    I've a problem with RadDock persistance
    First i create form and attach raddock and RadMenu with 1 item to it

    public partial class Form1 : Form 
            string file = "a.xml"
            HostWindow hw = null
            public Form1() 
                this.FormClosing += new FormClosingEventHandler(Form1_FormClosing); 
                hw = radDock1.DockControl(new TextBox(), DockPosition.Left); 
                if (System.IO.File.Exists(file)) 
            void Form1_FormClosing(object sender, FormClosingEventArgs e) 
            private void radMenuItem1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e) 

    Now I run such app and:
    1. Change TextBox to floating window
    2. Hide it by closing
    3. Show it by radMenuItem1 click
    It works as expected, but when  I:
    1. Change TextBox to floating window
    2. Hide it by closing
    3. Restart application
    4. Show control by radMenuItem1 click
    Control appears as toolbox at dock container
    When i closed application without hiding settings are persisted beetwen runs
    How can i make it work?

    Hello Dawid,

    Thank you for your question.

    Actually this is a not yet implemented functionality. When a floating window is hidden and then persisted, it is moved to its the ToolTabStrip that holds its Docked state. We are aware of this missing feature and we will do our best to implement it in some of our next releases.

    I have logged this as a feature request in our Public Tracking System (PITS) where you can track its progress.

    Your Telerik points are updated as a token of our gratitude for your feedback.

    All the best,
    the Telerik team
