I'm using a SfDataGrid control with this configuration

dataGrid.SelectionMode = GridSelectionMode.Multiple;
dataGrid.SelectionUnit = GridSelectionUnit.Row;

I'm trying to select some rows of the grid when the user push a button (the grid is on screen). I do this:

dataGrid.SelectedItems.Add( myItemSourceItem );
dataGrid.SelectedItems.Add( myItemSourceItem2 );

Where myItemSourceItem and myItemSourceItem2, are contained in ItemsSource.

The problem is that de rows than not seems to be selected visualy.

However the dataGrid.SelectAll() methods works properly and select all rows as aspected. Am I forgetting something?

Thanks in advance!

Hi Benito,

Thank you for using Syncfusion products.

We analyzed your reported issue and defined the same SfDataGrid control configuration which you have shared. You can add the items into selecteditems list and you can reflect that selection in visual also. We are unable to replicate the issue “Selection is not reflected in view when adding the items in SelectedItem list” as you reported and please share the Essential studio product version which you are using currently.

Please find the code snippet as follows :

Code Snippet:

private void Button_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)


var viewModel = sfDataGrid.DataContext as ViewModel;

var selectedItem = viewModel.OrderDetails[1];

var secondItem = viewModel.OrderDetails[4];



<syncfusion:SfDataGrid x:Name="sfDataGrid"



ItemsSource="{Binding OrderDetails}">

We have prepared a sample for your requirement and you can download the sample from the following location:

Sample Link: SfDataGrid.zip

Please check the attached sample and kindly let us know if you require any further assistance.

Sorry, I just try this morning the issue and works properly. We were using an old version of Essential Studio and all works fine now.

Thank you very much for your attention, your support is always appreciated.
