Hi,

WPF Q1 2010 - Win XP SP3

When I 
1. Dynamically create a pane containing a grid and move it to document host (NO other panes open).
2. Drag it so it is floating.
3. Dock it.
4. Unpin so auto hide kicks in.
5. Mouse over so the window slides out.

- Problem - when mouse leaves the area of the slided-out pane, it does not hide again.  

6. If I open another pane and move it to the document host, now the original page behaves correctly (hiding and so on).
7. Close the second pane (the one docked in the document host) and the original pane contiues to behave correctly now (hiding nd so on).

Also, are the docking controls getting slow and clunky now or is it me ?

Any Ideas,

Thanks
Rob

Hello Robin,

 The problem you are observing is caused, because the AutoHideArea doesn't close until it lost the focus. As you don't have any other elements that can receive the focus, the Pane does and the AutoHideArea doesn't collapse.

About the slowness of the Docking control - we added 2 features to the Docking control - the ToolWindows are now able to float out of the Window of the application and there are animations. Both features appear to make the Docking control be slow on windows XP. We will target this problem in one of the upcoming releases but I cannot give a time frame for now.

To be fair, it is not only your control that does this.  Other companies docking controls behave in the same manner.  However, saying that it is to do with ,no 'other elements that can receive the focus' doesent ring true.  As you will see from my description

7. Close the second pane (the one docked in the document host) and the original pane contiues to behave correctly now (hiding nd so on).

I challenge you to get this problem occuring in Visua Studio IDE.

Hello Robin,

 The only way to reproduce this in visual studio is to remove all document host panes and unpin all other panes. After that any pane you focus stays open and behaves the same way as the RadDocking control. There are some ways to fix this, but as they might cause unwanted side effects we decided to not apply them.

This may be true for VS 2010 but it certainly is not true for VS 2008 or winforms for that matter, to which I have now switched and the docking control I am using (SandDock) does not behave incorrectly in this manner.  It is probably a WPF thing, who knows.
