Hey all -

I've played with a few different bits of code to save the Dock controls, and was wondering if I was missing an easy way to save them in the app?

The code dockingManager1.SaveXML(FileName);  and dockingManager1.loadXML(FileName); only saves the dock structure, but not any of the internal controls.

Thanks in advance,
Jim

Hi Jim,

The docking manager only saves it's docking layout structure. To load and use internal controls you must implement your custom logic. Here is a KB article, which may be used in your scenario:

Hi Tree,

Thank you for writing.

You can find the relevant article regarding how to save the internal controls here.

In order to get your Form from the HostWindow you can use the Content property. More information about HostWindow can be found here.

I hope this information will be helpful.

As i load the form xml.
i use the ((HostWindow)dock).LoadContent(functionForm) to load the content in my DockWindows.
But i MdiChildren cannot be set. ( this.radDock1.MdiChrildren).

As the original form which is created by form.show() and the following setting have be set.
this.radDock1.AutoDetectMdiChildren = true;
this.radDock1.MdiChildrenDockType = DockType.ToolWindow;

After the form have be showed, the ( this.radDock1.MdiChrildren) should content the information.
But how can i work it on LoadFromXml and using the loadContent.

Hello Tree,

Thank you for replying.

When using the MDI detection all MDI forms are added to the MdiChildren collection of RadDock. You can access them and add your controls as you would in a standard form since the children are of type Form‚Äč:
private void Form1_Load1(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
    this.RadDock.MdiChildren[0].Controls.Add(new MyControl());
}

I hope this will help.

George
