    The radpanegroup has an option, OverflowMode, which derives from the tabcontrol.  This property, when set, does nothing.  I would expect that it would behave as the tabcontrol does.  When a radpanegroup has too many radpanes, the radpanes just start getting smaller and smaller.  Is there a workaround for this?  We really need the ability to have the tabs wrap to a new line.  I looked at the template for the documenthost and tried to replace the ItemPresenterElement with a WrapPanel but it did not work.  Any suggestions?

    Hello David Schulz,

    We have implemented a VisualStudio like scroll and drop down menu. I think that solution would work for you. It's not yet released to the public but will be available soon.

    Thank you for your interest in our controls.

    All the best,
    the Telerik team

    Hello Panayot,
                           I am working on the same behaviour of tabs in docking to be wraped when the the overflowmmode has been set to wrap. For scrolling it is working but I need tabs to be wrapped. I have seen the template for the control and it is using ItemsPresenter for tabs header. I am not sure if I could make them wrap able. Alternately if telerik has fixed this issue then let me know or Is it still missing  with the functionality or I need to set some more properties in this respect. Can you please suggest in this regard thanks.

    The RadDocking's RadPaneGroup inherits from a RadTabControl but overrides the ItemsPaneltemplate. You can simply set the template in implicit style for RadPaneGroup in the app.xaml like that:

            <Style TargetType="telerik:RadPaneGroup">
                <Setter Property="ItemsPanel">
                            <telerikNavigationPrimitives:TabWrapPanel />

    And the panes will wrap.
