    The behavior of the RadPanelBarItem has changed in the Q3 release. It is now sizing to the content rather than the container. The result is a horizontally and vertically compressed set of bars when they are all closed. The width of all items will change according to the widest width of the open elements. The horizontal behavior no longer fills the vertical dimension.

    Some drag/drop operations broke in the Q2 release and I was hoping to get them working in Q3. It looks like I need to do more to get this working in Q3, but now I've got a new issue in the Q3 release. I appreciate Telerik's efforts to push new content out in each Q release, but is Telerik allowing these regressions in order to push content? Some of these issues, such as this RadPanelBarItem issue, seem like something that would be pretty hard to miss in testing. If so, then we won't have a chance of reaching stability.

    This post is similar to the preceding but that post related the issue to themes. I think the more general characterization should help others find this issue faster. If the forum moderator chooses to remove this post, I will understand.

    Edit: Here is a workaround:

            <telerik:RadPanelBarItem Header="Full Width PanelBarItem" Width="{Binding RelativeSource={RelativeSource FindAncestor, AncestorType={x:Type telerik:RadPanelBar}}, Path=ActualWidth}">

    Set any one of the PanelBarItem widths to that of the parent PanelBar and all widths will follow the width of the PanelBar. Leaving the vertical problem for later.

    Hi Scott,

     We first want to apologize for the inconvenience caused. We are aware of the horizontal/vertical compression bug that is introduced in our Q3 2011 official release.The good news is that it is resolved and you can use the internal build from this week.
    As for the drag and drop scenarios, since Q2 we introduced a new DragAndDropManager. Is it possible for you to elaborate more on your exact scenario so that we could advice you better.

    All the best,
