    Hi,

    We're using the DocumentHost as the central part of our application. Panes are opened and closed on a fairly high rate - similarly to a browser's tabs. Panes are sometimes opened as a result of a menu action (from the top menu) and sometimes as a result of an item which was clicked inside a specific pane.

    When a pane is closed, the user expects that the previously selected pane will now be selected (instead of simply selecting the first pane). This works kind of like a stack, whenever a pane is selected it's added to the top of the stack and when a pane is hidden/closed we should pop the previous one from the stack and make that the selected one (and not simply the first).

    While we have a few thoughts at implementing this, we'd appreciate your feedback - how can we best implement this? Could this also be a built-in feature for the DocumentHost in the future?

    Thanks,
    yonadav

    Hi Yonadav,

     What I could suggest you is to use the SelectionChanged event of the RadPaneGroup control to update your stack and to listen to the Close event of the Docking control as well and to change the selection of the group that owns the closed pane.

    Hope this information helps!

    All the best,

    Miroslav,

    The current behavior (selecting first pane when current pane is closed) is very annoying for the user. It shouldn't be too difficult to modify RadPaneGroup to maintain a "selection stack" so that when a pane is closed the previously selected pane is selected. Is there a chance this change can be included in a Q2 2010 SP?

    Thanks,

    Joe

    I can't open the PITS item (ID 1992), what's the problem?

    What's the status on the PITS item? We would also like this implemented as a standard feature.

    The PITS item 1992 is indeed fixed according to its description (i.e. when dragging a tab the previous selected tab in the group will be selected).

    However, that item doesn't seem to have anything to to with the problem discussed in this thread. In the last release (2012.2.725.40) the problem is still there: When closing a pane the first pane in the group always gets selected.
    Are there any plans on fixing this? Or maybe a new PITS item on the subject?

    Regards
    Tobias
