The RadDiagramToolBox doesn't support placement change out-of-the box (with Placement property or something). Unfortunately, there is not an easy way to change its position. However, you can use an implicit styles and retemplate it:
You can find the file with the style in the solution Themes.Implicit_WPF.sln, which is in installation folder of your version of UI for WPF, the path should be: ..Program Files (x86)\Telerik\UI for WPF Q1 2014\Themes.Implicit\WPF40\Windows8\Themes\Telerik.Windows.Controls.Diagrams.Extensions.xaml
At the moment the tool box is a grid with 2 columns, so as far as I understand, you need to first to replace the columns with rows. For your convenience I implemented this approach in the attached project using Windows8 theme. Please have in mind that you should take care of a lot of details - for example the animation for show/hide the hidable part with gallery groups (it is implemented in the project), close button path, etc.
I hope that this will give you an idea how to customize the tool box further according your requirements. Please feel free to ask if you need any further assistance.
There was a problem raised while I tried to customize the source of radDiagramToolBox Demo, so I came to this courtyard.
In the demo version, the toolbox provides the default items provided by telerik ui control.
However, I want the Toolbox to have only Start, Rectangle, and Decision shape items.
While reading various articles here, I tried using the methods suggested there, but I could not realize this.
Please help me with this.
I am currently using the DiagramToolBox Demo source provided by Telerik UI for WPF.
I'm not sure which demo you mean by "DiagramToolBox Demo". However, you can see the attached project to the current post - there you can see how to add a custom collection of shapes to the Toolbox (see MainViewModel class). Also, you can see the "Configure a RadDiagramToolbox to Display Part of the HierarchicalGalleryItemsCollection" from the help article and see how to add only some of the built-in provided shapes or "How to Populate RadDiagramToolbox with Custom Data Items" which approach is used in the attached here project.
I hope this information helps.
