    make a boolean field IsLastItem in your model then when you add the last item or you can check via traversing set that field to true. Make a data trigger for that field and set a different color for the last field

    Collection View Highlight the last added item

    In the CollectionView, the selected item will highlight. For the function, you could set the last item as the selected item.

    Check the code:

    <CollectionView x:Name="collectionView"
                    ItemsSource="{Binding GroupDataCollection}" 
                    SelectionMode="Single" ...>


    var viewModel = new CustomViewModel();
    viewModel.DataCollection.Add(new CustomModel { ... });
    collectionView.SelectedItem = viewModel.DataCollection[viewModel.DataCollection.Count - 1];
