    i am dynamically creating RadDocks from an Array for the 1st time and then using the loaded docks i want to save them in the database for per user basis.

    i also have a update panel for the "DockPositionChanged" event, however this is giving the following error.

    A control with ID 'RadDockf49937fe-b13d-4730-b098-d252bb02fc45' could not be found for the trigger in UpdatePanel 'UpdatePanel1'.

    please advise..

    here is the source code

    also, do you have any example that shows how to

    (1) dynamically create docks for a user for the very first time (no database entry exist yet)

    (2) add custom titles and custom ID instead of Unique ID

    Hi Tanuj,

    Thank you for the provided code.

    I was able to reproduce the problem you experience with the code you have sent us. After reviewing it I noticed that you use the Docks collection of the RadDockZone to add docks in it. Adding the docks in the Docks collection does not add the docks inside the Controls collection of the zone which leads to the error you observe. The Docks collection represents the docks added in the zone but it cannot be used for adding the docks in the zone. What is more, if you add a dock to the Controls collection of a zone it will automatically be added to its Docks collection. That is why, to solve the problem you experience you should simply replace the line 
        zoneControl.Docks.Add(dock);

    with the following one 
        zoneControl.Controls.Add(dock);

    in the CreateRadDock method.


    I was not able to understand completely the questions you are asking in the second post. Please, explain in more details what you mean under "dynamically create docks for a user for the very first time". Doesn't the CreateRadDock method from the Dynamically Created Docks online example answer your requirements? What is different in your case? What do you have in mind under custom titles and Custom ID? You can set the dock's title using the Title property of the control. The id of the dock can also be set using its ID property. The id can be set to any value which is unique on the page (no other control has the same id).

    All the best,

    sophy,

    thanks for the reply,

    the online example assumes that there is an entry in the database for the user, let say the the user is a new registrant, then the example will not work as there is no dock state for this user.

    hope this clarifies.

    thanks in advance

    Hello Tanuj,

    It depends on the requirements of your exact scenario what will be the behavior of the example when the user is newly registered and there is no dock state for him. You could create a new database entry and create docks for the new user or simply do not create any docks if there is still no dock state for this user. It's up to you what approach you will choose. In case you experience difficulties with the implementation of your scenario, please, explain in details what is the exact scenario you want to achieve and what is the behavior you expect so that we can give you most accurate suggestion to the requirements you have. 

    Best wishes,
