    Hi All
    I have a pane which is dockable and after docking I have set it to autoHide and my application looks good. When I mouseover the hidden pane it pops up  and I am expanding it. It is not closing if I move my mouse to other parts of the application. If I click somewhere in the application then it is hiding. Basically once I click outside the pane it is hiding. But I have some options in this pane . Whenever i select a option I am showing a confirmation dialog. Since this pane is not hiding, my dialog box is showing under this pane like the attached image.
    Any suggestion on how to resolve this issue is much appreciated.

    Hi Rakesh,

    In WPF all Popups are shown at the top of the application above all windows and MessageBoxes. RadDocking's AutoHide area is a Popup and when it is visible and you try to open Window, it is placed behind the Popup. Unfortunately we cannot do anything to reorder the positions, this is a Framework behavior. The only workaround is to use a new Popup for your confirmation dialog instead of using MessageBox or Window. This Popup will be shown on the top of the AutoHide area.

    We are really sorry for the caused inconvenience. Feel free to contact us in case you have any problems or concerns.
