I add and remove RadPanes from my DocumentHost in code.  When I add or remove a panel I want to animate it i.e. slide the panel in or out from the right.  Is there a code example posted that will tell me how to do that using Animation Manager?


Thanks,

Sam

Hello Keith,

At the moment it is not supported to add an animation to the RadPane when it is added.

What I could suggest is to add an animation for the whole PaneGroup for each time the selected pane is changed - it will appear also when adding a pane (the new pane is selected when this happens) or when closing a pane (the currently selected pane is removed, so it is deselected). Unfortunately you cannot easily add animation only for opening/closing of a pane.

To achieve this you need to edit the ControlTemplate of the RadPaneGroup and to replace the ContentPresenter that presents the SelectedContent with a RadTransitionControl - it supports slick animations. For more information about how to use the TransitionControl into the ControlTemplate of a TabControl (the RadPaneGroup is actually a TabControl) you could refer to the following article - http://blogs.telerik.com/blogs/posts/10-05-12/using_transitions_with_radtransitioncontrol_and_transitionpresenter_in_radtabcontrol.aspx

Hope this helps!

Thank you for your reply.  The link you posted gives a 404 error:

I pasted it into notepad to find invalid characters but it still does not work sorry.
