    Hi there,

    I am trying to use the docking as overlay to my existing WPF application.

    I did set the background of the docking to transparent, but I can not click on the items behind it.

    If I set ishittestvisible to false then I can click on the items behind the but I can not click on any item in the docking panes anymore.

    Is there any trick to archieve this.

    My goal is to have a streched docking over my entire application in order to bring in tools from all sides while being able to interact with the underlying grid of controls.

    Any hint would be appreciated.

    Hello Jan,

    Transparent background still stops the mouse hit testing, but if you set the background to be null using {x:Null} this would let the hit testing to go through the background.

    Hope this helps.
