Hi.

I am having a problem with the Docking.
This is what I have so far.
I have created a panel (Telerik.WinControls.Docking.IDockable)
This panel is then added to the current panels with the docking manager.

However, I would like this to be separate at the bottom.
So, I have told the docking manager to create a new horizontal tab group (DockingManager.NewHorizontalTabGroup) and given my panel.

This works great so far. It is separated from the other panels, and is at the bottom, however I have two problems that I cannot seem to sort out.

1) (Not critical) I would like to hide the tab at the top of this new horizontal group. It is the only tab that will ever be here, and is just wasting a little bit of space.

2.) (NB) I need to adjust the size of this bottom TabGroup. It is too big (The two tab groups have split the screen 50/50 I think). I need to make it smaller. So that my new TabGroup at the bottom is say 50pixels in height or so... How would I do this?

Thanks,
Kris

Hello Chris,

Thank you for writing.

The DockingManager.NewHorizontalTabGroup is used for the TabbedDocument behavior.

1) For the current edition of RadDock we do not provide a safe API for accessing and hiding the TabStripElement. You can try this unsafe workaround:

this.dockPanel1.DockableTab.ParentTabStrip.Visibility = ElementVisibility.Collapsed; 

2) Set the Size property of DockPanel or DocumentPane object.

I hope this was helpful. If you have any additional questions, please contact us.
