Hi

I've been having performance issues with the RadDocking system (VERYslow drawing on my work desktop, but good performance on my 5 year old cheap XP Laptop - odd). I bought a new graphics card to see what difference that makes. So I'm now running Windows7 with a GeForce 450. Performance is improved, but it's still not as good performance as my very old/slow laptop! (very puzzling).

However, a bigger problem has arisen - floating panes are now no longer visible on my second monitor (I'm using a dual screen set up). I used to be able to undock panes and drag them onto the second screen - now they are no longer rendered there. The main window renders fine.

From reading the forum it seems that the docking implementation needs to change urgently, so that it is not using this large transparent window. It seems this is causing all kinds of problems, and at the moment the RadDocking system for us is not usable.

A related issue is that when I am running a LogMeIn session on my machine, floating windows do not render. Also, the WPF Frame control does not render inside a floating pane. 

Thanks

Hi Tom,

Thank you for contacting us.

We are aware of all these problems with RadDocking control. We are planning to target them, but their cause is deep in the architecture of the Docking control (it was initially developed for Silverlight where there are no windows floating out of the application area) and this makes the problem hard to fix. We schedule some major changes of the RadDocking control, but they won't be done until Q1 2011.
 

Kind regards,
