    I need to add a DocumentWindow to a RadDock control leaving the focus on my current focused control.
    In other words I don't want the added DocumentWindow activates itself e get focus, i.e. the open link in new tab
    in Internet Explorer.

    How can I achieve it?

    Hi Stefano,

    In order to prevent the current DocumentWindow from being changed, you should handle the ActiveWindowChanging event and set its Cancel property to true. You may need to define a custom boolean flag which will determine the value of the Cancel property and set\reset the flag depending on your specific use cases.

    I hope this helps.

    Hi Nikolay 

    Are you sure that works? I am also trying to open a tab without changing focus and I have done what you suggested but it still changes the focus.

    I even set the cancel event to simply be True just to rule out any logic problems as you can see here:

    Private Sub RadDock1_ActiveWindowChanging(sender As System.Object, e As Telerik.WinControls.UI.Docking.DockWindowCancelEventArgs) Handles RadDock1.ActiveWindowChanging
      e.Cancel = True
    End Sub

    The code that creates the form looks like this:
    Dim form As New LogMeInBrowser()
    form.Text = PageName
    form.Name = PageName & "Servoyant"
    form.MdiParent = Form1

    Any ideas?

    Hello Mark,

    It seems that there is an issue with this functionality. We will address it in one of our next releases. I am not able to provide you with a workaround due to the nature of the issue.

    Your Telerik points have been updated.

    Kind regards,
