Hello!
I need an event for changing the docking orientation of a RadPane.
The purpose of it is that I need to have a layout if the RadPane is docked left or right and a different layout if it is docked on top or bottom, and I want to rearrange it (or at least change the orientation of the content)  whenever the user feels to modify the position of the pane.
How can I achieve this?

Thank you!
Roxana

Hi Roxana ,

You could use the PaneStateChanged event of the Docking control - it is raised whenever a RadPane changes its state. Please refer to the following sample code (the RadDocking_PaneStateChanged method is an event handler for the PaneStateChanged event):
private void RadDocking_PaneStateChange(object sender, Telerik.Windows.RadRoutedEventArgs e)
{
    var pane = e.OriginalSource as RadPane;
    pane.Dispatcher.BeginInvoke(() => pane.Content = FindPanePosition(pane));
}
 
private static DockState? FindPanePosition(RadPane pane)
{
    if (pane.IsFloating)
    {
        return pane.IsDockable ? DockState.FloatingDockable : DockState.FloatingOnly;
    }
 
    var p = pane.Parent as ISplitItem;
 
    if (p == null)
    {
        // The pane is in AutoHideArea
        return null;
    }
 
    var container = p.ParentContainer;
    while (container != null)
    {
        p = container;
        container = p.ParentContainer;
    }
 
    container = p as RadSplitContainer;
    return RadDocking.GetDockState(container);
}

Hope this helps.

It's true, the PaneStateChange event was the answer to my question, thank you!
But the RadDocking.GetDockState(container) method always returns the same value equal with the InitialPosition no matter where the container is docked.

Actually after more debug I found out that theRadDocking.GetDockState(container) method always returns the same value equal with the DockedLeft no matter where the container is docked OR the InitialPosition

Hi Roxana Cocariu,

 The RadDocking.GetDockState method gets the value of the RadDocking.DockStateProperty attached property of the provided dependency object. In order to find its actual placement you should get the value of this property from the root-most split container. Please refer to the FindPanePosition method I sent in the previous post.

Kind regards,

Yes, I am referring to the FindPanePosition method and if the pane is not floating, the result is always the same
(DockedLeft )

Hello Roxana,

 I think I cannot clearly understand what you need. The code I sent you works just fine at my side - could you please send me a screen-shot or video what is wrong and how you think it should be - this should help me better understand what you need.

Best wishes,

            Trace.WriteLine( "Dock state => " + ds ); 
        } 
    } 
 


Every time you change the docking position of the left or right pane (move they to either top, bottom, left, right) in the output will be printed the same value "Dock state => DockedLeft" ( and Dock state => FloatingDockable if the pane is not docked on any position). I need somehow to retrieve DockedBottom if I move it to the bottom of the RadDocking and so on for different positions

I hope I was more clear this time.
Thx! Roxana

Hello Roxana Cocariu,

Sorry for the late response. Actually we have found an issue concerning this type of RadDocking functionality. We are working on its resolving, and hopefully it will be ready for the Q1 2010 official release.

Hi,

I am experiencing the same behaviour as described above (code always returns DockedLeft). Has this been resolved? Is there a different method to use now? I'm using RadControls WPF Q2 2010 SP1.

Thanks,
Lee

EDIT: I found another post that had the same code but that was invoking the call to FindPanePosition through the Dispatcher - and this makes all the difference.

Hello Lee,

In the loaded event handler use the following code:

var position = radPane.ParentOfType<RadSplitContainer>().InitialPosition;

All the best,
