i;m trying to open a control that it will fill the dockinmanager in  the center
i have the following code:

            RadSplitContainer container = new RadSplitContainer();
            container.InitialPosition = DockState.DockedRight;
            RadDocking.SetDockState(container, DockState.DockedRight);
            m_dockingManager.Items.Add(container);
            RadPaneGroup group = new RadPaneGroup();
            container.Items.Add(group);
            RadPane newPane = new RadPane();
            group.AddItem(newPane, global::Telerik.Windows.Controls.Docking.DockPosition.Center);
            RadDocking.SetSerializationTag(newPane, control.Name);
            newPane.Title = ps.Caption;
            newPane.Content = control;
            newPane.Measure(new Size(double.PositiveInfinity, double.PositiveInfinity));
            newPane.Arrange(new Rect(control.DesiredSize));
            newPane.ClipToBounds = true;
            newPane.CanUserClose = ps.CloseButtonVisability;
            newPane.CanUserPin = ps.AutoHideVisability;
            newPane.CanDockInDocumentHost = (ps.FloatOnly == false);
            if (ps.FloatOnly == true)
                newPane.MakeFloatingOnly();
            else
            {
                if (ps.Floating == true)
                    newPane.MakeFloatingDockable();
                else
                    newPane.MakeDockable();
            }
            ResourceDictionary dic = GetTelerikResourceStyle();
            newPane.Style =(Style)dic[DEFAULTRADPANESTYLE];
but this doesnt work- it always open the control in 24 width and heigth in the top left corner of the screen.
why?????

Hello,

We are not sure what the issue exactly is.

Could you describe to us in more details the expected behavior when adding a Pane via the code behind.

Does the Pane itself needs to be centered and if yes should it be in the DocumentHost or simply docked in the control, or does its content needs to be positioned?

Hi,
The pane itself needs to be centered and filled in the docking pane, it doesnt need to be documenthost only docked.
the best way to explain is that it should appear is if i'm dragging a window toward the middle tab  of the rad docking IDE, causing the window to be centered and filling entire pane.
thats how i want my window to be initillized.

but what ever i do the window is opend in the lefst corener with width and heigth dimention of 24.

Hi,

Achieving the desired behavior depends if or not there is an DocumentHost in the RadDocking control. If there is no DocumentHost in the control and the HasDocumentHost property is set to False, simply adding the SplitContainer to the Items of the control will make that Pane centered and stretched. If the HasDocumentHost i set to True (its default value) you will need to add the newly created Pane to the SplitContainer that is placed inside the DocumentHost.

I recorded a short video showing how to achieve both described scenarios, hope this is helpful. You can also find the sample project attached to my response.
