    I have found the AutoHideWidth property to set the width of a hidden RadPane when the user puts their mouse over it.
    How do I set the width when the user pins the RadPane open?  When the user drags the pane to floating?
    Probably simple to do, but I couldn't find the relevant properties or methods in the documentation...
    Thanks for any hints....

    (When I click in the SizeChanged event in the Help collection -- "F:\Program Files\Telerik\RadControls for Silverlight Q3 2009 SP1\Documentation\ViewHelp.bat" -- I get this message:

    Hi C Bates,

     The RadPane doesn't have its own Width and Height, except when it is in the AutoHideArea - you correctly noticed that these properties control its Width and Height. In all of the other cases its absolute size is calculated in a complex manner - each item in a split container has a relative size.

    Hope this helps.

    All the best,

    Sorry Miroslav, but it doesn't help...

    I have the same problem: I have content of a RadPane of 400 Units width. I want that the Pane shows the whole content when I hover over it. This can be controlled with AutoHideWidth, but when the user pins the Pane or makes it floating, I want also the full width of 400 to be shown.

    Unfortunately in the current version of RadDocking it is not possible to persist the size of docked Panes to floating Panes and vice versa. When a RadPane or RadPaneGroups are being pinned, unpinned, floated or docked it is being moved to new RadSplitContainers in which process some of its properties are lost one of which is the AutoHideWidth. There is a logged feature request in our feedback portal for such built-in functional for RadDocking and you can vote for it and track it's status here.

    We will do our best to have this feature implemented as soon as possible.
