Setting selected node


In my application I have 2 GridTree controls. When the application launches it reads some data and depending on that populates the first grid and based on the selected value the second one's contents are loaded. 

Is it possible to set the selected row of a grid programmatically on start? I set SelectedNode value but the row doesn't appear to be selected.

Hi Volkan,

Thank you for contacting Syncfusion Support.

We have analyzed your query. You can achieve your requirement “set the selected row of a grid programmatically on initially” like the below code example. In this code example, we have added the corresponding node to TreeGrid.InternalGrid.SelectedNodes and the IsSelected property of the particular node is set to true.

Code Example [C#]:




            this.treeGrid.Loaded += treeGrid_Loaded;


void treeGrid_Loaded(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)


            var Node = treeGrid.InternalGrid.Nodes.FirstOrDefault(node => (node.Item as EmployeeInfo).EmpID == 1005);

            if (Node == null)


            Node.IsSelected = true;



We have prepared a sample as per your requirement and you can download sample from the below location,
