I have a form with a Ribbon at the top with dock top to fill the top, a new StatusBar at the bottom with dock bottom to fill the bottom, and in the middle I have a DockManger with dock fill to fill the remaining space.
When I run the form, the Ribbon is at the top like it should be, the StatusBar is at the bottom like it should be. The DockManager is in the middle below the Ribbon, but it appears to extend fully to the bottom of the form with the lower area "hiding" behind the StatusBar.

Hi Alex Peachey,

Please use the Bring to Front command in the Visual Studio designer for the DockingManager component - this should fix the problem.

I had the same problem and I solved it finally with Bring To Front. If you don't fix that behavior, then maybe you should document it better, I think this scenario with Ribbonbar and Docking Manager is very valuable and should have it's own example.

Hello Dragoljub,

Thank you for reporting these issues.

We will address this behavior for RadDock and RadRibbonBar, when they are hosted in same Form. However, I cannot give you any timeframe when this will happen.

Your Telerik points have been updated.

Hi Dragoljub,

This is a quick follow-up.

After some research, we found that the described behavior is not a bug. Actually, this is how the Dock property works in the Microsoft Form layout.

The order of adding the controls on the form affects the way controls are positioned and sized while Dock is used. The details are described in this article:

Contact us again if you have any further questions.
