    I'm trying to get the PanelBar to look like Outlook but can't figure out how to make it look like Outlook.  Do I need to manually style the PanelBarItems?

    Hi Todd,

    Yes, you are correct. You need to change the style of PanelBarItems, to achieve your goal.

    Could you post some sample code to your online controls gallery on how to achieve this? Outlook will display the nested contents always at the top and will show the name at the top of the selected group also. Is this possible?

    Hi there,

    We will surely add such an example to our QSF section with the forthcoming Q2 release. Unfortunately, we cannot provide such an example at this time, but you can definitely expect it with the forthcoming Q2 release. If we are ready with the design earlier, we will add it to the QSF right away.

    Best wishes,

    An Outlook navigation bar is definitely needed from my side.

    It is available without extra programming from Infragistics, but I like the rest of Telerik better. When do you plan to have a full Outlook panel bar in the product?

    Hello Ralf,

    Unfortunately I cannot give an exact date for the Q2 release but it will be ~beginning of July, also the OutlookPanelBar will be ready by then but I cannot promise an earlier date.

    Sincerely yours,

    Can you give me an update on this?

    I've seen the roadmap at http://www.telerik.com/products/silverlight/whats-new/roadmap.aspx and it did not include an Outlook like PanelBar.

    Hello Ralf,

    The RadPanelBar is a hierarchical ItemsControl with multiple selection, that can be made to look like a outlook side bar but certainly it would not match its features.

    We are currently working on an Outlook-like PanelBar, here is a screen:



    I am sending you a project with a prototype of the control.

    Please note that this is untested prototype code. What I would like to do is show that we will soon have an outlook-sidebar-like control for you to use.

    All the best,
    Miroslav

    Excellent. This is definitely the direction I'd like it to go.

    I'd like to internally demo a Silverlight prototype with this.

    One functionality I do want to show is the ability to minimize it (snap to the left) by click on "<<" at the top part of the Outlook Bar. Is this already included and if so what do I need to do to activate it? If not, can you either add it and get me another edition that includes this or indicate if this is feasible via a template?

    Regards,

    Ralf

    Hi Ralf,

    We are planning to add the collapsing button but unfortunately it is not ready yet. The control may appear in one of the coming Internal builds (+2 weeks away) but I cannot commit to a date.

    You can always change the ControlTemplate and add a button that will change the MaxWidth/Width of the control, but there is a change in the content as well that is not so trivial to implement.

    Hopefully you will be able to demo the prototype or wait for the IB.

    I'm trying to use the OutlookPanelBar with the latest Silverlight 3 controls listed under daily builds, but am experiencing the following error:

    Error 2 The tag 'RadOutlookBar' does not exist in XML namespace 'clr-namespace:Telerik.Experimental.Controls.Navigation;assembly=Telerik.Experimental.Controls.Navigation'. C:\PurePay\Current\Prototype\ApexPrototype\MainPage.xaml 20 10 ApexPrototype

    Is there a newer version that will be compatible?

    Thanks,
    Ross

    Hi Ross,

    Unfortunately the RadOutlookBar is not available with the Latest internal builds, since it will not appear for the Q2 release.

    We plan to first release it with a Service Pack after the Q2 release.

    I am sorry for the inconvenience.

    Is there any update on this?  My boss is dearly in love with Outlook and what we have now is a tree.  I have basically two choices - one is to style the top-level nodes to "look" like Outlook and the other is to use your Outlook control if it is available.  If there is code available on how to style this already, I would love to see that too.

    I am using Silverlight 2 and cannot change until mid-September.

    Thanks,
    Tim

    Hi
    I have downloaded the outlook style panel bar from this thread and integrated with my application, running on silverlight3. But whenever I have changed the dlls of Controls and Controls.Navigation from old version to the latest one, the outlookItem highlighting on click is not working. I can't proceed with the old Dlls since i am using it in other scenarios in same project. So please let me know a solution to resolve this issue

    Regards
    SUNU

    Hi sunu,

    I don't understand the scenario. Are you using the RadOutlookBar from the Q3 Beta2 release?

    Hi
    Thanks for letting me know regarding the RAD silverlight3 Q3 release. I've saw the demo and very much impressed with the OutlookControl and Ribbon control. But whenever i was trying to download the latest Q3 version via the link http://www.telerik.com/products/silverlight.aspx , it is showing the path of old msi file(Q2 release). Can you please let me know the link through which i can  download the latest version.

    Regards
    SUNU

    Hello,

    I am new to Silverlight (and .NET and C# for that matter) so apologize for my questions if they are a bit obvious.

    I am not sure if I am posting the question to the right RadControl forum. But I am looking for a way to be expand my tab, like in outlook, wherein if I click a tab, a set of clickable elements will will appear.

    Specifically, I need to modify the RibbonBar example, so that I should optionally be able to drag the shapes control to left side panel.

    This brings me to another question, can the user dynamically change the layout, and have the settings saved, such that only that user will be able to see the changes.

    - Umaa

    Hello Umaa Krishnan,

    We have this issue logged for future implementation. You can track it here:
    http://www.telerik.com/support/pits.aspx#/public/silverlight/373

    As for your second question - we currently do not provide the state persistence on the OutlookBar.
