NavigationView: Allow to deselect current item by clicking again on it


Currently when we start the application, no item is selected. Once we select one it appears as selected and we show a related pane. This is the nominal behavior of the component.

But we want to deselect it when we are clicking again on it (like in Visual Studio Code). So ideally we want a NavigationItemBehavior property with a value "Normal" and a value "Toggle".

Hi Olivier,

Thank you for the idea. It sounds reasonable, so we've approved this. Also, we've changed the title a bit in order to meet the naming convention in the portal.  

Currently, you can achieve your requirement by using the ItemClick event of RadNavigationView. 

private void RadNavigationView_ItemClick(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
	var item = (RadNavigationViewItem)e.OriginalSource;
	if (item.IsSelected)
		Dispatcher.BeginInvoke(new Action(() =>
			item.IsSelected = false;
