How do I inject a RadSplitContainer to my main docking manager (telerik:RadDocking). Currently I'm doing the following.

I am using the ninject DI framework.

I have the following code in my main main window.

<telerik:RadDocking x:Name="mainDockingManager" Grid.Row="1" Grid.Column="0">
<telerik:RadDocking.DocumentHost>
<telerik:RadSplitContainer><telerik:RadPaneGroup>
<telerik:RadDocumentPane>Stuff here</telerik:RadDocumentPane>
</telerik:RadPaneGroup>
</telerik:RadSplitContainer>
</telerik:RadDocking.DocumentHost><br></telerik:RadDocking>

In the constructor I initialise the DI framework and inject the ILegend usercontrol into the docking manager.

 
InitializeComponent();
kernel =
new StandardKernel(new AppModule());
this.mainDockingManager.Items.Add(kernel.Get<ILegend>());


The ILegend UserControl is just a wrapper around a <telerik:RadSplitContainer> i.e.:

<UserControl x:Class="Whiteboard.Plugin.UI.UnclassLegend"<br>
             xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation"<br>
             xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml"<br>
             xmlns:mc="http://schemas.openxmlformats.org/markup-compatibility/2006" <br>
             xmlns:d="http://schemas.microsoft.com/expression/blend/2008"<br>
             xmlns:telerik="clr-namespace:Telerik.Windows.Controls;assembly=Telerik.Windows.Controls.Docking"<br>
             mc:Ignorable="d" d:DesignHeight="300" d:DesignWidth="300"><br>
    <telerik:RadSplitContainer telerik:DockingPanel.InitialSize="170,500" InitialPosition="DockedLeft">


This method doesn't seem to be working, is it possible to inject different implementations of a RadSplitContainer containing different content?

Hi Seth,

The problem is that you are wrapping the RadSplitContainer inside a UserControl and the Docking control expects to receive a RadSplitContainer directly. What I would suggest you is to use the SplitContainer as root element of the XAML file instead of the UserControl to change the code-behind file to make your class to inherit from RadSplitContainer instead of UserControl. Similar approach is described in this article about the RadWindow control.

Hope this information is helpful.
