    Hi,

    Thanks for the new Outlookbar (Q3 2010) with a minize option.

    Is it possible to change the text in the ItemArea when the Outlookbar is mininized? Default it shows "Folders" but I want to change it.

    Thanks,

    Hello Gilbert van Veen,

    Currently if you want to change the text "Folders" you should edit the style of the RadOutlookBar in Blend, find the element named MinimizedContentElement and inside it change the Text property of the TextBlock.

    Hi kannan,

    Sorry if I was not clear enough, but you should first edit the style of the RadOutlookBar in Blend and then find the template element MinimizedContentElement (there is no such property on the RadOutlookBar) and inside it change the Text property of the TextBlock. For your convenience I have attached a sample project.

    Hi

    Seriously, I think it is necessary to make the 'Folders' text another dependency property, given it should be fairly cheap and easy to do. In many case, 'Folders' won't make any sense. In our case, we are using outlookbar as a quick menu, it has nothing to do with folders...

    So my question is: will next version of telerik control allows us to change that text? :)

    Regards
    Alex

    Hello,

    I am also having this problem. What is the current solution of changing the RadOutlookBar 'Folders' text? I need to customize also the Grid View drop area to different text. What will be the way to achieve that? I did not understand from the above answer how exactly could i edit the rad component style with ms blend? Will greatly appreciate your answer.

    Thanks
    Oran

    Hi Oran,

    You should right click your xaml page, which contains the RadOutlookBar, click Open in Expression Blend, then right click your RadOutlookBar control and click Edit Template -> Edit a Copy. Thus you will extract the default template of the control and inside it you should find the MinimizedContentElement template part and change the Text property of the TextBlock inside it.

    Thank you very much.

    I have succeeded to perform the changes in the Outlook bar, but not in the GridView group panel that i want to translate. What is the way to achieve the same for the group panel?

    Thanks,
    Oran

    Hello Oran,

    You can use localization to translate the GridView GroupPanel text. You can find more info here and here. Also, if you need to change the default text, you can edit the GroupPanelStyle (read more) and set Text to the panelText TextBlock element.

    I hope this info will help you. Please let us know if we can further assist you.

    Hi Telerik Team,

    I see that this "folders" text will be soon a Property but does that mean it's gonna be a property of the whole RadOutlookBar or can it be linked to sub items? i.e. a basic scenario would be to have this text bind with the header text.

    I got a question (related to that minimized behavior).
    My app is composed of 5 main tab panes in a RadPaneGroup, in my last tab (Admin) I have an RadOutlookBar. (300 width) If I minimize my outlook bar and click on the "Folders" button I can see the content of my Outlook bar item...
    After going on another tab of my app and back to my admin tab, my outlook bar is still minimized, but now when clicking on folders, the content is set to 40 and I need to use the vertical resizer...
    Please let me know if you have been able to reproduce such behavior and if so if you can point me to the right direction
    Thanks in advance
    Jean-Marc

    Hello jean-Marc,

    First the MinimizedButtonContent property is a property of the OutlookBar, but not of the OutlookBarItem. You can inspect its behavior  in the attached solution.
    As for the other issue, yes this behavior is expected. Since you are navigating with the RadPane ( which inherits from RadTabControl ) the OutLookBar is excluded from the visual tree and then included again. Then it doesn't remember its last state (its height, width, etc.). However, this issue will be resolved with the telerik Q1 2011 version of RadControls. In it, the IsContentPreserved property of the RadTabControl will be exposed and will work in these situations. Hope this info helps you.

    All the best,

    Hi,
    We are using ContentTemplateSelector to select content in RadOutlookBar. But this doesn't work in a minimized mode. Clicking on Folders simply displays the viewmodel text.
    Am I missing something?

    Hello Mesfin Afewerk,

    We investigated this and it appears that this is bug in the RadOutlookBar. We logged it in our PITS where you will be soon able to track its status (OutlookBar: When the OutlookBar uses ContentTemplate, the template is not applied in the Popup when minimized area is clicked). Thank you for your cooperation.
