I've referred to the demo to persist user grid settings (sort orders, grouping, columns, etc.) and it works great!  Problem is...it only works when I load and unload the control where my grid is hosted.  How can I persist these grid settings when my application is closed (a user clicks the red X in the upper-right to close it down)?  Do you have an example of how to accomplish that...as I'm guessing I need some code in the Application.xaml file or its code-behind.

Thanks!

Hello Brian Swiger,

Our example for Save/Load settings shows how to save the settings when the Unloaded event the example is called but you are free to save the settings when the main windows is closing. For example, you can subscribe to the Closing event of the window, which will be called when the X button is clicked, and save the settings in the event handler:

<Window x:Class="RadGridView_WPF_2009_Q3_SP217.Window1"
    Title="Window1" Height="700" Width="600" Closing="Window_Closing">

private void Window_Closing(object sender, CancelEventArgs e)
{
    settings.SaveState();
}

Kind regards,
