Using the RadControls for WinForms Dock Visual Studio IDE example program simply do the following:
Drag the RadButton Toolbox onto the Document panel.

The Toolbox is now shown as a Document and it is not possible to drag it back to where it was before the move.

Found the answer myself:

The context menu (right click on the tab) contains more entries than the normal document windows one of which is "Floating".
Selecting this function returns it back into a Toolbox window.

Hello Bob,

Thank you for writing. I am glad to hear that you managed to find the answer to your question.

At the time we introduced RadDock for WinForms only Visual Studio 2008 had its official version. While implementing RadDock we were following the behavior of this particular VS version and this is why you are not able to dock a ToolWindow (by a drag and drop operation) after it was previously placed in the documents area.

Not that Visual Studio 2010 is a fact, we can reconsider the current RadDock behavior. You can find a PITS item for this task here.

I hope this helps. 

All the best,
Nikolay
