I'm attaching a sample project where RadGridView's IsSynchronizedWithCurrentItem property is working as expected. Could you please have a look at it and let me know if I'm missing something important? Providing more details about the exact setup at your end would definitely be of help in finding a solution.
Thank you in advance for your cooperation on the matter.
