When you undock a radPane, the control apparently becomes a tool window.  I can't figure out how to wire events like resize and move for the floating window. My panes are all created in xaml and are initially docked. Is there a docking manager that keeps track of undocked windows and events?

Thanks

Rick

This is the solution I came up with. In the Docking panestateChanged handler:


 

void radDock_PaneStateChange(object sender, Telerik.Windows.RadRoutedEventArgs e)

 

{

 

var pane = e.OriginalSource as RadPane;

 

 

var p = pane.Parent as ISplitItem;

 

 

var container = p.ParentContainer;

 

 

while (container != null)

 

{

p = container;

container = p.ParentContainer;

}

container = p

as RadSplitContainer;

 

 

if (container.Parent != null && container.Parent.GetType() == typeof(ToolWindow))

 

{

 

ToolWindow floatingWindow = container.Parent as ToolWindow;

 

floatingWindow.SizeChanged += floatingWindow_SizeChanged;

}

}

Hi Rick,

 Thank you for your suggestion! You could do exactly the same thing with a less code by using the ParentOfType<ToolWindow>() extension method instead of going up the logical tree. The result will be exactly the same.

Another approach could be to track the SizeChanged event of the content of the pane.

All the best,
