    Is there a way to prevent a sliding pane from collapsing when it's undocked? I'd like to be able to undock an expanded sliding pane and have it stay where it's at, however I can't find an easy way to achieve that. Any suggestions?

    Hi Sylvain,

    I already answered your support ticket on the subject. For convenience I will paste my answer here as well:

    By design, when a sliding pane is docked it is collapsed. In order to expand it when undocking you need to attach handler to the OnClientBeforeUndock client-side event of the sliding pane and expand it using the sliding zone's expandPane() method, e.g.:
    <telerik:radsplitter ID="RadSplitter1" runat="server">
        <telerik:RadPane ID="RadPane1" runat="server">
            <telerik:RadSlidingZone ID="RadSlidingZone1" runat="server" ClickToOpen="true" SlideDuration="0">
                <telerik:RadSlidingPane ID="RadSlidingPane1" runat="server" OnClientBeforeUndock="OnClientBeforeUndock"></telerik:RadSlidingPane>
    <script type="text/javascript">
        function OnClientBeforeUndock(sender, args)
            var slidingZone = $find("<%=RadSlidingZone1.ClientID%>");//get reference to the sliding zone
            setTimeout(function ()//set timeout to ensure that the calcualtions are finished
                slidingZone.expandPane(sender.get_id());//expand undocking pane
            }, 0);

    Please let us know if this helps.
