Thank you for using the RadLayoutControl. As the RadLayoutControl was just released as Beta and in its current state it is lacking some features. We are collecting any feedback for the control in order to improve it and make it more flexible and easy to use.
With our next release (which is scheduled for the mid/end of Semptember) we will release the RadLayoutControl as official with new features included. We will expose a mechanism for the clients to:
- hide/show the manipulation popup, for items they want.
- dissable/enable the resizing for items they want.
- forbid/allow dragging of items they want.
With the features described above you should be able to accomplish the first three points in your requirement.
As for your last requirement " allowing to move elements only vertically or horizontally
" could you please elaborate us with a little more information about the use-case scenario that this feature will cover. We are collecting any information about the usage of the RadLayoutControl in order to plan future features.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
