By default, the tabs for the RadDocumentPane appear at the top of the window - for normal Panes, they appear at the bottom. I'd like the RadDocumentPane tabs to also appear at the bottom. I thought the following XAML would do the trick, but it seems not to:
Thanks in advance.

The TabStripPlacement property is not supported in RadDocking control. For more information about not supported properties, please refer to our online documentation - http://www.telerik.com/help/wpf/not-supported-properties.html.
Sorry for any inconvenience caused.

Thanks for the response. Is there an easy way to do what I want? From what I've read, it seems I need to create a custom Template for my DocumentPanes, and this requires the use of ExpressionBlend, which I don't have access to.
Is there a more simple quick and easy way to change the tab placement position to the bottom? I don't mind editing Telerik source code to get this done if needs be.
The easiest way to accomplish this is using a custom template for RadDocking. Could you please specify which theme you use? If you want, I could send you the RadDocking theme for you so you could easily edit it.

Thanks for the xml file. Would it be possible to point me to the line I need to edit, and to tell me what I then have to do with this xml file to use it in my solution?
I've managed to get the behviour I wanted by searching the Telerik source files for all instances of PaneGroupDocumentTemplate in the Telerik source code, and changing round the Grid.Row properties of the ContentControl and TabStrip in each one, then recompiling the source code.
Thanks for the help
I want to do something like show RadDocumentPane tabs and be able to organize them among the docking stations.
Then have the tab templates be customized with an ImageSource and TextBlock.
At the moment the best I've been able to do is have the TitleTemplate customized. Our XAML is like this, but I'm sure this needs to be fleshed out a bit.
Bearing in mind my working knowledge of docking is somewhat clumsy at the moment.
If you want to add some custom elements to the pane header, I would suggest using the RadPane.HeaderTemplate property. Here is a detailed article which describes how to achieve this - http://www.telerik.com/help/wpf/raddocking-how-to-add-icon-pane-header.html

As Tom wanted to customize RadDocumentPane header placement to be at the bottom to match them with the RadPanes, while I want the exact opposite of this.
I want to place the normal RadPanes tab to be on the top in place of their Header, I want to remove the header, and just want the tab to act as Pane header.
Please let me know which is the easiest way to achieve this.
By default, the TabStripPlacement of RadPaneGroup is Bottom. You can set it to Top.
You can check the result in the attached snapshot. Please let us know if your requirement is different.
Thank you for helping me out, but using this approach the pin/unpin button of RadPane has become invisible, and is not available anywhere. Like close button is available in RadPane's tab state how pin/unpin button can be available.
To add this button next to tabs, you need to edit the control template of RadDocking, more specifically, the ControlTemplate named PaneGroupTopTemplate. You need to add button with the following definition:
