Flickering of RadPane
I have a scenario where I only want to unhide the pane when certain property of the document is true.

For example: I have 3 panes A,B and C

Panes A and C are visible.

Active Pane should always be Pane A.

By default pane (B) is hidden.

Now when I set the IsHidden Property of the pane B to FALSE. Pane B now becomes the active pane.

I still want Pane A to be the Active Pane, but show the Pane B in background.

If I try setting the Pane A to be the active pane after Pane B is shown. It flickers which you can see here

Is there any way i can unhide the pane in background while the active pane remains the same without having this flickering scenario.

With its current implementation, the Docking control uses ActivationManager which keeps track of the active Panes. Once a Pane is hidden or removed from the collection, the ActivationManager activates the next one in the heap. However by design when a Pane is shown it is automatically activated in order for the described ActivationManager built-in feature to be applied correctly. Customizing this behavior is not possible in the current version of RadDocking.
