Thank you for contacting us.
By design in the RadDocking control when a RadPane instance is shown after being hidden it is made selected
in its RadPaneGroup instance. If that group is the active group in the control (one of its RadPane instances is the ActivePane
) the newly shown pane will be made active also and its IsActive/IsSelected properties will be set to true.
As we see that having a option to disable this built-in functionality would be beneficial to the RadDocking control we logged it as a feature request in or feedback portal. You can vote for it and track its status here
