Scroll to Newly Added Item

This article shows how to scroll RadGridView to the newly added item.

You can achieve this by using the ScrollIntoViewAsync method and the CollectionChanged event of the control's Items collection. For the purpose, you can create an attached behavior and attach it to your RadGridView control.

Example 1: The custom attached behavior

public class ScrollToNewItemBehavior 
    public static bool GetIsEnabled(DependencyObject obj) 
        return (bool)obj.GetValue(IsEnabledProperty); 
    public static void SetIsEnabled(DependencyObject obj, bool value) 
        obj.SetValue(IsEnabledProperty, value); 
    public static readonly DependencyProperty IsEnabledProperty = 
        DependencyProperty.RegisterAttached("IsEnabled", typeof(bool), typeof(ScrollToNewItemBehavior), new PropertyMetadata(false, OnIsEnabledChanged)); 
    private static void OnIsEnabledChanged(DependencyObject d, DependencyPropertyChangedEventArgs e) 
        var gridView = d as RadGridView; 
        gridView.Items.CollectionChanged += (s, args) => 
            if (args.Action == System.Collections.Specialized.NotifyCollectionChangedAction.Add) 
                gridView.ScrollIntoViewAsync(args.NewItems[0], gridView.Columns[0], null); 
Public Class ScrollToNewItemBehavior 
    Public Shared Function GetIsEnabled(ByVal obj As DependencyObject) As Boolean 
        Return CBool(obj.GetValue(IsEnabledProperty)) 
    End Function 
    Public Shared Sub SetIsEnabled(ByVal obj As DependencyObject, ByVal value As Boolean) 
        obj.SetValue(IsEnabledProperty, value) 
    End Sub 
    Public Shared ReadOnly IsEnabledProperty As DependencyProperty = DependencyProperty.RegisterAttached("IsEnabled", GetType(Boolean), GetType(ScrollToNewItemBehavior), New PropertyMetadata(False, AddressOf OnIsEnabledChanged)) 
    Private Shared Sub OnIsEnabledChanged(ByVal d As DependencyObject, ByVal e As DependencyPropertyChangedEventArgs) 
        Dim gridView = TryCast(d, RadGridView) 
        AddHandler gridView.Items.CollectionChanged, Sub(s, args) 
            If args.Action = System.Collections.Specialized.NotifyCollectionChangedAction.Add Then 
                gridView.ScrollIntoViewAsync(args.NewItems(0), gridView.Columns(0), Nothing) 
            End If 
        End Sub 
    End Sub 
End Class 

Example 2 demonstrates how you can apply the new behavior to all RadGridView instances in your application via an implicit style.

Example 2: Set the attached property in an implicit style

    <Style TargetType="telerik:RadGridView"> 
        <Setter Property="local:ScrollToNewItemBehavior.IsEnabled" Value="True" /> 

If you're using implicit styles, you should base your style on the RadGridViewStyle as explained in this article.
