                                This example demonstrates how to bind GridControl's selected rows to a property in ViewModel in a MVVM-based application. The SelectionAttachedBehavior helper class used in this sample, provides a bindable SelectedItemsSource property, that can be used to define selection at the ViewModel level.

                                Note, we made the SelectionAttachedBehavior class as generic as possible, and the same approach can also be used for other controls that support multiple selection. This example demonstrates how this can be done when working with the standard ListBox control, as well as with the standard DataGrid.

                                  I am using this procedure to preserve selected rows for the WPF GridControl, but as we are updating the grid with new data in a timer, the selected rows are still getting lost. Please suggest how should we modify this sample so as to preserve grid selected rows even between the updates (like same selected rows should be present after the grid is updated with new data in a separate thread). Also, We are using a NavigationStyle=Cell, so just wanted to also check if we need to change the NavigationStyle to Row for your below sample to work with grid updates?

                                  In this example how to avoid multiple selection of rows. Our requirement is user should not be able to select mutiple rows. only single row should be allowed ro select. Hope this clarifies our requirement.
