    Is it possible with RadDocking to do this?   Windows start out four floating (ToolWindow) windows all the same sized squares.  The docking area is made up of four equally sized squares.   The user can essentially snap the floatings window into one of those four squares, or leave it floating.  So the key point is the ToolWindow never loses its size.   Right now I have them set to 400x400.  

    The idea is the user has a dashboard and can snap in window/user controls or leave them floating.

    Actually, in looking at your controls, I see that Tileview does some of the things I am looking for.  Is it possible to combine the two?  The user clicks a button that adds a new floating window.   The user can drag the window and drop into tiles and it becomes part of that tiles.  The user can click a close button and the tile disappears.  I guess the additional questions I would have is:

    It is possible to customize the tile container so that I could add a slider (Opacity) and a close button that removes the tile to the top, as well as change the container shape to look more like a TabItem?  I have already customized the ToolWindow how I want, so it would be nice to be able to do that same thing to the Tile.

    Maybe the docking part could be removed completely.  Maybe just make a RadWindow that can be either floating or part of the tiles?
