    Does RadWindow support dragging outside of the main OOB window to float as a new window?  I have seen some examples of this using the ChildWindow on codeplex.  I just wondered if the RadWindow does this automatically?  Or if you have plans to do this?  Before I start looking at doing this myself.


    Cheers,

    Hello Simeon,

    The RadWindow doesn't support to be dragged out of the main OOB window in Silverlight 5 and we don't have pans to develop this feature.

    Ok.   I just thought with the abiltilty to create new windows outside of the OOB app in elevated mode it might have been something Telerik might have considered.   As you can see from this nice guys blog http://trelford.com/blog/post/Floaters.aspx once the application has been installed locally it is a very powerful feature.

    I suppose I'll hand roll something myself if I get the chance.  I just didnt want to labour on soemthing if it was in the works...


    Cheers,

    Hi Simeon, Miroslav,

    I've recently created a more advanced prototype that supports dragging and dropping between native windows and even features a transparent drag window!
    The source is available on BitBucket: https://bitbucket.org/ptrelford/silverlightnativedragdrop

    Cheers,
    Phil

    Note: for performance I recommend re-using the native window for each new drag operation.
