I am trying to have a tab control that fills the entire width of the browser and an expander on teh right hand side. When expanded it would push the tab control over so it does not just go on top of the tab control.  I have reviewed many samples but cant see what I am missing.

Hi,  you just need to set for DataGridArea_   HorizontalAlignment="Stretch", working sample:
<UserControl xmlns:sdk="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation/sdk"  x:Class="SilverlightApplication1.MainPage"
    xmlns:toolkit="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation/toolkit"  
    xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation"
    xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml"
    xmlns:d="http://schemas.microsoft.com/expression/blend/2008"
    xmlns:mc="http://schemas.openxmlformats.org/markup-compatibility/2006" 
    xmlns:data="clr-namespace:System.Windows.Controls;assembly=System.Windows.Controls.Data" 
    >
    <Grid >
        <Grid.ColumnDefinitions >
            <ColumnDefinition Width="*"></ColumnDefinition>
            <ColumnDefinition Width="Auto"></ColumnDefinition>
        </Grid.ColumnDefinitions>
    
        <Grid toolkit:DockPanel.Dock="Left"  HorizontalAlignment="Stretch" Grid.Column="0"  Background="Green">
            <sdk:TabControl >
                <sdk:TabItem Header="111"></sdk:TabItem>
                <sdk:TabItem Header="222"></sdk:TabItem>
                <sdk:TabItem Header="333"></sdk:TabItem>
                <sdk:TabItem Header="444"></sdk:TabItem>
                <sdk:TabItem Header="555"></sdk:TabItem>
            </sdk:TabControl>
        </Grid>


        <toolkit:Expander toolkit:DockPanel.Dock="Right" Grid.Column="1"  ExpandDirection="Left" >
            <toolkit:Expander.Header>
                <TextBlock>Header</TextBlock>
            </toolkit:Expander.Header>
            <toolkit:Expander.Content>
                <data:DataGrid Width="250" Background="Red"></data:DataGrid>
            </toolkit:Expander.Content>
