I am trying RadDocking Control for my project, and I encounter several problems and hope you give me some suggestion.

Now I can add new panes in docking area dynamically

1. If I add to many panes and these panes outside of main window, how can I
let the added new panes just fit in the main window and adjust their size

2. How can I change the layout of panes dynamically, for example: let
current panes layout vertically or horizontally?

3. Is the compass size  in RadDocking can be changed? Cause the compass is
a little small to place the floating pane.

4. If I drag the folating window to center of compass, it will become a tab
of target pane, can the behavior be change to switch the place of these two

5. May the property CanFloat=False, and I still can dock panes, cause I
dont want floating panes.

So many questions, I'll be very appriciate for your advices. Thanks!

Hi kj,

 I will answer your questions in the same order:

1. I cannot understand what you need to do. Could you please give us some more information about this scenario?

2. There is a property of the RadSplitContainer class called Orientation that switches between Vertical and Horizontal orientation of the current split container.

3. You could use the CompassStyle and RootCompassStyle properties of the Docking control for customizing the compasses. You could refer to the following example:

4. This behavior cannot be changed

5. This feature is in our TODO list, but it is not scheduled so I cannot give you a time-frame when it will be ready.

All the best,
