    We are using the RadDiagram for Telerik WPF. We have restricted the draggable area using the following link:

    But we also would like to restrict the area that the user is able to pan the diagram. It would be great if it wasn´t possible to pan away from the restricted draggable area. Is this possible, and if yes, how?

    I have tried to use PreviewPan but haven´t figured out if that is the way to go...

    Hi Jenny,

    You're on the right path with using PreviewPan, you can cancel a Pan operation by setting the Handled property of the PositionChangedRoutedEventArgs to true.

    Here's a simple example:

    private void Diagram_OnPreviewPan(object sender, PositionChangedRoutedEventArgs e)
        Point myRestrictedPoint = new Point(); 
        // If the pan operation is going to go where I don't want it to
        if (e.NewPosition.X > myRestrictedPoint.X || e.NewPosition.Y > myRestrictedPoint.Y)
            // Cancel and return
            e.Handled = true;

    This should get you what you're looking for. However, if it doesn't please open a Support Ticket here and share the reproducible project code with us so that we can investigate directly. Support Tickets carry a guaranteed response time from the UI for WPF support team (which is within 24 hours for your license).

    Thank you for choosing UI for WPF!
