    Masters and Experts,
    I would like to implement a workflow form using the PanelBar control. I wanted to check here and see if it's possible before I put the development effort into it. What I would like to accomplish is creating a user control that would display in a RadWindow that will function as follows;
      User Selected Search Criteria
      Search / Move Next button (if results were found, If not message user)
      RadGrid containing the results from the Search from Panel1. User would select the record they need for primer data for their new entry on Panel3
      Move Next Button
      ReadOnly data items from Panel2s selection and editable user entry data fields
      Save Button

    If it's possible for the control to handle that type of data manipulation would you know of any samples I could review as reference.

    Hello Tim,

    I think this should be possible using Templates. Please, review the demo and let me know if you can use this appraoch. Here is also a help topic for reference -

    Thanks Peter. I am working through a proof of concept now. I have run into a snag though

    I have the RadPanelBar on a aspx page and I am loading the ascx controls into the RadPanelItem on the aspx page. I am trying to wire up the "next" buttons but when I try to get the reference to the RadPanelBar control on the aspx page using this.Parent.FindControl("RadPanelBar1")  it returns null. Using QuickWatch into this.Parent reveals that the Parent Item for the ascx is the RadPanelItem that the control is embedded in. How do I get the RadPanelBar1 item from the host aspx page?

    Nevermind This.Parent.Page.FindControls("RadPanelBar1") worked just like it was supposed to.
