Hi there,

I have objects inside a RadPane.  If the Group is unPinned to the side of the screen as a tab, I can no longer reference my objects using FindName.

Instead it returns a NULL result for my object.

PanelDesignerButtons

 

 

myPane = LayoutRoot.FindName("DesignerPanelButtons") as PanelDesignerButtons;

 

 

Any help is appreciated.

Thank you

Clinton

Hi Clinton,

This is because the content of the pane that is not currently selected or is in the auto hide area is not part of the visual tree. What I would suggest you is not to put names to the user controls but to the panes to find their contents.

Hope this information helps.
