RadPane

The RadPane is the main content unit of the RadDocking control. Its main purpose is to act as a host for your content. That's why in order to have a functional RadDocking control, you need to have at least one RadPane placed inside it.

RadPanes cannot exist separately and should always be placed inside of a RadPaneGroup.

Define RadPanes

Example 1 demonstrates how to add two RadPane instances to a RadDocking control.

Example 1: Add RadPanes to RadDocking

<telerik:RadDocking x:Name="radDocking">
    <telerik:RadSplitContainer x:Name="radSplitContainer">
        <telerik:RadPaneGroup x:Name="radPaneGroup">
            <telerik:RadPane x:Name="radPane1" Header="Document 1">
                <TextBlock Text="Some simple text here"></TextBlock>
            </telerik:RadPane>
            <telerik:RadPane x:Name="radPane2" Header="Document 2">
                <TextBlock Text="Some simple text here"></TextBlock>
            </telerik:RadPane>
        </telerik:RadPaneGroup>
    </telerik:RadSplitContainer>
</telerik:RadDocking>

Example 1: Add RadPanes to RadDocking

RadPane radPane1 = new RadPane();
radPane1.Header = "Document 1";
radPane1.Content = new TextBlock() { Text = "Some simple text here" };

RadPane radPane2 = new RadPane();
radPane2.Header = "Document 2";
radPane2.Content = new TextBlock() { Text = "Some simple text here" };

var radPaneGroup = new RadPaneGroup();
radPaneGroup.Items.Add(radPane1);
radPaneGroup.Items.Add(radPane2);
var radSplitContainer = new RadSplitContainer();
radSplitContainer.Items.Add(radPaneGroup);
radDocking.Items.Add(radSplitContainer);
Dim radPane1 As New RadPane()
radPane1.Header = "Document 1"
radPane1.Content = New TextBlock() With {.Text = "Some simple text here"}

Dim radPane2 As New RadPane()
radPane2.Header = "Document 2"
radPane2.Content = New TextBlock() With {.Text = "Some simple text here"}

Dim radPaneGroup = New RadPaneGroup()
radPaneGroup.Items.Add(radPane1)
radPaneGroup.Items.Add(radPane2)
Dim radSplitContainer = New RadSplitContainer()
radSplitContainer.Items.Add(radPaneGroup)
radDocking.Items.Add(radSplitContainer)

Figure 1 displays the resulting RadDocking control.

The control structure defined in the above example is (from the root container to the top one):

RadDocking -> RadSplitContainer -> RadPaneGroup -> RadPane

In order to have a functional control you should stick to this structure without skipping any of its elements.
