    I am using the RadSplitter control with a RadSlidingZone containing 2 RadSlidingPanes. I don't want the standard pane header in the SlidingPane to display (so it's hidden using css) but still want to have the ability to dock/undock each of the sliding panes. The dock/undock functionality is triggered by clicking buttons that call methods in the client API of the slidingzone/slidingpane... this works well, but as soon as I dock one of the panes, the sliding panes don't come out if I hover over the tab in the sliding zone. Is there something else I need to do in order to show the sliding pane when the user hover overs a sliding zone tab?

    In the code below, the buttons will dock/undock Panes 1 and 2. After clicking on the buttons, the other pane no longer slides out from the vertical tabs in the sliding zone.

    Hi Ryan,
    You need to collapse the sliding pane, before you dock it. For example:
    <script type="text/javascript">
        function TogglePane(paneID)
            var slidingZone = $find("<%=RadSlidingZone1.ClientID%>");
            var slidingPane = slidingZone.getPaneById(paneID);
            var isDocked = slidingPane.get_docked();
            var result;
            if (isDocked)
                result = slidingZone.undockPane(paneID);
            } else
                result = slidingZone.dockPane(paneID);

    Best wishes,
