    We've upgraded recently to the most recent Q2 version of the controls.
    There appears to be a bug. It deals with the Rad Dock.
    Here is what happens, unlike before in the Q1 version






    are now handled by Dock's OnClientCommand handler.
    This is fine, but in that handler I have no idea if I am closing the doc or opening, because the boolean parameter is not available, which causes a problem since we have the following:




    (cmd.get_name() == "Close" )
        do some work...
    I never had this issue before because OnClientCommand was only hit when the user pressed the X button on the Dock.
    Please help, as we

    Hello Martin,

    I believe you know that it can be checked whether the dock is closed or not, by calling the dock.get_closed() method which returns a boolean value. I have implemented a sample project that dynamically closes and opens a RadDock. Everything is working fine and messages are displayed to notify the user whether the dock is closed or opened. This is the source code:

    <%@ Register Assembly="Telerik.Web.UI" Namespace="Telerik.Web.UI" TagPrefix="telerik" %> 
    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

    <head id="Head1" runat="server"
        <script type="text/javascript"
            function OnClientCommand(dock, args) 
                alert("Command pressed: " + args.command.get_name()); 
                if (dock.get_closed()) 
                    alert("You have closed the dock"); 
                    alert("You have opened the dock"); 
            function GetClosed() 
                var dock = $find("RadDock1"); 
                alert("Is Dock Closed: " + dock.get_closed()); 
            function ReOpenDock() 
                var dock = $find("RadDock1"); 
                if (dock.get_closed()) 
            function CloseDock() 
                var dock = $find("RadDock1"); 
                if (dock.get_closed() == false) 
        <form id="form1" runat="server"
        <asp:ScriptManager ID="ScriptManager1" runat="server"
