Using ItemTemplateSelector for ControlPanelItems in RadGridView for WPF


Property Value
Product RadGridView for WPF
Version 2023.2.718


I want to use an ItemTemplateSelector instead of the default ItemTemplate for ControlPanelItems in RadGridView for WPF. Currently, the ControlPanelItems are populated using the ItemTemplate defined in the ItemsControl. I would like to have the flexibility to customize the ControlPanelItems based on the type of control specified in a derived ControlPanelItem.


To achieve this requirement, you can customize the ControlTemplate of RadGridView. Follow these steps:

  1. Find and open the Telerik.Windows.Controls.GridView.xaml file for the corresponding Telerik theme.
  2. Locate the RadGridViewTemplate element and copy it to your project.
  3. Replace the ItemTemplate of the PART_ControlPanelItemsControl with an ItemTemplateSelector.
  4. Assign the updated ControlTemplate to the RadGridView instance via its Template property.


  • Make sure to test any modifications to the ControlTemplate thoroughly.
  • The provided sample project can serve as a starting point for your customization.
