    I am using the Telerik docking control to be able to dock a RadPaneGroup inside another RadPane, but the rad pane group control
    always gets docked outside my parent control which unfortunately is not the wanted result. Here is a sample of my source code :

    <telerik:RadDocking x:Name="RadDocking1" CloseButtonPosition="InGroup" AllowUnsafeMode="True" AllowDragReorder="True" AllowDrop="True">
                        <telerik:RadPaneGroup Margin="-8">
                            <telerik:RadPane x:Name="MapPane" Visibility="Collapsed" PaneHeaderVisibility="Collapsed" CanUserClose="False" CanFloat="False" CanUserPin="False" CanDockInDocumentHost="True">
                                        <Image Source="Assets/map.png" Stretch="Fill"></Image>
                                        <telerik:RadSplitContainer x:Name="Container" InitialPosition="DockedRight" UseLayoutRounding="True">
                                            <telerik:RadPaneGroup x:Name="PaneGroup"  Height="300" Width="200">
                                                <telerik:RadPane  CanDockInDocumentHost="True" x:Name="RadPane" Header="TestPane">
                                                    <TextBlock Text="TestPanel"/>

    I looked at the demo samples over Telerik website but couldn't find any sample that does what I want

    I have a sample project which consists of a map ( picture, for simplicity purposes ) and a panel that needs docking. What I want is to be able to dock that panel inside the parent ( the map control ), not outside it.
    Attached I have a screenshot of my sample app running.

    Placing RadPane inside another RadPane is considered a nested Docking scenario which is not supported in the current version of the control. We are currently researching all the uses and the possibility of implementing such functionality in the RadDocking control in one of our future releases of RadControls.

    Thank you for sharing with us your scenario, we will take it in inconsideration when implementing the nested Docking controls feature.

    All the best,
