.Row)).IsExpanded == false)
    {
        MessageBox.Show("You just collapsed row number: "+ (this.tlv_1.Items.IndexOf(e.Row.Item) + 1).ToString());
        ((Item)e.Row.Item).IsExpanded = false;
    }
    else
    {
        ((Item)e.Row.Item).IsExpanded = true;
    }
}

 I hope this helps.

All the best,
