    I am using multiple docking panes in my page, but would like the tabs for the main document host tabs to be placed on the left instead of the top.  Is this possible?  I have tried setting the TabStripPlacement="Left", but it doesn't do anything.

    <telerik:RadDocking x:Name="radDocking" telerik:StyleManager.Theme="Windows7" Unpin="radDocking_Unpin" Pin="radDocking_Pin" AllowUnsafeMode="True" Opacity="0.95" Margin="0,0,0,0" VerticalAlignment="Top">



    <telerik:RadPaneGroup x:Name="radTabs" TabStripPlacement="Left" TabOrientation="Horizontal" AllTabsEqualHeight="True" Background="White" Margin="0" SelectedIndex="1" TabIndex="0" Align="Left" HorizontalContentAlignment="Center">

    <telerik:RadPane HeaderTemplate="{StaticResource TabHeader}" Header="Policy Information" x:Name="tabPolicyInfo" Margin="0,0,2,0" CanUserClose="False" CanFloat="False" IsSelected="True">

    Hello Lana,

    The TabStripPlacement is inherited property from the Tab Control and it is not supported by the Docking control. Unfortunately, this cannot be achieved with the current implementation of the control.
    Sorry for the caused inconvenience.

    What about this "implementation" 5 YEARS later?

    Hi Mathieu,

    As mentioned in the previous response the TabStripPlacement property is inherited by the RadTabControl and it is not implemented in the RadPaneGroup's source code so it doesn't work with the control. However, in order to achieve the desired effect you can modify the default Template of RadDocking.

    In order to make the document panes look like as desired we should modify the DocumentHostTemplate of the RadDocumentPane to mimic the PaneBottomTemplate instead of PaneDocumentHostTemplate. Please, check the attached sample that demonstrates that approach - the sample uses Implicit Styles

    Hope this helps.
