RadPanelBar Overview

Key Features

  • Hierarchical Data Binding: You can bind RadPanelBar to various hierarchical structures specific to your application. The control can be bound to a collection of Objects, XML, or you can use a WCF service to populate it.

  • Keyboard Support: Use your keyboard to navigate, expand, collapse or select items in RadPanelBar. Additionally, all corresponding events will be fired when using the keys to manage the panelbar items.

  • Different Expand Modes: The expand mode can be either single or multiple, reflecting the allowed number of expanded items. When in single mode, all the panel items will collapse except the item that has just been expanded. Alternatively, the multiple mode allows more than one items to be expanded simultaneously.

  • Styling and Appearance: RadPanelBar can be fully customized using Microsoft Expression Blend. There are also several pre-defined themes that can be used to stylize the RadPanelBar control. Read more about this in the Styling and Appearance section.
