Hi,

I am using a radsplitbutton to display a large number of objects in the dropdown in an itemscontrol. The itemscontrol has virtualization on it. When I click the button to open the dropdown it is extremely slow to open. Is there a way to speed up the opening of the dropdown with a large number of objects or must I wait even with virtualization on the itemscontrol?

Hello Laura Edwards,

Basically when an ItemsControl is virtualized, it only realizes those items that are in its viewport. So if you limit the size of the veiwport, the number of realized items will be limited.

You can set the DropDownHeight property to a relatively small height so that your virtualized ItemsControl will only realize the items that can be displayed inside this DropDownHeight. This way you will limit the time it takes for the items to realized thus speeding up the opening of the DropDownContent. For example:
<telerik:RadSplitButton HorizontalAlignment="Center"
                        VerticalAlignment="Center"
                        Content="{Binding Content}"
                        DropDownContent="{Binding Items}"
                        DropDownHeight="100">
    <telerik:RadSplitButton.DropDownContentTemplate>
        <DataTemplate>
            <telerik:RadTreeView x:Name="myTreeView" Loaded="myTreeView_Loaded"
                                    ItemsSource="{Binding}"
                                    IsVirtualizing="True">
                <telerik:RadTreeView.ItemTemplate>
                    <telerik:HierarchicalDataTemplate ItemsSource="{Binding Children}">
                        <TextBlock Text="{Binding Header}" />
                    </telerik:HierarchicalDataTemplate>
                </telerik:RadTreeView.ItemTemplate>
            </telerik:RadTreeView>
        </DataTemplate>
    </telerik:RadSplitButton.DropDownContentTemplate>
</telerik:RadSplitButton>

Give this a try and let us know if it works for you.

All the best,
