    Hi,

    Does RadDock Prometheus support nested dock controls?  I'm trying to build a form creator out of nested RadDock controls, but when I try to move one of the nested controls, an empty zone appears below it and I can't dock it back into its nested position.  I am able to get nested controls with the current RadDock.  This is my current setup:

    RadZone
      RadDock
        RadZone
          RadDock
          RadDock
          ...

    Also, are you able to announce a tentative release date for RadDock Prometheus resize functionality?

    Thanks!

    Hi Burt Bielicki,

    Thank you for bringing the issue with the nested docks to out attention. Unfortunately, RadDock Prometheus does not provide such functionality as of now. Please, find 1000 Telerik points added to your account as a way to express our positive attitude towards clients' active feedback. As far as your second question is concerned - we will try to provide the resize functionality for the next official release scheduled for the beginning of September.

    Kind regards,

    Hello,

    I am also very interested in the resize functionality of the Prometheus RadDock. I can’t wait for the new release. I was wondering also if the RadZone will have the resize functionality. Some other features I would like to see in the new release are a color picker in the RadDock that would change the colors of the background, text, title etc., support for menus, icons as well. I would also find useful on the fly drag and drop re-arrange-able and rename-able tabs.

    Are any of these features going to be supported in the next release?

    Thanks,
    v.

    Hello,

    As for now we have prioritized our work for this release cycle so that RadDock resizing will be available for the official release and there will be no resizing for RadDockZone. As far as your other requests are concerned - they will be considered but it less likely to be implemented having in mind the scheduled load of work on the control.

    Best wishes,

    While playing around with docking I realize that I, as Burt, would like the ability to nest zones. In my case only in one layer. Movable containers that contain movable items.

    Hello ,

    You can achieve this behavior. All you need to do is set RadDock.ForbiddenZones to its inner RadDockZone.
    Please take a look at the following code:

    <div style="background-color:Green;width:800px;height:800px">  
                <rad:RadDockLayout ID="RadDockLayout1" runat="server">  
             
                    <rad:RadDock ID="RadDock1" runat="server" ForbiddenZones="RadDockZone3">  
                        <ContentTemplate> 
                            <rad:RadDockZone ID="RadDockZone3" runat="server">              
                            </rad:RadDockZone>        
                        </ContentTemplate> 
                    </rad:RadDock> 
                 
                    <rad:RadDock ID="RadDock2" runat="server" ForbiddenZones="RadDockZone4">  
                        <ContentTemplate> 
                            <rad:RadDockZone ID="RadDockZone4" runat="server">              
                            </rad:RadDockZone>        
                        </ContentTemplate> 
                    </rad:RadDock> 
             
                </rad:RadDockLayout>                     
         
        </div> 

    I hope that this will help you to achieve your goals. If you have any other questions please let us know.

    I am having an issue with nested Docks. When I create a DockZone and a Dock inside of a ContentTemplate of another Dock, it does not allocate enough height for the inner Dock and has scroll bars that make it impossible to use. Any thoughts?

    You should set RadDockZone.Width and RadDockZone.FitDocks=true.

     <rad:RadDock ID="RadDock2" runat="server" ForbiddenZones="RadDockZone4">     
                        <ContentTemplate>    
                            <rad:RadDockZone ID="RadDockZone4" runat="server" Width="200px" FitDocks="true">                 
                            </rad:RadDockZone>           
                        </ContentTemplate>    
                    </rad:RadDock>

    Thank you Obi-Wan Kenobi, you were my only hope!

    Sorry... I know... lame, but I had to do it.

    Your advice did indeed work. Thank you very much!
