Hi,

A little help with this problem would be great.

I have a RadTreeView as follows

<Controls:RadTreeView  
            Name="TreeView"
            IsVirtualizing="True"
            ItemTemplate="{StaticResource NodeTemplate}"
            ItemsSource="{Binding Tree}">
</Controls:RadTreeView>


with a hierarchical data template as follows

<telerik:HierarchicalDataTemplate x:Key="NodeTemplate" ItemsSource="{Binding Children}" telerik:ContainerBinding.ContainerBindings="{StaticResource ContainerBindings}">
    <MyTemplateClass ItemText="{Binding Name}" />
</telerik:HierarchicalDataTemplate>


and I am also binding the IsExpanded property to the datacontext of MyTemplateClass using container bindings as follows

<telerik:ContainerBindingCollection x:Key="ContainerBindings">
    <telerik:ContainerBinding PropertyName="IsExpanded" Binding="{Binding Expanded, Mode=TwoWay}" />
</telerik:ContainerBindingCollection>


I have an item X, which has a set 10 items inside it, and one of them, "Y", has many items inside it.  When I expand X, Y appears to expand and then unexpand, creating a very stuttered animation.  I have placed a converter on the container binding and have found that Y indeed is first set to true and then to false.  I have also debugged the property setter in the datacontext for MyTemplateClass and found that the binding source is never set to true, it remains false.

I should also say that if I turn virtualising off then the problem goes away, the animation is smooth and Y is not expanded.

I would like to keep Y false so that it does not expand when I expand X but cannot find where to make this setting.  Should I be looking to edit a template or should I try to change it in the converter or something else?

Hope this makes sense.

Thanks in advance,
Chris

Hi Petar,

Thanks for your reply.  http://www.sendspace.com/file/kdntkq is a solution reproducing the problem.  If you expand node 5 you will hopefully see the problem.

I have tried with both these assemblies..

Telerik.Windows.Controls 2010.2.924.1040
Telerik.Windows.Controls.Navigation 2010.2.924.1040

...and these assemblies...

Telerik.Windows.Controls 2010.3.1110.1040
Telerik.Windows.Controls.Navigation 2010.3.1110.1040

...but the problem occurs with both.

I hope this enough to work with.

Regards,
Chris

Hi Chris,

I managed to view this virtualization issue. The good news is that is resolved from the Q3 2010 SP1 (1314) and you can examine this in the attached solution. I've also noticed that your root collection is List which is bad practice. You better replace it with ObservableCollection. Feel free to ask if you need more info.

Kind regards,

Hi Petar,

Thanks for the solution.  It works perfectly with the new binaries - just downloaded 2011.1 :)
