I have a pane that's docked and unpinned.  If it's visible (expanded), how can I force it to collapse (as if the user had clicked their mouse in another window or changed the focus).  Setting dock's ActivePane property to null seems to have no effect.

The reason for this is because a modal RadWindow (or Alert) is shown beneath the expanded pane.  I need a workaround for this bug.

We're using version 2011.2.712.1040

Thanks

Hi Michael,

We've tested the described scenario and setting ActivePane works at our side. Also you could try setting IsHidden property of the unpinned pane.

Won't 'IsHidden' make the unpinned window completely disappear?  We still want the window to be available when the modal dialog is closed.

In your test, make sure you don't select the unpinned window (by clicking on its titlebar for example).  If you select it with the mouse, the problem doesn't occur.  We make the unpinned window appear in code when it's required:

view.DockingPanel.ActivePane = pane;
pane.IsSelected = true;

Next, do a ShowDialog on a new rad window

I see this behavior (attached)

Hello Michael,

You're right about IsHidden property - I'm sorry for my confusion.

Actually this issue is already fixed in the Q2 SP release, could you please download it and give it a try?

All the best,

Hello Yana,

I am also facing same problem. I read this thread and upgraded to latest version but I am getting same behaviour. When I do Pane.IsHidden = true, it completely disappear from pane group. I also do RadDocking.ActivePane = null but no effect.

I posted question to telerik but there I ask in different way. But in actual, I got the same behaviour as described here in this thread.

Hi Thomas,

This was a specific case, that's why we didn't post it in the forums.
Please send us more details about your scenario and/or some sample code, so we to be able to reproduce the issue. Thanks

Kind regards,

I had the same Problem... When I put a Button on the unpinned Pane and open a File Save Dialog from this button, the System Dialog and all ist Message Boxes appear below the RadPane... which is not the best.

My solution is:

if (_pane.IsPinned == false) {

 _pane.IsHidden = true;

 _pane.IsHidden = false;

}

Dispatcher.CurrentDispatcher.BeginInvoke(new Action(() => Foo(...)));

Nice greetings,
Markus

Hello Markus,

I have tried to reproduce this issue in a simple project, but without much success, you can find the test project I've used attached to this thread. Could you please download it and give it a try? What is different in your case? Can you modify it and send it back to us? Note that you should open a support ticket and attach it there.

Hello Yana,

Sorry for the confusion, but my Project is a WPF project... (See Support Ticket...)

Here you can make one of the panes containing the Button "Press me" Floating and then press the Button. The File Open Dialog opens below the Floating Pane...

Kind regards,
Markus
