    Hi, 


    I've recently started using Telerik WPF controls so bare with me when I try to explain my problem.  First thing I have tried to do was to create a dynamic layout docking application.  As shown in number of tutorials, I have created a simple WPF application with RadDocumentHost and another UI class that looks like this: 


    <telerik:RadDocumentPane x:Class="RadControlsWpfApp1.RadControlsScenario1"<br>        xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation"<br>        xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml"<br><span class="Apple-tab-span" style="white-space:pre">       </span>xmlns:telerik="http://schemas.telerik.com/2008/xaml/presentation"<br>        xmlns:d="http://schemas.microsoft.com/expression/blend/2008"<br>        xmlns:mc="http://schemas.openxmlformats.org/markup-compatibility/2006"<br>        Header="RadControlsScenario1" mc:Ignorable="d" d:DesignHeight="288" d:DesignWidth="290"><br>    <Grid><br>        <TextBlock Text="Blah blah blah"/><br>    </Grid><br></telerik:RadDocumentPane>



    When I try to look at the xaml for this window in VS designers, all I get is a large grey box that covers the entire area.  At that point I can't drag/drop any new controls onto the window.  


    Also, in another application that I have converted to use RadDocumentPane, I get very large header tabs at runtime ( about half of the client space is covered by the header tab ).


    Has anyone seen this too?  Any help would be greatly appriciated.


    Btw, I'm running latest version of the WPF toolkit ( 2012.1.326.40 )

    Hello Marcin,

    I've logged this issue in our issue tracking system, you can vote for it and track its progress here. At the moment we cannot specify a certain timeframe for it, most probably it will not be done for Q2 release

    Kind regards,

    Would downgrading to a previous version of WPF controls fix this issue?  If so, any idea which version?

    Hi Marcin,

    We do not recommend downgrading to a previous version. I would suggest to add a  normal user control to a RadPane instead.
