I am using the RadGridView for a data entry screen (using MVVM), the last row is always empty and when the user starts to enter data into it a new row is added to the bottom on the list.  My issue is that once the itemSource is updated focus is taken out of the control and put into no mans land, making smooth data entry impossible.

The attached code is a cut down version of what i am doing and displays the same problem of lossing focus when the itemSource is updated.

XAML File
<Window x:Class="TelerikExample.MainWindow"
Title="MainWindow" Height="350" Width="525">
<Window.Resources>
<DataTemplate x:Key="dtFirstName">
<TextBox Text="{Binding Path=FirstName, UpdateSourceTrigger=PropertyChanged, NotifyOnSourceUpdated=True}" />
</DataTemplate>
<DataTemplate x:Key="dtSecondName">
<TextBox Text="{Binding Path=SecondName, UpdateSourceTrigger=PropertyChanged, NotifyOnSourceUpdated=True}" />
</DataTemplate>
</Window.Resources>
<Grid>
<Grid.RowDefinitions>
<RowDefinition Height="*" />
</Grid.RowDefinitions>
<telerik:RadGridView Grid.Row="1"
CanUserDeleteRows="False"
CanUserInsertRows="False"
CanUserSortColumns="False"
ShowGroupPanel="False"
AutoGeneratingColumn="RadGridView_AutoGeneratingColumn"
ItemsSource="{Binding Rows}"
RowIndicatorVisibility="Collapsed"
AlternateRowBackground="White"
AlternationCount="2"
Background="AliceBlue"
EditTriggers="None"
HorizontalGridLinesBrush="SlateGray"
SelectionMode="Single"
SelectionUnit="FullRow"
ShowColumnHeaders="True"
IsFilteringAllowed="False"
VerticalGridLinesBrush="Transparent">
</telerik:RadGridView>
</Grid>
</Window>

View model file

    using System;
    using System.Collections.Generic;
    using System.Linq;
    using System.Text;
    using System.ComponentModel;
    using System.Dynamic;
    using System.Collections.ObjectModel;

            row.Add("FirstName", string.Empty);
            row.Add("SecondName", string.Empty);
            row.Add("ViewModel", this);
 
            ((INotifyPropertyChanged)row).PropertyChanged += new PropertyChangedEventHandler(TelerikExample.PropertyChanged.Row_PropertyChanged);
 
            _rows.Add(row);
        }
 
        public void CheckForNewRow()
        {
 
            IDictionary<string, Object> lastRow = _rows.Last() as IDictionary<string, Object>;
 
            if (((string)lastRow["FirstName"]) != string.Empty || ((string)lastRow["SecondName"]) != string.Empty)
            {
                //Add new row               
                var row = new ExpandoObject() as IDictionary<string, Object>;
 
                row.Add("FirstName", string.Empty);
                row.Add("SecondName", string.Empty);
                row.Add("ViewModel", this);
 
                ((INotifyPropertyChanged)row).PropertyChanged += new PropertyChangedEventHandler(TelerikExample.PropertyChanged.Row_PropertyChanged);
 
                this.Rows.Add(row);
            }
        }
 
        public ObservableCollection<dynamic> Rows
        {
            get
            {
                return _rows;
            }
            set
            {
                if (_rows != value)
                {
                    _rows = value;
                    OnPropertyChanged("Rows");
                }
            }
 
        }
    }
}

Property changed event

namespace TelerikExample
{
    using System;
    using System.Collections.Generic;
    using System.Linq;
    using System.Text;
    using System.ComponentModel;
    using System.Dynamic;
 
    public class PropertyChanged
    {
        public static void Row_PropertyChanged(object sender, PropertyChangedEventArgs e)
        {
            object value;
            ((IDictionary<string, Object>)sender).TryGetValue("ViewModel", out value);
            GridViewModel vm = (GridViewModel)value;
 
            vm.CheckForNewRow();
        }
    }
}

So my question is is there a way in which when the itemSource is updated focus isn't lost from the textbox.

Hi,

 Indeed, this would be the expected behaviour. You could set the GridView back in edit mode with this code:

this.myGridView.BeginEdit();
All the best,
