    Hello,

    Is it possible to display the OutlookBar minimized by default (at the bottom where are items) and display icons and titles of items.

    Regards,
    Guillaume.

    Hi Guillaume,

    If I understand your scenario correctly, you can set the RadOutlookBar ActiveItemsMaxCount property to 0 thus causing all items to be minimized at start-up. You can find more info about that property here.

    I also attached a sample project demonstrating this approach. Please give it a try and let us know if this is the functionality that you were looking for.

    Thanks for your reply.

    But now, if the property is set to 0, i can't expand the area.
    I tried to edit the style but i can't access to the outlookbarpanel.

    Can you help me ?
    Regards,
    Guillaume

    Hello Guillaume,

    Unfortunately at the moment the only way to achieve your scenario is by setting the ActiveItemsMaxCount property but as you correctly noted - it doesn't allow you to move the items to the active area later. So you'll need to change its value at some time but this will move a number of items that equals the value of the property  into the active area.

    We are aware that this is a limitation of the control and we have logged it in our PITS where you can vote for it thus increasing its priority. We will do our best to implement a feature that will enable scenarios like yours as soon as possible.

    Please accept our apology for this inconvinience.
