    I have a raddock with DockMode="Floating". When this dock is activated I would like there to be a modal just like you can do with RadWindow.

    Hi Boone,

    RadDock does not provide the desired  functionality but you could achieve it with some custom code. I have prepared a sample page which demonstrates how to achieve the desired behavior. The sample contains a button which shows a floating dock when clicked and makes it modal. When it is clicked on the Close command of the dock the dock is closed and all other controls on the page become active. Please, note that it is very important to set z-index to the RadDock so that all controls with a z-index less than that of the dock will become inactive when you make the dock modal. You can feel free to modify the provided sample so that it answers the requirements of your scenario.

    Best wishes,

    Hello Joshua,

    Try the following code. It does not give any problems with the latest build:

    <%@ Register Assembly="Telerik.Web.UI" Namespace="Telerik.Web.UI" TagPrefix="telerik" %>
    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "">
    <head id="Head1" runat="server">
        <script type="text/javascript">
            function ShowRadDock(dockID)
                var dock = $find(dockID);
            function HideRadDock(dock, args)
        <form id="form1" runat="server">
        <asp:ScriptManager ID="ScriptManager1" runat="server">
            <telerik:RadDockLayout ID="RadDockLayout1" runat="server">
                <telerik:RadDock ID="RadDock1" runat="server" Title="RadDock1" Text="RadDock1" Closed="true"
                    Style="z-index: 5" OnClientInitialize="ClientInitialize">
                        <br />
                        <br />
                        <asp:Button ID="Button1" runat="server" Text="Postback" />
                        <br />
                        <br />
                        <telerik:DockCloseCommand OnClientCommand="HideRadDock" />
            <input type="button" value="Show RadDock1" onclick="ShowRadDock('RadDock1')" />
            <asp:Button ID="Button2" runat="server" Text="Postback" />
        <script type="text/javascript">
            Telerik.Web.UI.RadDock.prototype.enableModalExtender = function()
                if (!this._modalExtender)
                    this._modalExtender = new Telerik.Web.UI.ModalExtender(this.get_element());
            Telerik.Web.UI.RadDock.prototype.disableModalExtender = function()
                if (this._modalExtender)
            Telerik.Web.UI.RadDock.prototype.dispose = function()
                if (this._modalExtender)
                    this._modalExtender = null;
                Telerik.Web.UI.RadDock.callBaseMethod(this, 'dispose');
            function ClientInitialize(dock, args)
                if (dock.get_closed() == false)
