    Like many developers who are using Prism in their application, I am using a UserControl inherited from a RadPane as my view. This breaks the designer in VS (same issue in Blend for VS).

    I see this issue in PITS, Creating RadPane as a UserControl breaks design time and no matter what you try to put as content it doesn't show, is marked as resolved, but there is no indication of any solution.

    I can accept that it might be an issue in VS itself, rather than with the control suite. If this is the case, are there any issues on Microsoft's Connect site that I can reference? If not, and it is an issue in the Telerik controls, is there any word of a solution or workaround?

    Unfortunately after further investigation of the issue it seems that this is an expected behavior when RadPane is set as UserControl. Because of technical issues the PITS issue was set to resolved rather then canceled. By itself outside of the Docking control the RadPane is the header tab in which the Header text is visualized and its content is not shown in the designer as it is outside of the RadPane. When you placed Panes in the Docking control the content of the Pane is visualized correctly because the content is placed in the Docking control itself. Because of this reason the PITS issue was canceled.

    We apologize for any inconvenience that this maybe causing.
