You can use the PreviewSelectionChanged event of the RadPanelBar and set e.Handled = true in the handler. This will prevent the RadPanelBarItems from being selected. On the other hand, you can disable only the visual notification of a selected item by changing the default style of the RadPanelBarItem. Please let us know if you need further assistance on this.
