Currently RadPanelBar does not provide this functionality out-of-the-box. However, you can take advantage of our Docking control
and put a PanelBar in any of its panes, as demonstrated in the attached project. Have a look at it and let me know if you have additional questions or comments regarding this topic. I'd be glad to further assist you.
