Thank you for writing.
Yes, it is possible to mimic the behavior of Outlook, however RadPageView control is not suitable for your case. Here are the answers to your questions:
1. This can be achieved with RadTreeView control: http://www.telerik.com/help/winforms/treeview-overview.html
2. This can be achieved by subscribing to the TextChanged
event of RadTextBox
and filter the RadTreeView
with the entered text.
3. You can perform sorting of RadTreeView
as described here: http://www.telerik.com/help/winforms/treeview-working-with-nodes-sorting.html
, or you can perform custom sorting for more precise scenarios as described here: http://www.telerik.com/help/winforms/treeview-working-with-nodes-custom-sorting.html
4. You can place the controls in a ToolWindow
to make them dockable.
Attached you can find a sample project which demonstrates a simple scenario according to your description.
I hope that you find this information useful. Let me know if I can be of further assistance.
