    My terminology is probably off here but what I need to do is to be able to make a pane that is currently minimized (not pinned and thus not visible except for the tab header) active (not pinned but it's contents now visible just as though I had moused over the tab). What I have is something kind of like the output tab of visual studio where I do a build and I want the output tab to be shown - currently I'm just calling PinAllPanes() in order to make sure the pane is shown but this isn't what I want (I don't want to pin the pane and I don't want to have to pin other panes in the group. I if the RadPane.IsActive setter were public I believe that would give me what I want, but, it's not.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Hello Gary,

    I would suggest to set ActivePane property of the Docking control to the needed pane:

    Docking1.ActivePane = Pane1;

    Hope this helps.

    So simple - thanks! I never thought to look at the main docking control - I saw the ActivePane property on the RadPaneGroup control and that had a private setter and I just didn't think to look higher in the chain.

    Thanks again for the help!
