    I am trying to create a pageview / expandable content area with a titlebar and show/hide arrows that is similar to how windows explorer in windows xp does it on the left side navigation of the window. Here is an example image:

    I found a thread here where someone asked the same question, and a solution was provided using PanelBar, which is now obsolete.

    My question is, is there a way i can use PageView to achieve a similar effect?

    Any help / suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Also if anyone knows how to achieve something similar to Infragistics UltraExpandableGroupBox found in this video: i would appreciate any tips you may have...all i need is simpler way to show / hide a set of controls under one main heading, don't necessarily need all the fancy features of the PageView...maybe i'm missing something right in front of me? Thanks.

    Hello Mark,

    The new PageView has similar options to the old control.

    You will probably want Stack, Explorer or Outlook. I'd suggest having a look at the demos on your PC that came with the controls under
    PageView >> View Modes that will allow you to explorer the options.
    Hope that helps, but let me know if you need further help

    Hello Mark,

    Thank you for your post.

    You can use RadPageView in ExplorerBar mode. All you need to do is just set the ViewMode property of your page view in the designer to ExplorerBar. Some help articles about RadPageView in ExplorerBar view can be found here.

    I hope this is helpful. If you need further help, do not hesitate to write back.

    All the best,
