    Hi,

    I have an application that is full screen (it covers the taskbar) with a RadDocking as main layout. When I maximize a floating pane, it doesn't fill the screen, there is a gap that would have been filled by the taskbar.

    I reproduced it with the demo project :
    - Set WindowStyle="None" in Shell.xaml
    - Go to the RadDocking demo
    - Maximize a floating pane

    Is there a way to prevent that behavior ?

    Thank you!

    Hi Etienne,

    We tried to reproduce this behavior with our QSF demos, but to no avail - the maximized floating panes take all the available space over the taskbar. Can you point us to the RadDocking demo that is mentioned in your post? 

    I am glad to assist you further.

    Hello Etienne,

    We tried several scenarios with the First Look of Docking example in the WPF Demos but the floated windows behaves as expected. Can you send us a video in order to reproduce the behavior.

    Hi Etienne,

    Thank you for sending us the sample video. We took some time and investigate the behavior and we can confirm that this comes from the default WPF Window - the floating panes in RadDocking control are actually Windows. Please refer to the attached sample project which reproduces the same behavior with the default Wpf controls. We are not aware of any workarounds at this moment.

    Hi,

    In your sample project, if I set the WindowStyle of the second window to None, it works. Is it possible to do this to the floating panes of a RadDocking ?

    Hi Etienne,

    The WindowStyle of the windows that host the ToolWindows is actually None - we clear the style and add our logic for dragging, maximazing, etc. However, by design the ToolWindows act like a default WPF Windows and this cannot be changed with the current version of RadDocking.
