    Hi,

    One of the things I find missing in the Outlook mode of the PageView control is the ability to move a page up or down (i.e., change their order). This is accomplished with an additional menu item called "Navigation Pane Options", and a checked list box with all available pages and up/down buttons.

    It seems fairly obvious this functionality isn't included out of the box. Is there a straight-forward way to add it (i.e., add a menu item which could bring up my own dialog for accomplishing this)?

    Related to this would be a way to serialize the PageView content and order to XML, but I can see how to do that myself fairly easily with an extension method.

    Hello David,

    Thank you for the suggestion.

    As this sounds like a reasonable functionality, I have logged it to our Public Issue Tracking System as a feature request. You can add your vote and track its status here: http://www.telerik.com/support/pits.aspx#/public/winforms/13816.

    I have updated your Telerik Points to your account for this feature request.

    Find attached a sample demo application, which you can use as a reference.

    Kind regards,
    Plamen

    Thank you for your reply. Yes, it seems the OverflowItemsContainer.OverflowMenu.Items collection was just what I needed to insert a menu item to bring up a dialog for this. I am a newbie with Telerik WinForms, and missed that as the extension point I needed.

    I do agree it would be a nice feature to add as well.

    Actually, the project I am working on now is a re-write of an in-house application which used its own home-brew navigation pane and docking control, replacing them (and just about everything else) with Telerik WinForms controls. The original navigation pane left a lot to be desired, but re-ordering the tabs was one thing it (finally) did, 4 years after the initial deployment, and it had been on the absolute top of the requested feature list for several of those years; I did not want to not have it in the new version.

    If this does get implemented in a future release, that would be great, but in the meantime, your solution works just as well. Thanks again.
