    I have a control that is hosted in the RadTimeBar that contains items that the user can click. But the RadTimeBar seems to be capturing all mouse activity and the child control is not able to detect the clicks. Is there any way for a control hosted in RadTimeBar to receive mouse input

    Hi Joel,

    Basically, the panel that hosts the content of the TimeBar (TimeBarContentPanel) lies beneath the other TimeBar panels, e.g. ItemContainer, GroupContainer, etc. That is why the hosted control cannot detect mouse interaction. However, you can take advantage of the TimeBar.HoveredPeriodChanged event and TimeBar.HoveredPeriod property, which will give you information for the hovered period and when it is changed. Based on this information you can implement custom logic for manually interaction with the hosted control in the hovered period range. For example:
    timeBar.HoveredPeriodChanged += new EventHandler<HoveredPeriodEventArgs>(timeBar_HoveredPeriodChanged);
    void timeBar_HoveredPeriodChanged(object sender, Telerik.Windows.Controls.TimeBar.HoveredPeriodEventArgs e)
        if (timeBar.HoveredPeriod.HasValue)
            //implement custom logic

    I hope this information helps.

    Best wishes,
    the Telerik team
