Hello


I am in the trial period right now and want to make sure of the distinction between the tabs created by the RadPaneGroup and the TabControl.

  • Would the RadPaneGroup be databound like the tabcontrol is? Is it used for a different purpose then the tabcontrol?
  • It seems that the RadPaneGroup is used inside of a Docking control, correct? is this the only correct place?


Thanks! These controls have been great to work with!

Hello Harold,

The RadPaneGroup inherits from the RadTabControl so it works pretty much the same way as the RadTabControl. It has some more functionality connected with the RadDocking control and it needs to be used in this control to work correctly. To summarize - if you need to use the control separately and/ or data bound - use RadTabControl and to create layout for other controls that allows the user to change it by drag&drop - use the RadDocking control with SplitContainers and PaneGroups in it.

Hope this helps.

All the best,
