I cannot figure out how to set the size or position (in pixels, not snapped to the top, left, bottom, or right) of a floating DockPanel which was created at runtime.

Below is how I'm instantiating the DockPanel (the DeckWorkspace is a valid UserControl... part of CAB, "docked" and "auto-hide" are bools). I have tried setting Size, but that only appears to control the private "dockSize" member, and obviously I don't have access to the private "floatSize" member.


DockPanel panel = new DockPanel();

DeckWorkspace workspace = new DeckWorkspace();

workspace.Name = workspaceName;

workspace.Dock = DockStyle.Fill;

panel.Controls.Add(workspace);

dockingManager1.PrimarySite.DockingManager.SetDock(panel, DockPosition.Default);

panel.DockState = (docked) ? DockState.Docked : DockState.Floating;

panel.DockState = (autoHide) ? DockState.Docked & DockState.AutoHide : panel.DockState;

Hi stealthsid,

You can use the Size property of DockPanel or any IDockable window, but when the window is docked and its DockPosition is not Fill.

When an IDockable window is in a floating container, you may get the HostForm from the DockingSite property and change its size:

if(dockPanel1.DockingSite.HostFrom != null)  
{  
    dockPanel1.DockingSite.HostForm.Size = new Size(300,300);  

I hope this helps. If you have additional questions, please contact us.

All the best,
