In the XML Form document the XML window opens next to the new sidebar.

See attached screen shot.

To reproduce, create new XML Form document, or open existing one.

Activate Form design toolbar in View>Toolbars.
Click on XML (Data navigator) - the navigator window opens next to the sidebar.

Best solution is integrate XML(Data navigator) into sidebar.

If I close the Properties, by clicking on X the XML (data navigator) jump into sidebar frame, and shows up below the other sidebar items. 

See second screenshot.

This looks like a second issue.

A third one: in my build from trunk, the sidebar shows an empty Property panel. As an XML form is a text document, when the cursor is on the document text it should display the text properties panel.
@r4zoli: can you confirm this one in the build from the build bot?

Yes, I can confirm it in nightly build. No property panel.
I tested in today's version. 2013.04.14.

This looks like part of a more generic problem: a database form and an old text report show the same behavior. Didn't try with the ReportBuilder (I guess the sidebar does not work there).
Comment 6 r4zoli 2013-04-14 19:41:13 UTC
I run report builder reports, no problems with sidebar, The property is Ok, in this case.

this might be because the report, once run, generates a usual Writer/Calc document.
But in design mode, is there a sidebar? I would guess the reportdesign module is UNO based, not sfx2, thus the sidebar does not work in the report in design mode (though I might be wrong :D)

I opened bug 122056 for XML/db forms and db reports.

The sidebar not working in reportdesign, design mode.

The sidebar now supports more Writer variants (regular, Web, XML, Forms, Global document).

"af" committed SVN revision 1470918 into trunk:
122051: Sidebar handles more Writer variants.

@Andre: bug 122056 is not duplicate of this one, this one depends on it.

This bug is about adding the "Data Navigator", now a docking window of its own, as part of the sidebar, just like it was done with the Navigator and the Stylist.

revision 1470918 added the sidebar to the Writer-based XML forms documents, as part of fixing bug 122056, but this bug was not handled.

From the user perspective, if the "Data Navigator" is going to be added to the sidebar, it might be useful to allow also the "Data Navigator" as a docking window: a user with a wide screen might want to have both, the "Data Navigator" docked and the sidebar docked with the properties panel.
