Lightswitch Telerik DockShell Shell Extension

DockShell wraps 3rd party controls through a provider model and as such DockShell is not restricted to any specific 3rd party Ribbon Docking controls. 

We are creating additional providers for other popular ribbon/docking 3rd party control vendors however it is also possible for you to build your own provider and we will gladly provide you assistance to ensure your success!

Please let us know if you have a specific 3rd party set of controls you would like us to support. We welcome your feedback regarding your LightSwitch navigation and docking control requirements.

DockShell provides you a clear separation between UI from core Navigation concerns and offers full extensibility on both look as well as functionality for your LightSwitch application which will greatly enhance the user experience.

To learn more about DockShell and its features please refer to the DockShell documention found here.
