    I am using a RadTreeView inside a MVVM Silverlight project. I am setting the IsSelected property in my viewmodel, but the TreeView does not automatically display (or brings to front) the selected item. If I expand the parent folder then it shows the item selected. How can I make this work?

    Hi Tolga,

    This is expected behavior of the RadTreeView. In order to "bring this item into view", you can bind the IsExpanded property of the RadTreeViewItems via ContainerBindings and set the corresponding boolean property in the ViewModel to true for all parent items of the selected one.
    Another solution uses the BringItemIntoView series of methods. For further info on this, you can check out this help article.
