    I am trying to implement my own mediacontrol in my windows phone 7 application, so that i can start-stop songs, display the current song and so on in all windows, so just an overlay like the one already implemented in the OS (unfortunately you have no control over that within your own application).

    Currently i am using popups to get some controls on the pages, but that's pretty slow and much code for just that on every page. And because that's not really efficient, i thought about switching to a solution with the RadControls. So i want to ask if it's possible to make a "static-overlay" and just display it on every page with the RadControls. Is there an easy way to implement that, so that i just have to do the controls once and add one codeline to each page to show that?

    I hope that someone had a similar problem and can point me a way out of my poor implementation

    Hello Florian,

    Thanks for contacting us and for your question.

    In general, to achieve the desired behavior, you could use panels and a custom layout logic to order the controls as you require. However, I am not quite sure that I correctly understand your scenario. If you wish to be able show the media controls on every page of your app you could simply create a base page that contains them and inherit all other pages from it. You should also implement a mechanism that you can use the show/hide the media controls.

    It will be helpful if you manage to share with us a sketch describing your scenario so that we can better understand it and see how we can help.

    Please note that you will need to open a support ticket in order to be able to attach files.

    Thanks for your time.

    All the best,
    the Telerik team
