    IMHO, when in Split Mode and Multiselect is enabled, selecting an additional Item in one of the views of the grid should not scroll the other view. The current behaviour, where the last selected item is scrolled into view on both views leads the idea of a split view ad absurdum ...

    Hello erwin,

    We know about this limitation. We will reconsider the behavior in Split View mode of the RadGridView in one of the next releases.

    All the best,

    Hello Svett,

    Thanks for answering.

    So what's the intended purpose of the split view in the current release?
    Just to be able to tick a feature when doing side-by-side comparisons with other components?

    The 2010 Q2 release build was one of the worst versions of the controls I saw so far, in my case completely unusable until SP2.
    Struggling with the designer for basic stuff such as anchoring, the grid crashing, documentation missing and/or misleading, etc.
    I would really appreciate more stability within the product.
    What's the use of half-baked new features like the current Split View appart from introducing new bugs?

    Regards
    Erwin

    Hi erwin,

    Thank you for your feedback.

    The customers' opinion has always been important for us. When we are designing and planning the new features, we always consider our customers' suggestions and opinion. The major refactoring of the RadGridView control (Q2 2010) included many architecture changes supposed to act as a base for the new features introduced in Q2 2010 and for the new features that we are going to implement for our future versions. However, the new architecture brought some issues that our tests did not detect accordingly. We addressed these issues and increased the number of tests, hence the RadGridView code base coverage.
     
    Presently, the split view shows a separated table elements which have a common data source. They synchronize each other after each data operation. In the future we will consider possibility to change the current row without affecting the other table element.

    Hello,

    We tried to use the split view as it seemed to work like Excel cell locking feature. The grid we intend to split for easier data viewing has over 100 columns which is why we want to see the first column and one of the normally located out of field of view. We noticed that the feature synchronizes active cell in both parts which causes scrolling with arrow brings the active cell into view which consequently causes desired column on the other grid becomes invisible.

     

    Is there a way not to synchroinize active columns in both views?

    Thanks

    Wojciech

    Hi Wojciech,

    Thank you for writing.

    The grid exposes the SynchronizeCurrentRowInSplitMode property and you can set it to falsehttps://docs.telerik.com/devtools/winforms/controls/gridview/split-view. I believe, however, that the Pinned Columns feature in RadGridView would fit better in your local setup. The feature allows individual columns to be anchored to the left or right of the grid and they will be always visible no matter how many columns are added to the grid. You can check this article for more information: https://docs.telerik.com/devtools/winforms/controls/gridview/columns/pinning-and-unpinning-columns.

    I hope this will help. Let me know if you need further assistance.

    Regards,
    Hristo

    You are right, pinning rows will provide much more flexibility in our case. Thank you.
