    Hello Xaria,

     This is not supported by the RadWindow control.

    It says, the main window of our application (that I currently start to build using RadControls for WPF Q3 2009), cannot be designed as RadWindow, and will have a different appearence from the other windows of the application (that are RadWindows), can it?

    Hello Yehuda,

    The RadWindow control is not designed to be used as an application main window, but to be used as a child window. This is the reason why it doesn't support to be used as a MainWindow - it doesn't inherit from the Window class so the framework doesn't recognizes it as a Window. This is needed to make it work correctly in XBAP and to share the same API in Silverlight.

    RadWindow is very nice (especialy with themes and other Telerik component). I use RadWindow as 'main' window. Only thing do not work is Windows TaskBar.

    I try something like this, but no luck (when window is hidden TaskBar item is also hidden).

     


     

    Application.MainWindow = new Window
                                 {
                                     Title = "Program Title",
                                     ShowActivated = false,
                                     Visibility = Visibility.Hidden,
                                     ShowInTaskbar = true,
                                     WindowStyle = WindowStyle.None,
                                     Height = 0,
                                     Width = 0
                                 };
    Application.MainWindow.Show();

    Any idea how to fix this(in WPF) ?

    Any plan for official support RadWindow as main Window?

    You can't use it as a main window? Wow, I just started my evaluation of this product today and it looks so promising. But something trivial as this should have been integrated in step one of development.. Will this be in the Q3 release?

    Hi Eaton,

    We don't have plans to change the implementation of the RadWindow at this stage. As Miroslav said before, the RadWindow doesn't inherit from the Window class so the framework doesn't recognizes it as a Window. This is needed to make it work correctly in XBAP and to share the same API in Silverlight.
    Sorry for any inconvenience caused.

    I use RadWindows as "main" but loose some features.

    Maybe Telerik can make a XAML style for a "normal" Window so it looks like the new "Dark" theme (that I like and use a lot!).
