    I have a set of tabbed ToolWindows that are initially hidden when my application starts.  When I hover over one of them, and then select to pin the windows, is there a way to specify the width, and/or height, that I want them to be when pinned?

    Hello Kenneth,

    Thank you for writing.

    It depends on how the windows are docked. If the windows are docked to top or bottom you can adjust their height, if they are docked to left or right you can adjust their width. For example you can initialize and then set the height of a tool window like this:
    void Form1_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        ToolWindow windowTop = new ToolWindow();
        windowTop.Text = "Window 1";
        this.radDock1.DockWindow(windowTop, DockPosition.Top);
        radDock1.DockStateChanged += radDock1_DockStateChanged;
    void radDock1_DockStateChanged(object sender, DockWindowEventArgs e)
        ToolWindow wnd = e.DockWindow as ToolWindow;
        wnd.TabStrip.SizeInfo.SizeMode = SplitPanelSizeMode.Absolute;
        wnd.TabStrip.SizeInfo.AbsoluteSize = new Size(0, 500);

    Additional information is available here: Example: Building an advanced layout at runtime.
