I am setting a list of two items to the RadListPicker ItemsSource (set in the Loaded event):

   RadAreaCodePicker.ItemsSource = areaCodes.Select(s => s.AreaCode);


Debugging shows the SelectionChanged event firing with the index set to 0 (first item in the list). This causes the item to be processed which I don't want to do.

The next statement I set the selected item to the one I want as the default. If it it other than item 0, the SelectionChanged fires again.

   RadAreaCodePicker.SelectedItem = areaCode;


Xaml:

 

<telerikInput:RadListPicker Height="72" HorizontalAlignment="Right" Margin="0,35,322,0" Name="RadAreaCodePicker" VerticalAlignment="Top" Width="65" FontWeight="Bold" FontSize="30" SelectionChanged="RadAreaCodePicker_SelectionChanged" />

 


Thanks,
Gary Davis

Hi Gary Davis,

 Thank you for writing.

You can easily skip the processing of the event by unsubscribing from selection changed, setting the new items source, setting the correct selected item and then resubscribing to the event. RadListPicker selects the first item when a new data source is set and this behavior is by design, RadListPicker does not support null selection.

Please write again if you need further assistance.

Kind regards,
Victor

Hi Victor, how would I go about unsubscribing from the event? I have this in my code, but it doesn't seem to be working:

radListPicker.SelectionChanged -= radListPicker_SelectionChanged;
radListPicker.ItemsSource = possibleValuesString;
radListPicker.SelectedIndex = 4;
radListPicker.SelectionChanged += radListPicker_SelectionChanged;

private void radListPicker_SelectionChanged(object sender, SelectionChangedEventArgs e)
{
    Prompt.Visibility = Visibility.Visible;
}

I only want the Prompt to be visible once I select an item. Special note: I have the listpicker in a PanoramaItem and always launch it with isExpanded=true. I want the user to select an option, after which the prompt should appear.

Hello Gary,

Please explain what you mean by "it doesn't seem to be working". Is your selection changed handler called immediately after resubscribing? If so, you can delay the event subscription by using Dispatcher.BeginInvoke().
You have to subscribe to the selection changed event inside the BeginInvoke callback.

Kind regards,
Victor

Not sure how to use Dispatcher.Invoke(). Can you please reply with a code sample?

And FIVE DAYS to respond to a query?

Why does it select the first item when the datasource is set (or even the collection is changed)? This is really strange
