    When I create windows I'm restricting their position so that the window never gets too far off the browser. I'm allowing it to move up to 75% of its size, except the top that is 0.

    Code below:

    double width = window.MinWidth == 0 || window.MinWidth == double.NaN ?
                        (window.Width == 0 || window.Width == double.NaN ? window.Width : window.MaxWidth) : window.MinWidth;
                double height = window.MinHeight == 0 || window.MinHeight == double.NaN ?
                    (window.Height == 0 || window.Height == double.NaN ? window.Height : window.MaxHeight) : window.MinHeight;
                window.RestrictedAreaMargin = new Thickness(-width * RestrictedWidthFactor, 0, -width * RestrictedWidthFactor, -height * RestrictedHeightFactor);
                window.IsRestricted = true;

    RestrictedWidthFactor = 0.75 and RestrictedHeightFactor = 0.75. Usually the Thickness object ends up with -8xx, 0, -8xx, -5xx.
    When I maximize the window the Left position stays at -8xx instead of 0, so the window appears almost half off the screen and because it is maximized we cannot move it. Am I doing something wrong? To fix the issue I register for the WindowStateChanged event and when Maximized I set the Left property to 0 and it works fine. 

    Best regards,

    Manuel Felício.

    Hi Manuel,

     The RadWindow control uses the RestrictedAreaMargin property to determine its maximized state size and position, so the negative values of your restricted area margins cause this problem. The work-around you use is exactly what I was about to suggest you.

    Hello Muhammad,

    This behavior of the RadWindow control was changed as it was considered not correct. We have an item in PITS for adding a property for switching between the two modes, but it is not scheduled yet. You could vote for it if you need this behavior.
