sfDataGrid Scroll Trouble

I have problems with understanding syncfusion library for wpf. More specifically, it's about sfDataGrid control. This control is inside standard WPF ScrollView control. So, the problem is, whenever I hover sfDataGrid, it takes scroll events and the scroll itself is not working. So what's the problem? What's the best solution?

Hi Maxim,
Thank you for using Syncfusion Products.
We have analyzed your query. SfDataGrid has its own ScrollViewer. So it is not recommended to load the SfDataGrid inside the ScrollViewer as it provides infinite size to its children which leads to lose of UI virtualization. While loading SfDataGrid inside ScrollViewer, the SfDataGrid’s ScollViewer gets disabled. However, you can overcome this by setting the height of SfDataGrid while loading inside the ScollViewer.

Code Example:


     <Syncfusion:SfDataGrid x:Name="dataGrid"



                            ItemsSource="{Binding Source}" />

Hi Alvin Chen,

Your requirement can be achieved by setting the true value for the CanMaintainScrollPosition property in SfDataGrid. Please refer to the below code snippet,

<syncfusion:SfDataGrid x:Name="sfDataGrid"

ItemsSource="{Binding Orders}"

CanMaintainScrollPosition="True" />

Please let us know if you have any concerns about this.
