    We have bound the selected item to a property in the view model, but changing the selected item in the view model doesn't change the expanded (collapsed) tree nodes. On a callback handler we set the Nodes property and the SelectedNode property, the tree view list is bound correctly but what we are looking for is a way to expand the tree to show and focus the selected item. Is it possible?

    <RadTreeListView ItemsSource="{Binding Nodes}" SelectedItem="{Binding SelectedNode}" />

    public class ViewModel
      //Properties raise property changed event
      public IEnumerable<Node> Nodes { get; set; }
      public Node SelectedNode { get; set; }
      private void LoadComplete(Response response)
        this.Nodes = response.Nodes;
        this.SelectedNode = response.SelectedNode;

    Hello Claudia Lienert,

     Unfortunately, we are not able to implement this functionality inside the RadTreeListView, as it is very model-specific. Please find attached a solution that achieves this using ViewModels and custom code-behind.

    To test it, expand the RadTreeView to the right and select the inner-most node. The RadTreeListView to the left should expand and select the proper node.
