    2008/Q1SP1

    I have set images to my dockable document forms (UserDockForm based, imported as local resources) and they display nicely in the tab, but not in the drop down menu when the tab area is filled - which I think would be expected.

    What am I missing?

    Hello Erwin,

    The current edition of the RadDock component does not support this feature. We have added it to our TODO list for the Q2 release planned for next month.

    Thank you for the feedback. If you have additional questions, please contact us.

    All the best,

    Any news on this subject - if there are no plans to support icons in the menus, is there a way to dynamically change the text displayed so that I can have another text when in the tab strip than when in the menu?

    Background: The app can open a lot of windows for each object type there is in the application. To save space, I just use the Icon to discern the object type and have the name of the object as window caption in the tab. Different Object Types can have the same name. Now when the tab moves to the menu, it's no longer possible to see what type of object is behind the menu item.

    Can the docked window find out whether it's caption is in the tab strip or in the context menu and change the caption accordingly?

    Regards and Happy New Year
    Erwin

    Hi Erwin,

    This feature is currently at design and implementation stage. The new APIs will be available for Q1 2009 release.
    Keep us posted if anything else pops up.
