Hi,

the first question is: Is there a two level compass support over the document host, that allows to dock a pane exactly beneath the document host (not inside it and not at the root element?) See visual studio. Just try to move a control bar over their document host area. There you get the possibility to dock on each side inside the document host and outside of it.

This is needed for scenarios like here http://www.telerik.com/help/wpf/media/RadDocking_GettingStarted_GettingStarted_110.png

Assume the ErrorList pane does not exist and you float the Output pane and want to redock it at the same location again. This would be easy in Visual Studio. Just hover over the document host and select the "outside document host" option.

I assume the answer will be: Not supported
So here is the second question: Is it possible to write an own template for the compass?

Hi Arthur,

Thank you for contacting us.

Indeed the described two level DocumetnHost compass is not available in the current version of RadDocking. It is possible to customize the template of the compasses but unfortunately it is not possible to wire those custom templates in such a way to achieve the described docking of RadPane instances. The reasons is because such docking logic is not implemented in the code of the control.

As we see that such feature would be useful to be present in the control we will do our best to implement it in one of out future versions of the control. We logged this feature request in our feedback portal where you can vote of it and track its status.

Regards,
