I'm trying out my WPF app on the tablet I received at the last MS Build conference with the Windows 8 Consumer Preview.

The one big usability enhancement I noticed that works very well in all the windows controls / applications is the finger can be used to scroll the contents up and down (like windows explorer, anything with a scroll-able list).

I noticed my Telerik controls do not do this -- they always fire selection events and don't scroll up and down.

Is there any particular events I should be or should not be capturing for the GridView to act as expected?

Thanks -- Chad

p.s. you can see the same behavior here: http://demos.telerik.com/silverlight/#GridView/UIVirtualization

Hi Chad ,

We are already working on providing touch friendly  UI capabilities  for RadGridView.
Meanwhile you may check this blogpost.It is  an easy way to acomplish such behavior with the current version of RadGridView.

Hey Pavel - has any of this been addressed in the latest releases? Win8 is upon us!

Hi Chad ,

No the latest releases still do not contain the touch related logic. As we are implementing the touch capabilities not only for RadGridView but for most of the controls in the suite, we need some more time to dedicate to QA before releasing the features.
