Hello Roxana,

 Unfortunately there is no straight-forward way to do that in the current version of the Docking control. You can still implement it by handling the Loaded event of the RadPane control and in the handler you could remove all its commands from the MenuCommands collection. Here is an example:

<telerikDocking:RadPane Header="Pane2" Loaded="RadPane_Loaded">
</telerikDocking:RadPane>
private void RadPane_Loaded(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
{
    ((RadPane)sender).MenuCommands.Clear();
}

Hope this helps.

Isn't customizing the header just what you describe in your blog entry Miroslav?

http://blogs.telerik.com/miroslavnedyalkov/posts/09-08-19/customizing_the_header_of_radpane_control_and_adding_behavior_to_it.aspx

I'm trying to do a similar thing and an struggling to override the header.

Cheers

Steve

Hi Steve,

 Unfortunately the pointed in blog post way is just for adding new buttons to the header and will not help to customize the exiting buttons.

For me it is not enough to remove some or all the commands from the MenuCommands collection :(
This ability to show/hide this context button could be a great feature for a future build!

Is it possible to have an example of the new way for customizing the menu, now that the 2010 Q1 is out?

I would need to add items or commands to the RadPane, how to do it?;

Thanks,
Sieg

Hello Siegfrid,

 What you need to do is to set the ContextMenuTemplate property of the RadPane control. Please refer to the attached example - it demonstrates the recommended way to add commands to the menu.

Hello !

This example is the way to customize items in context menu.

But how can we hide (or template) the button in RadPane header ?

Thanks,
Guillaume.

Hello Guillaume,

 What do you need to hide - items from the menu or buttons from the Header? If you want to remove the ContextMenu its button should be removed automatically.

Hello,

I want to hide the button in title bar.

You said that the button should be removed automatically if I remove ContextMenu but how can I remove the context menu ?

ContextMenu="{x:Null}", the default context menu is still visible. 
ContextMenuTemplate="{x:Null}", the button does nothing but is still visible in title bar.

Thanks,
Guillaume.

Hello GuillaumeR,

You can use the code bellow that will remove the RadPane's contextmenu and the button responsible for its opening:

<telerikDocking:RadPane Header="pane1" ContextMenuTemplate="{x:Null}" />

It would be cool if the correct answer was provided...

This is what I did:

Simply define the context menu to have no items...

    <Window.Resources> 
        <DataTemplate  
            x:Key="PaneContextMenuTemplate">  
            <telerik:RadContextMenu  
                InheritDataContext="False" /> 
        </DataTemplate> 
    </Window.Resources> 
 

 

Then define the context menu template like this:

                    <telerik:RadPane  
                        x:Name="OptionsPanel" 
                        Header="Options" 
                        IsPinned="False" 
                        CanFloat="False" 
                        CanUserClose="False" 
                        CanUserPin="False" 
                        ContextMenuTemplate="{StaticResource PaneContextMenuTemplate}" /> 
 

 

This produces a pane with no buttons or menus...which is what the posters I believe were asking...setting the template to x:Null does not hide the menu button which I think was the objective...

I'm using 2010 Q1 controls.

HTH, Steve

Varun, look at the sample code I presented at the bottom of the thread.  It does create an empty context menu, that much is true, but the code also removes the context menu dropdown thus, hiding the button as I assume you're desiring to do.

Best,
Steve

Hi Everybody,

 The correct way to remove the ContextMenu is to set the ContextMenuTemplate property to null instead of setting it to an empty context menu.

All the best,
