Hi,

in my application I have the need to display some information on demand.
The idea is something like John Kellar posted here: http://blogs.telerik.com/blogs/09-04-20/maximizing_space_with_radexpander_for_wpf.aspx
I don't use expander instead I want to solve this with Split.
So I have the main content and on the bottom some "Info buttons" which shall highlight when something happens in the content of these things. Or even popup automatically (like Errors in VS).
The first problem (but this is more cosmetic) is the border around the document - in this case my "main content".
You see in code that I tried a lot to remove the border - but where ever I place something - it has no effect.
On the other hand I get used to it - currently your SL controls require a lot of templates to achieve such things.
So like with horizontal Gauge I'll have to start blend and work with the templates :)

The real problem is a different.
When you start this application and hover over "Chat" and "Other" both pop up - like they should.
BUT - hover Chat first otherwise you'll never see the listbox.
In other words - after "Other" popped up - Chat's content is no longer visible.

                                </ListBoxItem> 
                                <ListBoxItem> 
                                    <TextBlock Text="Four"/>

                </radDock:RadPaneGroup> 
            </radDock:RadSplitContainer> 
        </radDock:RadDocking> 
    </Grid> 
 

This is something like http://www.telerik.com/community/forums/silverlight/docking/dynamically-loaded-document-pane-content-goes-away-when-switching-tabs.aspx
But I started an own thread because:
a.) I don't load dynamically
b.) I'm not sure if it is the same
For b.) I use UI Elements on both panes.

I use Version 2009.1.413.1020

Hi ManniAT,

It is the same issue as in this thread http://blogs.telerik.com/blogs/09-04-20/maximizing_space_with_radexpander_for_wpf.aspx as you already noticed. You can work it around by using a TextBlock instead of string content. I replaced this code:

I looked on the wrong side - sorry.
While I was checking my first pane for "string content" - I totally oversaw the right pane :)

Thanks a lot
