    Hi All,
    is there a way of expanding and collapsing a a RadPane? i cant see any functionality for it? i.e a way to make it behave like its aspnet ajax counterpart  'Radock', i know you can pin and unpin it when it is docked but i actually mean when it is a floating pane....can you collapse it while floating?

    Hi Kingsley,

    Unfortunately there is no way to do this out-of-the-box. You can write custom code that accomplishes the task, but the Docking control doesn't have this feature. You could find the ToolWindow and change its width and height. Here is a short example of what I mean:
    <docking:RadPane Header="Pane"
        <Button Content="Collapse me" Click="Button_Click" /> 
    private void Button_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e) 
        var fe = sender as FrameworkElement; 
        var window = fe.ParentOfType<ToolWindow>(); 
        if (window != null
            window.Height = 30; 

    Hope this information helps.
