    While we can move controls contained inside LayoutControl by selecting them and using the keyboard arrow keys it appears it is not possible to move them using the mouse since LayoutControl tries to automatically create a new section as soon as you start dragging a control with your mouse instead of allowing you to reposition the control within the existing section it is currently in. However, only when you use the mouse to move the controls the alignment lines show allowing you to align your controls more easily.

    Why is it and is there a way to move the controls inside the LayoutControl with the mouse without LayoutControl automatically adding new sections?

    Hi Dean,

    Thank you for writing.

    RadLayoutControl automatically arranges the dragged control in a section. This can be performed at design-time as well as at run-time using the Customize Dialog. If I have understood correctly you are moving the LayoutControlLabelItems e.g. in design-time using the keyboard. Please note that this should not be performed because this is not the way the control is intended to be used.

    I hope this information is useful. Should you have further questions please do not hesitate to write back.
