    Is it possible to add a floating window to RadDock without docking the form as first step. I am using the following code:

          Dim h As HostWindow = RadDock.DockControl(New MyForm(), DockPosition.Fill, DockType.Document)

          h.DefaultFloatingSize = New Size(800, 600)
          h.DockState = DockState.Floating


    The problem is, that this causes a lot of flickering and rearranging of the existing docked windows.

    When added with Dockposition.Fill the new window will get focus. When floated the window in focus when the operation started may be hidden behind another window. Selecting the original window causes flickering between windows.

    Hello Brian,

    Thank you for writing.

    Please have a look at the following code snippet demonstrating how to float directly a HostWindow:
    Private Sub RadButton1_Click(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles RadButton1.Click
        Dim f As New Form()
        Dim h As HostWindow = New HostWindow(f)
        h.DefaultFloatingSize = New Size(800, 600)
        f.Visible = False
    End Sub

    I hope this information helps. Should you have further questions I would be glad to help.
