                                    We have a need to perform various customizations to the WPF Report Template Editor.
                                    We need these customizations to be performed before the Report Editor is displayed to the user.
                                    I have been browsing the related documentation and removed a number of ribbon controls and hidden the Group and Sort panel.
                                    These modifications have been accomplished via XAML and grammatically in the C#.

                                    I have not been able to discover how to do the following:

                                    4. This one may be a stretch...  Is it possible to stack the Properties panel on top of the already stacked Report Explorer and Field List?

                                    Thank you,
                                    Jim

                                Hello Jim,

                                You can use the LayoutTreeHelper.GetVisualChildren method to get access to DockLayoutManager in the visual tree of the End-User Report Designer. Then, find the 'PropertyGridPanel' panel and the 'SideTopPanelsGroup' tabbed group and move the 'PropertyGridPanel' to 'SideTopPanelsGroup' using the DockLayoutManager.DockController.Dock method. Here is a corresponding code snippet:

                                [C#]
                                private void designer_Loaded(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e) { DockLayoutManager manager = LayoutTreeHelper.GetVisualChildren(designer).OfType<DockLayoutManager>().First(); LayoutPanel lp = manager.GetItem("PropertyGridPanel") as LayoutPanel; TabbedGroup sideTopPanelsGroup = manager.GetItem("SideTopPanelsGroup") as TabbedGroup; manager.DockController.Dock(lp, sideTopPanelsGroup, DevExpress.Xpf.Layout.Core.DockType.Fill); }

                                Thanks,
                                Elliot
