    Please Note: This is a solution rather than a question.

    On the following example:


    The following javascript error throws if you are using master pages:

    Microsoft JScript runtime error: 'null' is null or not an object.

    This is caused by the following line:

    ScriptManager.RegisterStartupScript(dock, Me.[GetType](), "AddDock", String.Format("function _addDock() {{" & Chr(13) & "" & Chr(10) & "" & Chr(9) & "Sys.Application.remove_load(_addDock);" & Chr(13) & "" & Chr(10) & "" & Chr(9) & "$find('{1}').dock($find('{0}'));" & Chr(13) & "" & Chr(10) & "" & Chr(9) & "$find('{0}').doPostBack('DockPositionChanged');" & Chr(13) & "" & Chr(10) & "}};" & Chr(13) & "" & Chr(10) & "Sys.Application.add_load(_addDock);", dock.ClientID, DropDownZone.SelectedValue), True)

    DropDownZone.SelectedValue is referenced which will return RadDockZone1 instead of the required RadDockZone1.ClientID.

    There are a few solutions to this problem but i found the best one was to populate the Rad Dock selector at runtime.

    Simply add the following code to the page load:

    Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As ObjectByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load  
            If Not Page.IsPostBack Then 
                For Each item As ListItem In DropDownZone.Items  
                    Dim obj As Web.UI.Control = RadDockLayout1.FindControl(item.Value)  
                    If obj IsNot Nothing Then 
                        item.Value = obj.clientID  
                    End If 
            End If 
        End Sub 

    If a better solution is avalible please post it here.

    I just added the following in the javascript to grap the client ID:




    var dock = $find('<%= RadDock1.ClientID %>');
