    I'm currently using RadPanelBar with a single panel group element in an inheritable form where I'm programming a set of common functions for all the forms that will inherit from it. I set the RadPanel modifiers property to "protected" so I can add new group elements in each inherited form for their particular functionality.

    But when I am dessigning the inherited form, RadPanelBar properties appear as in read only mode, so I cannot add new panel groups, new controls in the panel group that already exists... etc.

    Am I missing something? Is not possible use this control in the way I'm trying to?

    Thank you in advance for your response.

    Hi Jorge Pascual,

    There is a general problem with some complex controls in Visual Studio design-time. These problematic controls have been disabled so that they can not be modified by inheritors. This issue appears for Microsoft controls and Telerik controls. You can have a look at this blog. It refers to Visual Studio 2005 but the issue persists in 2008 also. You will have to make your modifications through code.

    Best wishes,
    the Telerik team
