    I am in the process of evaluating Telerik controls for WPF.  I started by added a RadTabControl
    to my main window (window1).  I then set up 3 RadTabItems by using the collection editor
    under the Items property of the RadTabControl.  Dragging other controls from the toolbox
    over to specific RadTabItems doesn't appear to work.  I manually went into the XAML code
    and inserted a calendar control on RadTabItem(2), and it shows up when running the
    program, it does not show when in design mode however.  I'm further confused by how
    you would go about adding multiple controls to a RadTabItem.   I am currently using
    Visual Studio 2008 Version 9.0.21022.8 .Net Framework 3.5.  Here is my current
    XAML code.  I'm wondering if someone could give me some pointers on what I'm
    doing wrong ?

    <Window x:Class="Window1"
        Title="Window1" Height="300" Width="708" xmlns:telerik="http://schemas.telerik.com/2008/xaml/presentation">
        <Grid>
            <telerik:RadTabControl Margin="39,51,94,45" Name="RadTabControl1" TabOrientation="Vertical" TabStripPlacement="Left">
                <telerik:RadTabItem AllowDrop="True" Header="Tab1" Name="RTI1"></telerik:RadTabItem>
                <telerik:RadTabItem AllowDrop="True" Header="Tab2" Name="RTI2">
                    <telerik:RadCalendar Name="RadCalendar1" HorizontalAlignment="Left" Width="121" ClipToBounds="True" telerik:StyleManager.Theme="Metro"></telerik:RadCalendar>
                </telerik:RadTabItem>
                <telerik:RadTabItem AllowDrop="True" Header="Tab3" Name="RTI3"></telerik:RadTabItem>
            </telerik:RadTabControl>
        </Grid>
    </Window>

    Kiril,
      After further playing around, it doesn't appear to be
    a problem with your controls.  I just tried the same scenario
    with a microsoft tab control and got the same results.  The
    designer is not refreshing even after I do a Build.  Again,
    the controls I put on the tabitems are showing at run-time,
    just not in design mode. 
    As another experiment, I downloaded Visual Studio 2011
    developer preview this morning.  It works perfect.  I'm
    able to drag and drop my controls from my toolbar over
    to my WPF tabcontrol and they appear within seconds. 
    I added various different controls to the 3 tab items that
    I created, and they all show up in design mode. 
    If Visual Studio 2008 is supposed to respond like you
    showed on your video, something is wacked on my
    installation.  This is my first attempt at working with
    WPF, so I'm definately a novice.  I appreciate any
    advice that you can give me on working with WPF
    in Visual Studio 2008.  I really don't want to invest
    in VS 2010 with VS 2011 so close to launch. 

    Thanks,

    Dan Bratt

    Hi Dan,

    I checked my Visual Studio 2008 version and it is different than your:



    Do you have VS2008 SP1 installed? If not, could you please take a look at this link as it contains useful links for various SPs and VS versions. Give it a try and let me know if it helps.

    Kiril,
        I do see that we are running different editions of VS 2008
    you have Team System and I have Professional.
    We are both running SP1, but these could apply differently
    to our version (maybe ?).   I don't have Microsoft support
    for Visual Studio, otherwise I would log a support incident
    to try and resolve this issue.   I'm not sure what else
    can be done at this point.   Thank you for your follow up
    on trying to help me resolve this problem.



    Sincerely,

    Dan Bratt
