Hi
I was looking for the expand and collapse feature for the RADOutlookBar control. I can't find any property that do so.
Is it possible to incorporate the expand/collapse feature just like MS outllokbar. I will be greateful, if your team can provide such a feature to the current RAD control,if it doesn't exists.

Regards
SUNU

Hello Sunu,

Thank you for your interest in RadOutlookBar. Currently this functionality is not yet available, but we have plans to support it. However, I cannot bind to a specific date. I'd like to use the occasion to ask if you have other feature requests for RadOutlookBar, some functionality you'd like to see implemented in the future. Let me know what is your oppinion on the matter.

Hi
Thanks. We have one more suggestion/requirement for the upcoming outlookbar control.

Our requiremet is to add a new section which has to display other data than the content template. Current outlook control doesnot support a template which can be bind against ItemTemplate, other than content template. For implementing this, we have created a new section in content template and assigned seperate datasource. It will be better if you can provide a new scction just like content template in which new conntrols can be displayed & can be set binding via a new Item template.

Please find the attached  screenshot & code so that the requirement will be more clear.

Hello Oztern,

Thank you for your feature request. I am not sure that we will implement this feature for Q2 2010, since this scenario is achievable by adding an additional ItemsControl in the ContentTemplate, as you are currently doing. However, I've added you feature request in our PITS under the name "OutlookBar: Additional section, separate from Content area" and tomorrow the latest it will be available for voting. If it gathers enough popularity, we will definitely be implemented. Meanwhile, if you have additional feedback for RadOutlookBar, do not hesitate to contact us.

All the best,

Hi Oztern,

For the moment we will not offer this functionality out of the box due to the low demand for it. If you take a look at the associated PITS item, you can see that this feature request has generated 0 votes. However, if this features grows in popularity during Q2, we will implement it during Q3.

Hello Oztern,

Thank you for the clarification. I was talking about the "OutlookBar: Additional section, separate from Content area" item that has 0 votes. As for the item associated with the minimized functionality, we will do our best to release this functionality with our Q3 2010 release. However, I cannot confirm that with 100% certainty since there are things with higher priorities than this feature request.
