    I have been trying for the past  2 hours to get the Group Panel and the Reorder columns to work in a simple GridView using the SkyLine Theme (http://gallery.expression.microsoft.com/en-us/skylineria) with a Ria Service Template utilizing the Silverlight 3 Navigation features.

    It appears if I go about 50 or so pixels above the Group Panel it registers the drag of the column and will group. The same occurs with the reorder of the columns. It appears that since the Style does a Padding/Margin of about that amount to the Navigation Frame (or border - I cannot tell), it isnt registering that distance when you check for a Mouse Enter in the Group Panel. So because of this I need to overshoot the Group Panel and the Reorder Column Panel by a sizable amount.

    Any help? Is there anything I can do on the GroupPanel Property of hte GridView to change that MouseEnter amount?

    Hi Corey.

    I had the same behavior and figured out that it was a DropShadowEffect on an outer Border element that caused it. After removing the effect from the border everything was just fine. There seems to be an issue with the effect and the group panel...

    That was definately it. I really appreciate the response. It does kinda hamper my layout look, but I can deal with it for the time being. Any, Ideas why something like a Pixel Shader effect on a control would effect the Mouse Enter of the Group Panel?

    Hi Corey, Hi Sven,

    First of all thank you for the response. At this point we still do not know why would a PixelShader affect the GroupPanel and does this affect anything else for that matter. We will be investigating this scenario and provide necessary fixes should there be the need ones.

    Once again thank you for digging into this.
