Virtualization of GridView in RowDetails

Environment

Product RadGridView for WPF

Description

How to make sure that the virtualization of a RadGridView inside the RowDetailsTemplate of another RadGridView is enabled.

Solution

Set the Height property of the RadGridView in the RowDetails. This will ensure that it is not measured with infinity and enable the virtualization. Since the element that hosts the RowDetails is inside a RowDefinition with its Height set to Auto, by default the UI Virtualization will be disabled.

    <Grid.Resources>  
        <my:MyViewModel x:Key="MyViewModel"/>  
        <DataTemplate x:Key="RowDetailsTemplate">
