    I have an interesting scenario, which comes to play on PCs with small resolution.
    I have 3 RadDockZones, and the content is placed within the first two.
    I also have a RadToolbar which extands 100%.
    However when user drag and drops it to the 3rd column, the width of the toolbar does not extand to fill up the now created white space. The only way I was able to fix it, but that is not the solution is to set the width to let's say 120%.
    So is there a way, to extand/shrink the RadToolBar based on the drag and dropping that is taking place? Thanks.

    Hi Martin,

    I prepared a sample project for you that implements two RadDockZones, one with Width=300px and the other with Width=600px. In the first zone (with Width=300px) there is a dock that contains a ToolBar with the Width property set to 100%. I dragged and dropped the dock in the second zone and the dock together with the toolbar extended to fill up the zone. I also tested it under 800x600 resolution and again everything was fine. Here is the full source code:

    <%@ Page Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeBehind="Default.aspx.cs" Inherits="DockToolbarMovement._Default" %> 
    <%@ Register Assembly="Telerik.Web.UI" Namespace="Telerik.Web.UI" TagPrefix="telerik" %> 
    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" ""> 
    <html xmlns=""
    <head runat="server"
        <form id="form1" runat="server"
        <asp:ScriptManager ID="ScriptManager1" runat="server"
            <telerik:RadDockLayout ID="RadDockLayout2" runat="server"
            <telerik:RadDockLayout ID="RadDockLayout1" runat="server"
                <telerik:RadDockZone ID="RadDockZone1" runat="server" Height="300px" Width="300px" 
                    Style="float: left; margin-right: 20px;"
                    <telerik:RadDock ID="RadDock1" runat="server" Width="300px"
                                    <telerik:RadToolBar ID="mainToolBar" runat="server" Width="100%"
                                           <telerik:RadToolBarButton Text="1"></telerik:RadToolBarButton> 
                                           <telerik:RadToolBarButton Text="2"></telerik:RadToolBarButton> 
                <telerik:RadDockZone ID="RadDockZone2" runat="server" Height="300px" Width="600px" 
                    Style="float: left;"

    In order to reproduce your scenario, can you please open a support ticket and send us the source code of your project and a couple of screenshots when your project is running?
