Hi Folks,

i have a small issue here.

I want to keep a special layout in my dockingmanager, unfortunately the layout trick does not work for me, for my DockPanels do not have public constructors. Therefor i need to arrange 2 tabbed documents in a  vertical position.
Unfortunately the method SetDocument doesn't do the trick for me either, for it tabs them by default.

Any help would be appreciated

regards Alexander

Hello Alexander,

If I have understood you correctly, your goal is to achieve a layout with two tabbed documents in a vertical position. To do so, you should use DockingManager's Advanced Layout Designer. Simply click the Docking Manager's Smart Tag, and choose Show Advanced Layout Designer from the Action Menu. Then, add two documents, and drag one of them to the right dock of the designer. Save and slose the Advanced Layout Designer.

There is an issue with already existing and arranged tabbed documents. If you Save and Close the Advanced Layout Designer with the arranged documents, then open it again and try to rearrange them, and finally Save and Close it again, your changes will be reflected at design time, but they will not be taken into consideration at run-time. This will be addressed for one of our next releases.

If you have additional questions, do not hesitate to contact me.

Hi Ramius,

In order to add tabbed documents into separate containers through code, please refer to the following code below. You will notice that when setting the second DocumentPane, we pass the first DocumentPane as a host:
DocumentPane panel1 = new DocumentPane();  
panel1.Text = "Document1";  
this.dockingManager1.SetDock(panel1, DockPosition.Left);   
 
DocumentPane panel2 = new DocumentPane();  
panel2.Text = "Document2";  
this.dockingManager1.SetDock(panel2, panel1, DockPosition.Right); 

I hope this helps. If you have additional questions, feel free to contact me.

Sincerely yours,
