I gave up the datagrid 2 weeks ago for the traditional listview but there are so many features missing!

Is there any idea on this performance issue?

I've posted replies to some of those, including one of yours.  The problem is refreshing the entire collection is a very expensive operation as it throws away and recreates a lot of objects in the process.  For performance, INotifyPropertyChanged and INotifyCollectionChanged (which ObservableCollection gives you) is the way to go.  Code is posted to your other thread. Thanks!
