Notification on SelectRows()


I was wondering if SfDataGrid.SelectionChanged whould also be called when programatically selecting rows with SelectRows(r1, r2)?

Actually it does not trigger the notification. IS this a bug or am I doing something wrong?

Hi Bernd, 
We regret to inform you that, the SelectionChanged event will not be fired while we select the rows programmatically. This is the default behavior of SfDataGrid. However, you can get the notification while calling the SelectRows by using SelectedItems.CollectionChanged event like below, 
 this.datagrid.SelectedItems.CollectionChanged += SelectedItems_CollectionChanged; 
 private void SelectedItems_CollectionChanged(object sender, NotifyCollectionChangedEventArgs e) 
            var selectedItem = e.NewItems[0];

Hi Jai,

thank you for pointing out a direction. I have to see how I can make use of this because I do modifiy SelectedItems within my handler and this could lead to an infinite recursion so I could either disable/reenable the nofitication while processing it or I have to rewrite my code.

The reason I am modifing SelectedItems is because I want to support selection of groups (both collapsed and expanded) with automatically including all contained subgroups or items.

However, you can consider this issue as resolved.
