    So I am new to Telerik Winform. I had amazing experience using Telerik. But what I still don't get it is how to use the RadLayoutControl.

    As far as my understanding, RadLayoutControl provide a customize layout template design method completed by user drag and drop controls on the LayoutControl object (what I called layer 1).

    My questions is when I wanted to place a control on top of a control that already top of a Layout control(which I called layer 2), system treat my intention as I want to place another Layer 2 control which I wanted that control to be placed on layer (e.g. place a control on collapsible panel).

    Do I misunderstand the purpose of layoutcontrol?


    Sorry for my bad english.

    Hello Li,

    Thank you for writing us. 

    RadLayoutControl gives you easier and quicker way to create complex layouts with drag and drop of controls at design time. The control will automatically keep the layout consistent and gives the end-user an easy way to customize and rearrange the controls at run time.   

    RadLayoutControl allows adding a collapsible or tabbed group. More information about built-in-in items can be found here: LayoutControl >> Items.

    In the attachments you can find a gif demonstrating how to add groups in RadLayoutControl at run time. If this is not what you want to achieve, I would kindly ask you to send me a more detailed explanation what  it is your business case and requirements. If it is easier for you, you can send us a video which demonstrates the issue on your side. You can use Jing (a free tool) for capturing the video. 

    I am looking forward to your reply.
