So If i have lots of group, the horizontal axis gets full with the square 4x4 groups, but the vertacal axis has lots of empty space.
I could break the squareness of the groups to make them longer in the vertical axis, but that seems a bit ugly.
However, I cannot seem to find a way to put a group under another group, therefore utilising both the X and Y dimensions well.
Can it be done?
--Group 1-- --Group2--

I am not quite sure that I understand your scenario very well. Can you please confirm the control you are using and also provide us with more details about your local setup?
Oh god, I apologise. I confused the RadDock with the RadPanorama. My question was supposed to be on the Panorama forum, not this one. Could you please move the thread there? (If it isn't possible, I could re-post the question there)
I also took some pictures to demonstrate what I want to achieve - the pictures are very crude, but I think they are enough to demonstrate my thinking.
Thank you for writing back.
The groups in RadPanorama are arranged horizontally and this behavior is desired. It is possible to, however, change the orientation of the element holding the groups to be vertical. This way you could have two groups positioned one above the other:
The Orientation property will allow you to have either Horizontal or Vertical layout. Currently, it is not possible to have groups arranged horizontally and vertically at the same time. A possible solution to achieve this is to use two separate RadPanorama controls. I am attaching two screenshots showing the groups oriented vertically and also a grid-like layout using two separate controls.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
I see, thank you.
I'd really like to see an orientation of horizontal+vertical.
The workaround would technically work, but it would complicate things if I wanted to put a background picture or stuff like that.
I can make do with the horizontal orientation, of course.
But if there's somewhere to vote for support for grid-like behaviour where we could have both, please guide me to it so I can vote it up.
When implementing the RadPanorama controls we followed the Metro design in Windows 8. That is why the panorama was implemented with a single orientation which is by default set to Horizontal. A mixed mode can be achieved with two separate controls. We have a feedback portal, where you can submit your suggestion: https://feedback.telerik.com/winforms. Considering that there has not been a demand for such a feature it is not likely that it will be implemented soon.
Let me know if you have other questions.
