    As i know about DockMode had 3 modes with: default, Docked, & floating..
    Is it possible for RadDock to enable drag and reset to default position after client-side loading without postBack?
    And any setting to mention for it to reset back to default position?

    Hello Yet,

    If I understand you correctly, you want to be able to store original position of RadDock before dragging it and restore it at certain point. To do so, you need to handler RadDock's ClientDragStart client-side event and get its top a left position, e.g.:
    <telerik:RadDock ID="RadDock1" runat="server" OnClientDragStart="dockDragStart">
            Some<br />
            Sample<br />
    <asp:HiddenField ID="dockPositionHolder" runat="server" />
    <asp:Button Text="Restore position" runat="server" OnClientClick="restoreDockPosition(); return false;" />
    <script type="text/javascript">
        function dockDragStart(dock, args)
            var posStr = "{\"top\": "+ dock.get_top()+",\"left\": "+dock.get_left()+"}"; //JSON formatted data to be stored
            $get("<%=dockPositionHolder.ClientID %>").value = posStr;
        function restoreDockPosition()
            var posObj = $telerik.$.parseJSON($get("<%=dockPositionHolder.ClientID %>").value);//get the JSON data as JavaScript object
            var dock = $find("<%=RadDock1.ClientID %>"); //get reference to the RadDock client-side object
                //set dock's original position

    Kind regards,
