    I have four ToolWindows added dynmaically to a RadControl.  These always render with equal sizes.  I want to make one of these a smaller fixed size with the others bigger to make up the difference.  I have tried setting the ToolWindow Height, the DockTabStrip Height, I've set the TabStrip.SizeInfo.SizeMode to Absolute, everything I try has no effect on the height.

    I'm new to winforms and am struggling here.  Any help would be most welcome.

    Hi eliraz,

    Thank you for writing.

    As my colleague Georgi said, this issue was addressed in Q2 2010. Here is a small example that demonstrates how you can change the tool windows height:
    ToolWindow window1 = new ToolWindow();
    ToolWindow window2 = new ToolWindow();
    ToolWindow window3 = new ToolWindow();
    ToolWindow window4 = new ToolWindow();
    this.radDock1.DockWindow(window1, DockPosition.Top);
    this.radDock1.DockWindow(window2, DockPosition.Top);
    this.radDock1.DockWindow(window3, DockPosition.Top);
    this.radDock1.DockWindow(window4, DockPosition.Top);
    window1.TabStrip.SizeInfo.AbsoluteSize = new System.Drawing.Size(0, 40);
    window2.TabStrip.SizeInfo.AbsoluteSize = new System.Drawing.Size(0, 60);
    window3.TabStrip.SizeInfo.AbsoluteSize = new System.Drawing.Size(0, 80);
    window4.TabStrip.SizeInfo.AbsoluteSize = new System.Drawing.Size(0, 100);

    I hope this helps.

    Best wishes,
    the Telerik team
