Scroll the selected item into view

Hi, I've found something on this subject but they are specific cases not simple as mine so I ask:

I have a grid where I programmatically add a record, the added record is then selected using the ViewModel Binding.

My Grid has:

ItemsSource = "{Binding MyElementsCollection}"
SelectedItem = "{Binding MySelectedItem}

When I set the selected item from code, It works perfectly except for the fact that if the selected item is not inside the visible part of the grid it remains invisible.

So, I wanted to know if there is a way to do something like:


thank you in advance

Hi Sabrina,

You can achieve your requirement by using the ProcessSelectedItemChanged method in the GridSelectionController class.This method handles the selection and you can able to view the selected item in the Grid.

You can customize the GridSelectionController class and set the instance of that customized GridSelectionControllerExt class to datagrid.SelectionController property.

this.datagrid.SelectionController = new GridSelectionControllerExt(datagrid); 

public class GridSelectionControllerExt : GridSelectionController


        public GridSelectionControllerExt(SfDataGrid datagrid)

            : base(datagrid)



        protected override void ProcessSelectedItemChanged(SelectionPropertyChangedHandlerArgs handle)



            if (handle.NewValue != null)





<Syncfusion:SfDataGrid x:Name="datagrid" 





                                       ItemsSource="{Binding OrderInfoCollection }"
                                       SelectedItem="{Binding MySelectedItem,Mode=TwoWay}">

Hi, this works nice, except one detail. The selected record is always the last row in visible area. Couldn't this be changed so it is the first row?

Hi Ondrej, 
Thanks for your update. 
SfDataGrid doesn't have direct support to achieve this requirement. However we can provide a workaround to achieve this by changing the RowIndex value passed to the ScrollInView method based on the number of visible rows. Please refer the following code example. 
Code example 
int rowIndex = this.CurrentCellManager.CurrentRowColumnIndex.RowIndex; 
int columnIndex = this.CurrentCellManager.CurrentRowColumnIndex.ColumnIndex; 
int scrollRowIndex = (rowIndex + this.DataGrid.GetVisualContainer().ScrollRows.LastBodyVisibleLineIndex - 1) <= this.DataGrid.GetVisualContainer().ScrollRows.LineCount ? (rowIndex + this.DataGrid.GetVisualContainer().ScrollRows.LastBodyVisibleLineIndex - 1) : 0; 
if (scrollRowIndex != 0) 
    this.DataGrid.ScrollInView(new RowColumnIndex(scrollRowIndex, columnIndex)); 
    this.DataGrid.ScrollInView(new RowColumnIndex(this.DataGrid.GetVisualContainer().ScrollRows.LineCount - 1, columnIndex)); 
Please let us know if the given solution doesn't meet your requirement.
