    I have a two docks in a horizontal zone.

    When Dock_1 undocks I force Dock_0 to resize to 100% of the width of the zone.  
    This restricts the floating dock from resizing larger.  Is this by design? 

    One workaround is to size Dock_0 narrower and than the floating Dock_1 can be resized larger. 

    Is there a proper technique to allow my floating dock to resize at will while Dock_0 occupies 100% of the zone?

    Hi Joel,

    Yes indeed there seems to be a problem with the RadDock control. We will do our best to fix it for the next release. For the time being my suggestion is to handle the DragEnd client-side event and set the RadDock's dockZone to null when the dock becomes floating. Here is a sample:
    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "">
    <head runat="server">
        <form id="form1" runat="server">
        <asp:ScriptManager ID="RadScriptManager1" runat="server">
        <script type="text/javascript">
            function OnClientDragEnd(dock, args)
                if (dock.get_dockZoneID() == "")
            <telerik:RadDockLayout ID="RadDockLayout1" runat="server">
                <telerik:RadDockZone ID="RadDockZone1" runat="server" MinHeight="300px" Width="700px"
                    FitDocks="false" Orientation="Horizontal">
                    <telerik:RadDock ID="RadDock1" runat="server" Title="RadDock-Title" Width="300px"
                            Dock's Content
                    <telerik:RadDock ID="RadDock2" runat="server" Title="RadDock-Title" Width="300px"
                        Height="300px" Resizable="true" OnClientDragEnd="OnClientDragEnd">
                            Dock's Content
