    I'm currently using a unpinned pane that has a context menu.  When you hover over the header, the pane shows up.  Then right click on the grid view row so the context menu pops up. The pane goes away.  Is there a way to keep it open while the context menu is open?

    Here's the XAML:

    <Window x:Class="DockingTest.MainWindow"
            <Style x:Key="ContextMenuStyle" TargetType="telerik:RadContextMenu">
                <Setter Property="FontSize" Value="11" />
            <telerik:RadContextMenu x:Key="contextMenuCode" Style="{StaticResource ContextMenuStyle}">
                    <!--  Visibility of menu items is controlled by RadContextMenu_Opened  -->
                    <telerik:RadMenuItem Header="View/Edit Abstracts" />
                    <telerik:RadMenuSeparatorItem />
                    <telerik:RadMenuItem Header="Set Admitting" />
                    <telerik:RadMenuItem Header="Set Principal" />
                    <telerik:RadMenuSeparatorItem />
                    <telerik:RadMenuItem Header="Move Code">
                        <telerik:RadMenuItem Header="Move Down" />
                        <telerik:RadMenuItem Header="Move Up" />
        <telerik:RadDocking x:Name="DockingControl"
                            telerik:RadContextMenu.ContextMenu="{StaticResource contextMenuCode}">
                    <telerik:RadPaneGroup x:Name="PaneGroup" telerik:RadDocking.SerializationTag="PaneGroup">
                        <telerik:RadPane CanFloat="False"
                                         Header="Document" />
            <telerik:RadSplitContainer InitialPosition="DockedLeft" Orientation="Horizontal" telerik:DockingPanel.InitialSize="200,10">
                <telerik:RadSplitContainer InitialPosition="DockedLeft" Orientation="Vertical" telerik:DockingPanel.InitialSize="200,10">
                        <telerik:RadPane CanDockInDocumentHost="False"
                            <telerik:RadGridView x:Name="Grid">
                                    <telerik:GridViewDataColumn DataMemberBinding="{Binding Path=Temp1}" Header="Temp1" />
                                    <telerik:GridViewDataColumn DataMemberBinding="{Binding Path=Temp2}" Header="Temp2" />
                                    <telerik:GridViewDataColumn DataMemberBinding="{Binding Path=Temp3}" Header="Temp3" />
                                    <telerik:GridViewDataColumn DataMemberBinding="{Binding Path=Temp4}" Header="Temp4" />

    Unfortunately the issue turned to be more complicated than previously expected and is still not resolved.

    The issue is related to some limitations that come from the default WPF Popup control and we are still researching the possible solutions to it. We will do our best to have a fix for this issue as soon as possible. We apologize for any inconvenience that this may be causing.

    Hi Bret,

    Would it be possible to share more information on your exact scenario as the thread is quite an old one and we have worked on fixing the behavior in different scenarios? Please have a look at the following item from our Ideas & Feedback portal - Showing ContextMenu inside of unpinned Pane closes it immediately when the element inside the Pane could not be focused. If your case is similar, you can try the workaround suggested by my colleague in the comments section.
