I'm in the process of testing out the telerik rad controls for WPF and trying to decide if these controls best fit my needs.
Currently I'm testing the RadDocking and what I'm looking to accomplish is, have any panel I put in have the ability to fill the container and then the next panel would split depending on where I dock it.

Example:
If I have two floating panels and if I drag and dock the first left, it will dock left and fill the whole RadDock, then if I take the second panel and dock bottom, it will split the first panel and appear to be on the bottom. then I'll continue to dock like this until the interface is built(with additional panels.
Also I'd like to not have any DocumentPanes, I don't want to see tabs unless I fill one panel inside another.

Hopefully this makes sensem I'd appreciate any example someone can provide to accomplish this.

thanks steve

Hi Steve,

 What you need to do is to set the HasDocumentHost property of the Docking control to False - this will remove the space, reserved for the DocumentHost.

If I understand you correctly the other features should come out-of-the-box when using the Docking control.

If you have further questions, don't hesitate to ask!

Thank's for the reply, I thought it should be out of the box functionality, I just didn't see any examples showing it like this.

thanks again steve

Hi Steve,

 The default behavior is like Visual Studio - it shows a placeholder for the DocumentHost. We will consider adding such examples because you are right that we didn't show this feature.

Thanks for the response, so far I like the dock its straight forward and easy to use. I'll be moving on to the grid next after I add a little saving & loading to the dock.

I like what I see in your products so far, along with the support in the forum.
