Hi folks,

I am using radDocking in our Silverlight2 application. I currently have 2 docked panes of supplementary information.
In the example xaml below these are:  
- radSplitCaseNotes - docked Right; (contains a RadGridView control)
- radSplitCaseDetail - docked Bottom

I also have a floating pane which will act as a context menu.
In the example xaml below:
- radSplitActionMenu - FloatingDockable

The docking panes work fine until I try and dock the ActionMenu floating pane to either the top or bottom of the compass on the docked CaseNotes pane. The pane docks fine but as when I try and undock teh ActionMenu pane again I get a "Layout Cycle Detected" error. It seems to be caused by the RadGridView control. (If I comment the RadGridView control out then it works fine).

I've included a cut-down version of the xaml that reproduces the problem and full details of the error below.
To reproduce the error, dock the Actions floating pane to the top or bottom of the Case Notes pane. Then try to drag it again to undock.

Thanks in advance...
Jonathan

Hi Jonathan,

We were able to reproduce the issue and to find the problem - you shouldn't use the Docking control in a layout panel that measures it with the available size with infinite height or width. It will not always crash, but it is not working correctly and it may cause layout cycle. This is not a bug - it is by design as we decided that it doesn't make sense to let the Docking control resize itself.

To work this around, just change the height of the Row that the Docking is positioned from "Auto" to something else and it will work for you.

What if my application need to use 100% of the browser window?  I tried to set the height of the grid row that contains the RadDocking control, but I'm still getting this error.  Is this something you can fix in the later release or through hotfix?

Hi Patrick,

 Could you please share with us your scenario? If you could share your XAML of the page that contains the Docking control and a detailed explanation of the goal (how the Docking control should be laid out) this would help us better understand the matter and assist you further.

Kind regards,

Hello,
I have the same error with my application:
Line: 56
Error: Unhandled Error in Silverlight Application
Code: 4008   
Category: RuntimeError      
Message: Layout cycle detected.  Layout could not complete.    
MethodName:     

Although I'm using RadTileView control. The error is not thrown every time but from time to time. Can you give me any sugestions for this? Should I place my code here (it's pretty large).

Hello Liliah,

 We are not aware of such problem in general, so need some more information. Could you please share with us some more details about your project and the situations when this problem occurs?
- What contains the page that causes the problems and how are the elements related? The XAML of the page would help a lot.
- When the problem occurs? You mentioned it doesn't happen every time - did you observed specific scenarios that causes the problem?

This information will help us to try to reproduce the problem and better assist you to resolve it. If you could also send us a sample project that reproduces the issue this would be of great help!
