    We have a scenario where we would like to float panels over the top of a background map. When dragged to a corner of the map we would like the panel to dock to the corner whilst remaining on top of the map. Subsequent panels would then dock (or stack) to the sides of this panel, whilst providing resize behaviour. Can this be achieved with radDocking control?

    Hi,

    I am not sure I understand the exact scenario you are trying to achieve.

    In the current version of RadDocking it is possible to dock RadPanes/RadPaneGroups to any position in the control. Meaning that for example if you place your map inside a Pane that is docked in the DocumentHost of the control you could dock any additional Panes inside, above, bellow, to the right or to the left of that map Pane. You can take a look at the following resources for RadDocking for more details on the built-in functionalities:
    Hope this is helpful.

    Hi, thanks for replying to Ian.

    I attach our design.  We want a map (which uses touch for navigation) with a docking panel over the top.  The idea is the table in the bottom left can be snapped to the corner (page 1).  It can be moved (page 2) and other controls could be docked next to it (page 3).  It is important that the dock panel does not interfere with the map receiving the users clicks\gestures. 

    Thanks, Matt

    Hi,

    Unfortunately the RadDocking control is not designed to be used in the matter described in the screenshots. The control is designed to be used as an application layout in which content could be added in different Panes. The mentioned snapping to edges functionality is out of the context of the Docking control.

    You can take a look at our RadMap control which may be useful in your scenario. You can download our QSF WPF examples via this link.
