    My requirements are to have a dashboard like experience utilizing windows so that users can move these windows around the screen as they see fit.

    The setup is very MVVM... instead of adding windows through code I have been trying to utilize an items control bound to my list of "windows". This items controls' generated item template is a RadWindow.

    1. The windows never appear.
    2. If I call 'Show' in the windows loaded event I get an exception stating that the window can have only one parent.
    3. I know the test case is sound as when I utilize a simple stack panel in the item template all is well.

    question... is Window + DataBinding + ItemsControl possible?

    Hello Mark,

    Could you please share some code with us so that we can try to reproduce the problem and resolve it? I tried the code snippet bellow and it seemed to be working fine.

     <ItemsControl x:Name="itemsControl"
                            <telerikNavigation:RadWindow Loaded="RadWindow_Loaded"
                                <Button Content="some content" Width="100" Height="25" /> 
    private void RadWindow_Loaded(object sender, System.Windows.RoutedEventArgs e) 
                var window = sender as RadWindow; 

    What am I missing?

    Kind regards,

    Interesting... not sure if it was the solution but having wrapped the window in a stackpanel is what fixes the issue. (a hint from you example).

    works now!
