    May I know is there any plan to Ribbonbar and dock for WPF? If yes, when can we have it? Please advice.

    Hello,

    We don't have a WPF RibbonBar in our plans for the near future. WPF Docking control, however, is very likely to be introduced with Q3 2009, near the end of the year.

    Just a couple of questions here...

    1) Is there any chance the docking comes in Q2?  We are starting a new application and want to have dockable windows for our WPF application.
    2) Why is there no ribbon bar for the WPF planned?  The ribbon bar is the UI that Microsoft is backing so that means it is most likely the UI of the future.  AND WPF is the future UI platform for forms development.  These two just seem to marry together.  Can the Windows Form Ribbon bar be hosted in the WPF application?  Are there problems with this?

    Thanks,
    LK

    I don't understand how you do not have this on your road map if your competitors have already released a version.  I know that my company is always looking out for what our competitors are doing next so that we can at stay ahead or at least keep up.



    As another note, both companies already have the docking functionality released for WPF as well.  I am not by any means promoting these companies as I have had great success with telerik.  But sometimes I just find it hard to believe the lines that come from the telerik forums.  Please let me know if there is anyway to have these functionalities pushed higher on the priority list (or even put on there to begin with).

    Thanks,
    LK

    Hello lkeel,

    We will be definitely working on these controls during the Q3 release. We already logged them in the To-Do list with a higher priority. We might event launch a beta version several weeks before the official Q3 release so that we will be able to gather valuable feedback from customers like you.

    Thank you for your reply.  I am VERY glad to hear this has been bumped in your priority.  I can't wait to get these new controls and start working with them.

    Thanks again!

    I need to weigh in here as well. I am being pressured to look at Infragistics for this exact reason. We need WPF docking and are also interested in seeing a ribbon that renders like Windows 7 / Office 2010.

    We are also looking for a WPF Ribbon Bar - could you provide us a beta?

    If you can't we need to buy another controls collection - but that wouldn't be really nice!

    seems like Free Team Management Tools is using ribbon bar and also docking. Just wondering can we have a copy of it? at least it will help us to create the test and demo version while waiting fro the Q3. Please advice.

    Hello Ching-Yen,

    The ribbon and dock controls in the tfs manager are not Telerik's. We will release a beta of docking for WPF next week and also a Silverlight version of the ribbon. The WPF version of the ribbon is scheduled for middle of October.

    All the best,

    Hi Ching-Yen,

    telerik isn't using their own docking or ribbon in their application.

    You can get the docking called "AvalaonDock" here:

    http://www.codeplex.com/AvalonDock/

    And the ribbon called "Odyssey RibbonBar" here:

    http://www.codeproject.com/KB/WPF/OdysseyRibbonBar.aspx (out of the odyssey controls collection: http://odyssey.codeplex.com/ )

    kind regards,

    johannes

    Hi,

    Thanks for the reply.  I was actually looking for the updated RadControls for WPF, not for SilverLight.  Is there an update to WPF that includes the new controls?

    Many thanks

    Hello jay,

    RadDocking for WPF is now available as part of Beta 1 for RadControls for WPF. Again, you have to log into your account and download the files under Your Account/Free Trials/RadControls for WPF section.
    The files are marked with Q3 2009 Beta in the download name.


    RadRibbonBar for WPF is not available yet for download. It will be included in Beta 2 release due on 14th of October.

    Let me know if you have other questions.
