    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:RadDocumentPane>Stuff here</telerik:RadDocumentPane>

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

    kernel =
    new StandardKernel(new AppModule());

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

    <UserControl x:Class="Whiteboard.Plugin.UI.UnclassLegend"<br>
                 xmlns:mc="" <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.
