    Can you list any advantages / disadvantages of using RadDock over WebParts?

    Does SiteFinity use RadDock?

    Well I RadDock is definitely nothing like a web part, in the sense that it doesn't allow you to edit the content it contains, which is what I'm assuming your asking since you mention SiteFinity. The only thing RadDock does is allow you to create a portal like page and move your content around.

    I believe SiteFinity uses the RadDock, RadWindow and RadEditor controls to achieve its CMS functionality.

    Hello Eddie,

    The WebParts provide the following features out of the box:
    • Adding new WebParts to the page
    • Editing the content of a WebPart
    • Binding WebParts

    These features are not built-in within the RadDock control but can be easily implemented. The following examples demonstrate how to dynamically create widgets and save their state to DB:

    Moreover the RadDock provides:
    • [Live] resize functionality
    • Rich client-side API
    • Animations
    • Smooth drag and drop
    • Cross-browser compatibility
    • 13 built-in Skins

    All these features and more can be observed on our online demos website: http://demos.telerik.com/aspnet-ajax/dock/examples/overview/defaultcs.aspx.

    Sincerely yours,
    the Telerik team
