so after a lot of search i've managed to add the button to the header by creating a button element and adding that button to children items of the  collapsible panel header :

RadButtonElement buttonElement = new RadButtonElement()
            {
                Text = "Custom Button",
            };

this.YourCollapsiblepanelName.CollapsiblePanelElement.HeaderElement.Children.Insert(1, buttonElement);

but theres is an issue with sizing when the button size is set to true it fills the  header size 

 

and when i give it a specfic size it creates a button with that size but makes a margin (red line)to fill the header width so haw can i remove this margin and make the header line takes all the rest space

Thank you for sharing your solution. You are on the right track. Using the Children collection of the HeaderElement you can add additional elements (buttons in your case).

Hello, Mansouri,   

My colleague, Dinko, is out of office today so I will be assisting you with this case. Make sure that the button element is not stretched horizontally. I have prepared a sample code snippet for your reference which result is illustrated below:
        public RadForm1()
        {
            InitializeComponent();
            RadButtonElement buttonElement = new RadButtonElement()
            {
                Text = "Custom Button",
                MinSize= new Size(100,20),
                MaxSize = new Size(100,20),
                StretchHorizontally = false
            };

            this.radCollapsiblePanel1.CollapsiblePanelElement.HeaderElement.Children.Insert(1, buttonElement);
        }

I hope this information helps. If you need any further assistance please don't hesitate to contact me.
