SfDataGrid - AutoScroll and AutoEdit


I am trying to do the following:
  • I have a SfDataGrid bound to a ObservableCollection<>
  • When the user clicks a button outside of the SfDataGrid I append a new item at the end of the Collection
  • The SfDataGrid should scroll automaticaly to the last row (representing the added item)
  • The SfDataGrid should start EditMode for this row

I have got the Scrolling to work by using the DataContextChanged event and the CollectionChanged event - but this is a very complex and ugly Code for such a simple Problem.

Do you have a nice solution for this?

Thanks Kurt

Hi Kurt,

Thanks for contacting Syncfusion Support.

In SfDataGrid, you can achieve your requirement “AutoScroll and AutoEdit while adding new item in collection’ by using the ScrollToEnd method and BeginEdit method like the below code example,

private void Button_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e) 
            (this.DataContext as ViewModel).OrdersDetails.Add(new OrderInfo() { CustomerID = "100009", Freight = 100 }); 
            Dispatcher.Invoke(new Action(() => 
                var viewModel = this.dataGrid.DataContext as ViewModel; 
                //find the RowIndex for particular record 
                var RowIndex = this.dataGrid.ResolveToRowIndex(viewModel.OrdersDetails[viewModel.OrdersDetails.Count - 1]); 
                // CurrentCell is set if MappingName is EmployeeID 
                this.dataGrid.MoveCurrentCell(new RowColumnIndex(RowIndex, 0)); 

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

thank's very much. I implemented it the way you suggest and it works perfect. The only differnece, I put your code in the CollectionChanged event of the Collection:

model.Medications.CollectionChanged += (s, e1) =>


if (e1.Action == NotifyCollectionChangedAction.Add)

Although it is a ticket from 2016 it was holding the answer about how I can automatically scroll to the end of the datagrid.

So it is very useful to have this information available!
