Hi Srinivas,

To show icon on RadPane's header you should use the HeaderTemplate property of the RadPane.
The attached example demonstrates the approach.

Hope this helps.

Hi Srinivas,

I would suggest you to create a project for your resources that will be referenced by all of your projects. Inside it you can create a ResourceDictionary with an implicit style for your RadPanes. After this you can merge this dictionary into all of your projects so all your RadPanes will have the icon you want.

In order to achieve the pin functionality on click you will have to write custom code into your class that inherits RadPane.
protected override void OnMouseUp(System.Windows.Input.MouseButtonEventArgs e)
{
    base.OnMouseUp(e);
  
    if (!this.IsPinned)
    {
        this.IsPinned = true;
    }
}


All the best,

Hi Srinivas,

You have to create a new project holding a implicit style targeting RadPanes that sets the RadPane's HeaderTemplate. After this you will have to merge this style in every project using RadDocking. You can find an example attached.
