    I am attempting to implement multi-level row layouts, where the second-level layouts reside in the ContentTemplate of the first level docks. This configurations would allow me to move the first level items around within a main zone, carrying with them the contained second-level docks. I then also need to be able to move second-level docks between the sub-layouts. My initial attempt doesn't appear to work correctly and I am now attempting to distill the code into an example to post to show how it doesn't work (I'll post it when finished). I am able to move the rows around in the Main zone and dynamically create row sub-docks, but the movement of rocks to other row zones doesn't save. I was wondering if anyone has implemented this type of configuration before and would be able to provide a suggested solution.
    Thanks, Nate

    Here's the hierarchy or controls, where the rows and rowdocks are dynamically created.
    <mainlayout - RadDockLayout>
       <mainzone - RadDockZone>
           <row - RadDock>
                   <rowlayout - RadDockLayout>
                       <rowzone - RadDockZone>
                           <rowdock - RadDock />
                            ... other dynamically created docks that also need to move between rowlayout/rowzones...
                       </rowzone - RadDockZone>
                   </rowlayout - RadDockLayout>
           </row - RadDock>

           ... other dynamically created row - RadDocks...
       </mainzone - RadDockZone>
    <mainlayout - RadDockLayout>

    Hi Nate,

    Most probably the inner RadDockLayout controls are causing the difficulties you are having. The dock layout is designed to handle the state and location of all docks on the page, so it is recommended to have only one on the page and to wrap all docks in it. Please try the following sample:
    <telerik:RadDockLayout runat="server" ID="RadDockLayout1">
        <telerik:RadDockZone runat="server" ID="RadDockZone1">
            <telerik:RadDock runat="server" ID="RadDock1">
                    <telerik:RadDockZone runat="server" ID="RadDockZoneInner1">
                        <telerik:RadDock runat="server" ID="RadDockInner1">
                                <telerik:RadDockZone runat="server" ID="RadDockZoneInner2">
                                    <telerik:RadDock runat="server" ID="RadDockInner2">
    <asp:Button Text="text" runat="server" />

    If you are still having difficulties, I would suggest opening a support ticket and sending a fully runnable sample that isolates the problem so that I can examine it locally and help you accordingly.
