How do I tell a floating pane which monitor to use?
It seems that if it get a Point from my form and use an offset that the floating pane uses the whole screen area available and not the monitor that the form is on.  I can subtract from the point to get the floating pane to be on the correct monitor, however if I use a machine with anohter monitor orientation it does not show up where expected.

Is there a way to determine which monitor a floating pane should display?

I've been able to solve this with the RadPane loaded event.

            EditPaneSize paneSize = ((IManningControl)ec).PaneSize;

            ToolWindow toolwindow = rp.ParentOfType<ToolWindow>();
            Int32 offsetCnt = HavePaneInDictionary(ec);
            System.Drawing.Rectangle r = System.Windows.Forms.SystemInformation.VirtualScreen;

            Double x = (r.Left * -1) + this.Left + (paneSize.FloatOffset * offsetCnt);
            Double y = (r.Top * -1) + this.Top + (paneSize.FloatOffset * offsetCnt);
            RadHelper.SetToolWindowLocation(rp, x, y);


The ToolWindow is relative to the whole screen area where as the wpf window is relative to the monitor it is on. Using the VirtualScreen you are able to do the math to account for this.
