    Hi Xaria D,

    Thank you for contacting Telerik Support.

    Unfortunately, the current version of RadDocking doesn't support maximize and full-screen state of RadPanes. We will consider implementing these features in one of our future releases if we receive enough clients' requests.
    You can track progress on these features in our Public Issue Tracking System (PITS) with Issue ID: 2427

    I hope this information helps. I will be glad  to assist you further.

    Regards,
    George

    Hello Tldesigner,

     
    If a pane is floating, you could easily maximize it when double click on its header. Hope this helps.

    Hello George,

    You are right, but we need a simple button (like a normal window) to maximize it. For our users this option is more visible and intuitive.

    Thanks you.

    Regards,
    TLDesigner.

    beware, it doesn't save the layout correctly of any maximized windows.  And will likely throw an exception if you LoadLayout of something that had a maximized window.

    We have the same issue in our Silverlight 5 app- We need to be able to add "Maximize" button in the header so that it would be visible and intuitive. We need support regarding this. Of course, we are aware that double clicking on the header would maximize it. But, we still want to be able to add the button next to "pin","close" buttons for the obvious reasons on our side. We own the valid licenses for these controls. Please advise us how we can do this.

    Hello Raghavendra,

    In order to add a Maximize/Restore buttons in the ToolWindow header, I would suggest modifying the toolwindow template and add the two buttons manually. Please, refer to the attached project and let me know if this suits your needs.

    Hello Raghavendra,

    Yes, the same approach can be applied to Silverlight 5 Out-Of-Browser application.
    In the attached application you can find a simple implementation.
    Hope this will help.

    Great work, Telerik. But, can we make this work even when Pane is docked? I mean - can we show the maximize/restore button show even when the pane is not floating and docked? and, upon clicking the maximize/restore, it should maximize or restore. I know that your question would be where to restore. We can restore to the center of the DocumentHost or some random location.

    Hi Raghavendra,

    This is a little bit out of the box and you need to use a DataTemplate to insert a Button in the RadPane header as shown in this help article. So the tricky part is that you need to implement the logic on button click and take in consideration if the click comes from a floating Pane or from a docked one. I am attaching a simple scenario using one button for maximizing and restore. The logic uses  the previous PaneGroup to restore a docked Pane and in some cases this might not work (depending on your scenario), but if you want to make sure that it can always be restore, you just need to have a static (never to be moved) PaneGroup and restore the Panes there. 
    If you have more questions, please don't hesitate to contact us.

    All the best,

    Hello,

    We're trying to achieve the same behavior you've described on this post, but using the Silverlight components library.  

    Until now we haven't been able to do it. We've searched throught both the CHM documentation and several forum posts without success. Is there any way to do it with Siliverlight? Could you please throw some light into this issue? :).

    Thank you very much in advance and regards.

    Hello,

    Attached you can find a simple project showing how you can achieve a similar behavior in Silverlight. Please not that it might not work in some scenarios (like when new RadPaneGroup is generated) so you might need to adjust it a little bit in order to suits your needs. New RadPaneGroup and RadSplitContainers are generated when a Pane is undocked (ToolWindow is created) or when a ToolWindow is docked where there is no existing RadPaneGroup and SplitContainer.
