Please take a look at the following RadDocking control...  it contains a main document host area and three simple panes, initially docked at the bottom.

1) Run the sample and unpin each of the bottom panes.
2) Hover the tab for the 3rd pane 'CCC' and notice that it opens revealing a RadDropDownButton control...
3) Click the RadDropDownButton to open it's radmenu.  As soon as you hover the popup containing the radmenuitems, the RadDocking panel will start to slide closed...

I've run into this same problem. It appears to be a bug in the docking control that occurs whenever a popup control is used. In the project I'm working on I have a common usercontrol called PaneView that all my views inherit from. The following code in this class seems to have solved the problem for me.
using System;
using System.Linq;
using System.Windows.Controls;
using System.Windows.Input;
using System.Windows.Media;
using Telerik.Windows.Controls;
 
namespace Workaround
{
    public class PaneView : UserControl
    {      
        public PaneView()
        {           
            MouseLeave += OnMouseLeave;
            MouseEnter += OnMouseEnter;
        }
 
        private int _popupCount;
 
        private void OnMouseEnter(object sender, MouseEventArgs e)
        {
            _popupCount = VisualTreeHelper.GetOpenPopups().Count();
        }
 
        private void OnMouseLeave(object sender, MouseEventArgs e)
        {
            var pops = VisualTreeHelper.GetOpenPopups();
            var newPopupCount = pops.Count();
            if (newPopupCount <= _popupCount)
                return;
            _popupCount = newPopupCount;
            ActivatePane();
        }
 
        private void ActivatePane()
        {
            var pane = Parent as RadPane;
            var docking = this.ParentOfType<RadDocking>();
            if (docking != null)
            {
                docking.ActivePane = pane;
            }
        }       
    }
}

Hi,

This issue is now fixed and you can test it with the latest internal build.

As explained into the PITS item, this still happens only with Context Menu because by default the right click doesn't focus any element and that is why the RadPane is hiding. In order to workaround this you have to select the element you clicked by some custom code.

We are sorry for the inconvenience caused.
