I am trying to get my feet wet with Telerik's controls as we are poised to get the Premium Package.  I found a nice How To video here(Brian Lagunas) that is very applicable to my environment however I am struggling to use Telerik's controls as the video maker uses Infragistics.  The key sticking point is the below.

<telerik:RadRibbonWindow x:Class="IgOutlook.Shell"
        Title="Shell" Height="300" Width="300" xmlns:telerik="">
    <telerik:RadRibbonView Name="radRibbonView1" prism:RegionManager.RegionName="RibbonTabRegion">       
            <telerik:ApplicationMenu />
            <telerik:QuickAccessToolBar />
    <DockPanel LastChildFill="True">
            <telerik:RadOutlookBar DockPanel.Dock="Left" Width="200" prism:RegionManager.RegionName="OutlookBarGroupRegion" />
            <ContentControl prism:RegionManager.RegionName="ContentRegion" Margin="1,3,3,3" />

In his video there is a control for "Ribbon Window Content Host" that doesn't seem to have a counterpart in Telerik.  The code above gives me a design time exception of "The Property Content is set more then once".

Can anyone show me what I am doing wrong or missing?  This app is meant to be a proof of concept so I can justify to my boss purchasing this tool set.

Hi Patrick,

The RadRibbonWindow derives from Window so it is a ContentControl and can have a single element for it's content (as every other ConentControl and Window) so you should simply use some root panel to wrap all your other elements (i.e. you can use Grid).
