    I would like users to be able to rename the name of a dock panel by clicking on the title tab, and having the click change the mode of the tab to an edit template containing a text box which is databound to my view's "Name" property.

    Can you please explain how I can accomplish this?

    Hello George,

    I have a similar requirement as mentioned by Jon. I went through the links that you have given, but am still wondering how changing the header template would work.
    My requirement is that when user selects/clicks on the tab the title turns into editable textbox. But in case I add a textbox in header template, it shows up even when user is not clicking on header i.e. user is working on the body part of RadPane.

    Hello George,

    Could you please elaborate more on your suggestions regarding Jon's query?
    I went through the links provided by you but am not clear about how can Header Template be changed to a Textboxon click of Header of a RadPane. When the RadPane Header is not selected the template should be having TextBlock.

    Hello Everybody,

     What Georgi suggested was to change the HeaderTemplate and to place there some more complex control that will do this logic - will show a TextBox when clicked and hide it when unfocused. Placing just a TextBox will make the header editable all the time.

    Kind regards,
