    Hi There,
    I am trying to Wrap a RadDocking Component with a StackPanel so that i can have a Banner bar on the top of my Application.

    The problem is that When i Add the <StackPanel Orientation="Vertical"> and compile and run the Silverlight application, the Silverlight Plugin actually crashes.

    Is there are a reason why we can not wrap a <StackPanel> arround a  <RadDocking>

    If you use the code below and remove the <StackPanel> the application will run and work fine in Internet Explorer and FireFox.

    XAML Code is below.

                <conv:UserDetailsConverter x:Key="userDetailsConverter"/>
      <StackPanel Orientation="Vertical">
      <StackPanel Orientation="Horizontal">
        <LinearGradientBrush EndPoint="0.5,1" StartPoint="0.5,0">
         <GradientStop Color="#FF200B5C" Offset="0"/>
         <GradientStop Color="#FF1E0DE5" Offset="0.845"/>
                                <TextBlock Text="AZTEC BACKSTAGE" Foreground="White" FontSize="15" Margin="10" FontWeight="Bold" />
                                <TextBlock Text="{Binding UserContext, Converter={StaticResource userDetailsConverter}}" Foreground="White" FontSize="12"

    VerticalAlignment="Center" Margin="10" />
                                <Button Content="Log Out" Height="22" Width="60" Margin="5" Click="LogOutButton_Click"/>
                <telerik:RadDocking x:Name="radDocking1">
                <telerik:RadSplitContainer x:Name="MainContainer" telerik:DockingPanel.InitialSize="600,600" InitialPosition="DockedTop">
                    <telerik:RadPaneGroup x:Name="MasterViewGroup">
                        <telerik:RadPane x:Name="ApplicationPane"  CanFloat="False" CanUserClose="False" CanDockInDocumentHost="False" CanUserPin="False" >
                            <sdk:Frame x:Name="masterViewFrame"/>
            <telerik:RadSplitContainer telerik:DockingPanel.InitialSize="130,130"
                        Name="bottomContainer" InitialPosition="DockedBottom">
                    <telerik:RadPaneGroup x:Name="ApplicationGroupPane" >
                        <telerik:RadPane x:Name="applicationPaneHolder" Header="Applications" IsPinned="True">
                            <ListBox x:Name="applicationListBox"
                                             ItemsSource="{Binding applicationList, Mode=TwoWay}"
                                             ItemTemplate="{StaticResource ApplicationItemTemplate}"
                                             ItemsPanel="{StaticResource ApplicationItemPanelTemplate}"
            <telerik:RadBusyIndicator x:Name="mainBusyIndicator" IsBusy="{Binding DataServicesAreBusy, Mode=TwoWay}" BusyContent="{Binding BusyContentText,

    Mode=TwoWay}"  /> 







    Thank you very much for you help.

    Hi Victor,

    The StackPanel measures its children with infinity. The RadDocking control, however, cannot be measured with infinity. You can try setting the AllowUnsafeMode property on RadDocking. Better yet, I would suggest that you use a Grid instead of a StackPanel, or set an explicit size to the RadDocking control.
