    Iā€™m having trouble with docking on a form containing a RadPanelBar and a RadMenu. I want to have the RadMenu docked to the Top and the RadPanelBar docked to the Left. With the properties set this way, the RadPanelBar reaches the top of the form. My intent is for the RadMenu to fill the top of the form, above the RadPanelBar. If I replace the RadMenu with a Microsoft Control - such as a MenuStrip - it fills the top of the form as desired.


    I have also tried calling the controls' BringToFront() and SendToBack() methods at runtime with no luck.


    I'm running:

    RadControls for Winforms Q1 2007

    VS 2005


    .Net 2.0



    Thanks for your help.

    Hello Pete,

    Could you please try the following solution:

    1. Drag and drop and instance of RadMenu and then of RadPanel on your application's form. 
    2. Set the Dock property of RadMenu to Top
    3. Set the Dock property of RadPanel to Fill
    4. Drag and drop a new instance of RadPanelBar onto the RadPanel as it becomes its child control
    5. Set the Dock property of the new RadPanelBar to Left

    Write me back If I could be of further assistance.

    Best wishes,
