    This is by design, I assume, that when a window is minimized or nor longer active that the docking tool windows are hidden. However, we have a docking control that is a tab within a tabbed control. When the tab containing the docking control is hidden by a different tab window selection, the floating tool windows of the hidden tab's docking window are removed (hidden) from view as well. We would like an option to allow them to stay visible when their parent window is hidden. 

    Is there a way of preventing this default hiding of the tool windows when the parent is hidden?

    Hi Matt,

    You are correct - this is by design - RadTabControl hides the content of its tabs when changed. But you can set its IsContentPreserved property to true and this way the ToolWindows will remain visible:
    <telerik:RadTabControl IsContentPreserved="True">

    Hope this helps. Feel free to contact us in case you have any problems or concerns.
