    I am trying to set different row heights on a row depending on a value in the underlying data.

    So far I have worked out I can do the following...

    var rows = rgv.ChildrenOfType<GridViewRow>();

    int counter = 0;

    foreach (GridViewRow gridViewRow in rows)
        gridViewRow.Height = 20.0 + counter;
        counter += 10;

    This will set each row height to be 10 greater than its predecessor. The issue with this method is that the datagrid seems to calculate the height of the "rowspanel" based on the standard rowheight property and does not draw a vertical scroll bar, and also draws the horizontal scroll bar off the bottom of the visible area where it is not accessible.

    My questions are is there a better way to achieve what I want? Maybe apply a style to the row whose height is bound to a property in the underlying data? Or is there some method I can call to "refresh" the datagrid to make it draw the horizontal scroll bar in the correct place and detect it needs to draw a vertical scroll bar.

    Hi Andy,

    It seems you work with the visual elements, i.e. GridViewRows in your solution and this approach has some flaws. 
    I should note that RadGridView is a virtualized control and as such, due to the UI Virtualization, if the row is not in the View port, then there will not be a GridviewRow realized for displaying the respective Item. When the virtualization of RadGridView is turned on (which is by default), its elements are created when they should be brought into view. You can take a look at this article for a reference on UI Virtualization.

    You can try applying a RowStyleSelector instead. Still please keep in mind that RadGridView will work better in matters of performance and scrolling if all the rows have the default height.
