Hi,

I am developing a WPF application in my company.
The main window contains a Docking control.
UserControls are displayed in floating Panes at run time.
A floating Pane in the application is the only Pane in its PaneGroup and the PaneGroup is the only PaneGroup in its SplitContainer.
I use the RadPane.MakeFloatingDockable method to make a Pane floating but the Pane is initially displayed in the top left corner of the main window.
What do I need to do to initially display a floating Pane in the center of the main window ?

Thank you in advance for your help

Hi Pascal,

In order to change the position of the Floating Pane you will need to get its parent of type ToolWindow and change its Top and Left properties as required. Please check the following code snippet:

...
this.Pane.MakeFloatingDockable();
var toolWindow = this.Pane.ParentOfType<ToolWindow>();
if (toolWindow != null)
{
    toolWindow.Top = 500;
    toolWindow.Left = 400;
}
...

Hope this works for you.

Regards,
