Hi there,

I have got problems regarding serialization/deserialization of docking layouts.

1.) When I adjust the width or height of an auto hidden window, this size won't be stored anyhow. If I reload the layout the size is alwas set to a default size. So the user have no chance to adjust the width or height of auto hidden windows permanently. I can reproduce this behaviour with the RadControls for WinForms example application under "RadDock-->Serialization". For me it seems that the size of an autohidden window isn't stored in the xml file at all. Am correct there? What can I do?

2.) When having a floating window the size of this window will not be restored correctly. Its size decreases everytime saving and loading the layout to xml. This behaviour can be reproduced in the sample application, too!

Please help ...


Best regards,
Oliver Bollmann

Hi Oliver,

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Currently, we cannot provide you with a reliable solution for this behavior. We will address this behavior and will introduce a simpler API for our future releases.

Thank you for the reported issues. Your Telerik points have been updated.

Sincerely yours,

Hi Ryan,

Sorry for the introduced inconvenience.

Currently we implement a new edition of RadDock control with new dock engine and new simple API to control states of Dock windows. With new RadDock you can control all AutoHide, Floating, Dock states (Size, Location, AutoHide Pos, etc.)  and this changes will be saved/restored correctly.

The new edition of RadDock will be delay for Q2 2009, however soon after Q1 2009 we will introduce Beta version. Do not hesitate to write me back if you have further questions.

Greetings,
