Hi -- I've been working with the RadDocking framework and Prism, and am very happy with the way things are coming.
However, I've run into a snag with the Visual Studio designer for XAML on RadDocumentPane views.

My app is using a custom region adapter from these forums for the RadPaneGroup, which is working great.  The views that I create in my other projects are where the issue comes in.  The XAML for those views looks something like this (obviously more interesting than just a single hello world button).  Note that this is the whole file -- there is no encapsulating user control or anything. 
<telerikDocking:RadDocumentPane x:Class="Nwp.BackOffice.Settings.MatchingCriteria.RadDocumentPaneTest"
             d:DesignHeight="300" d:DesignWidth="300">
        <Button>Hello World</Button>

In the designer view, all I can see is a 300x300 grey box -- none of the inside contents.  I *can* change it from a RadDocumentPane to a UserControl (top, bottom tags, then any Resources tags, etc.  This lets me see the contents properly, but then I have to go back and change it back before compile and run time.

Any insight as to how I might better play with the designer (have tried in VS 2010 Utilimate and VS 2012 Ultimate with same results).

Thanks in advance -
