The scenario that you would like to have will be possible with nested RadPageView
As of Q2 2010 SP1 we will be releasing a new RadPageView
mode called Explorer Bar
. This mode supports multiple expanded pages and thus you will be able to create a group-based layout. We are going to update our online help regarding this control and you will be able to receive further information regarding this control.
I am not quite sure that I correctly understand your second question regarding the smaller icons, but we have already a control with this layout: the RadPageView's Outlook Mode.
Please, take a look at our demo application, specifically the RadPageView
I hope this helps.
