    I have a requirement that multiple charts are to be displayed on a page each as a different web part where i can drag web parts to different locations and the state for the same has to be maintained in database so that the next time i open the page, the web part which was been dragged from say x to y location, should be visible on location y.

    1) Can the above requirement be accompolished using RadDocking control?
    2) Is the RadDocking conrol similar to Asp.Net Web Part Control?
    3) Can you please post some demos which are similar to the requirements mentioned above?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hello David,

    RadDocking for Silverlight/WPF is quite different than RadDock for ASP.NET - the Silverlight control is intended to create desktop-like interfaces similar to Visual Studio, while the ASP.NET control is used to create web intefraces similar to iGoogle.

    You can browse the demos of RadDocking for Silverlight here:

    As for your questions:
    1) RadDocking for Silverlight is able to contain only Silverlight content (controls and media). You could use RadHtmlPlaceholder control to put HTML inside RadDocking, but this approach has a lot of limitations and I would strongly recommend not doing it.
    2) No. The controls were designed to solve different problems and have different API.
    3) Please, check the online demos first, to understand what can be done with the control and then if you need specific example, we will gladly provide you with such.
