    I've noticed that it is easier to drag and drop docked element on top of another element, as supposed to on the bottom of that element. Is it possible that you guys can make the top and bottom drop zones equally sensitive? Take a look at the igoogle example with their drag panels, it is easy to drag and drop regardless http://www.google.com/ig. With the RAD controls, to drop on the bottom takes several tries.
    Please look into it.

    If you place(mouse position) a RadDock1 over RadDock2, the RadDock1 will be docked before RadDock1. If you want to dock RadDock1 after RadDock2 your mouse should be between RadDock2 and the end of the RadDockZone. In case that this space is too small you could create the RadDockZone with bigger height or add a bigger padding-bottom to the RadDockZone.

    Thank you. Expanding the Height of the RadDockZone did the trick.

    One thing though I've noticed, which might become a slight inconvenience is buy specifying height, you are restricting the drop zone to be fixed, so when I stuck up like 4 or 5 docks on top of each other, I'm starting to see scroll bars.

    The best sollution is to add a bigger padding-bottom to the RadDockZone.
    If you set Height property scrollbars will appear . If you want to resize the RadDockZone depending on its content you should set RadDockZone's MinHeight instead Height property.
