    Hi,

    I am trying to allow the ability from a FloatingWindow to open a DocumentWindow in the parent form RadDock object but its null.

    Here is how I am doing it as a Docked ToolWindow, but it changes to FloatingWindow when I undock it and the parentform of that is now null.

    string itemName = rows[0].GetProperty("Name").ToString();
                   
    DocumentWindow documentTop = new DocumentWindow();
    documentTop.Text = itemName;
    documentTop.DocumentButtons = DocumentStripButtons.All;

    //dosnt want to add a document because I cannot find the Form that opened this.

    if (this.ParentForm is FloatingWindow)
    {
        //todo: find a way to call the DockManager and add a new document.
    }

    //this works only when the ToolWindow object is Docked.
    if (this.ParentForm is RadRibbonForm1)
    {
         ((RadRibbonForm1)this.ParentForm).radDock1.AddDocument(documentTop);
    }



    Any Assistance would be helpful.
    Thanks,
    RK.

    Hello Robert,

    Thank you for writing.

    I am afraid that the design of your application is not clear to me. For this reason I kindly ask you to send me your project, so that I can investigate your case and provide you with adequate support.

    The straight-forward way to achieve this can be observed in the attached project. 

    I am looking forward to your reply and sample application.
     
    Kind regards,
