Pane's Menu

Each RadPane has a menu, which allow you to perform certain actions against the RadPane. By default the RadMenu has the following items:

  • Floating - makes the RadPane floating.

  • Dockable - docks the RadPane.

  • Tabbed Document- places the RadPane in the DocumentHost.

  • Auto Hide- pins/unpins the RadPane, when it is docked.

  • Hide - hides the RadPane.

You can modify the menu by using the ContextMenuTemplate property of the RadPane. It is of type DataTemplate and is expected to contain a RadContextMenu. Here is an example:

<telerik:RadPane x:Name="radPane" 
             Header="Pane 1"> 
    <telerik:RadPane.ContextMenuTemplate> 
        <DataTemplate> 
            <telerik:RadContextMenu> 
                <telerik:RadMenuItem Header="Floating" /> 
                <telerik:RadMenuItem Header="Dockable" /> 
            </telerik:RadContextMenu> 
        </DataTemplate> 
    </telerik:RadPane.ContextMenuTemplate> 
</telerik:RadPane> 
To make the menu items functional you can use the predefined RadDocking commands, which are located in the RadDockingCommands class:
  • Close

  • ContextMenuOpen

  • Dockable

  • Floating

  • PaneHeaderMenuOpen

  • Pin

  • TabbedDocument

You can also create your own custom commands and use them with the RadPane's menu. To learn how read this topic.

Here is the final code:

The RadDockingCommands class is located in the Telerik.Windows.Controls namepsace of the Telerik.Windows.Controls assembly. To use it in XAML you have to declare the following namespace:

<telerik:RadPane x:Name="radPane1" 
             Header="Pane 1"> 
    <telerik:RadPane.ContextMenuTemplate> 
        <DataTemplate> 
            <telerik:RadContextMenu> 
                <telerik:RadMenuItem Header="Floating" 
                                       Command="telerik:RadDockingCommands.Floating" /> 
                <telerik:RadMenuItem Header="Dockable" 
                                       Command="telerik:RadDockingCommands.Dockable" /> 
            </telerik:RadContextMenu> 
        </DataTemplate> 
    </telerik:RadPane.ContextMenuTemplate> 
    <TextBlock Text="Some simple text here" /> 
</telerik:RadPane>
