    Hello Telerik Team,
    I would like to ask you whether it's possible to make auto-hidden panes behave just like in Visual Studio (2010).

    By default, when the auto-hidden RadPane is expanded I cannot drag it by clicking on the header and moving the mouse.
    First I have to click the pin/unpin button in the RadPane header.

    In Visual Studio, when the auto-hidden pane is expanded clicking just once on the pane header and moving mouse allows to drag the pane. Clicking and moving inside the body of the pane just sets focus, does do allow to drag.

    As I am just starting out with Rad WPF controls I would like to ask whether replicating this behaviour is possible and if yes could you please demonstrate it on a very simple project? I would be very grateful. If a demonstration is not possible, could you please at least point me in the right direction?

    Thank you very much in advance.

    Best Regards,
    Karol Hrdina

    Hi Karol,

    I am afraid that In the current version of RadDocking control achieving the desired behavior is not possible.

    We will research the possibility of implementing such functionality in one of our future releases of RadControls as we see that this could be an useful feature to have as a built-in one.

    Hello Vladi.

    I would like to ask whether you, Telerik, have had the discussion about usefulness of this feature. It would be good to know a definite answer to the question whether you see this feature as useful (and will implement it in any of the future releases) or it has been decided against it. (Edit: grammar correction)

    Thank you in advance for your answer.

    Regards,
    Karol

    Hello Karol,

    We researched the possibility of implementing such a feature in the control but in the current version of RadDocking it is not a straightforward task and it could lead to breaking some of the other built-in features.
     
    As we see that such functionality would be a good addition to the already available built-in feature of the RadDocking control we logged it in our Public Issue Tracker System where you can vote for it and track its status.
