    I am in the process of implementing a docking system but I don't want to use the docking manager since I don't want a majority of the features offered by the entire docking manager.

    I was trying to just use the DockPresenterControl with the captionbar and the tabstrip at the bottom. Is there anyway I can use the DockPresenterControl by itself without implementing it in a docking manager?

    I tried doing this but for some reason, it refuses to show itself unless it is associated with a docking manager.

    Any help will be greatly appreciated. If more details are needed, let me know :)

    Hi Jet Blazer,

    Currently the implementation of DockPresenterControl depends solely on RadDock. In your case you can write your own dock presenter control using our code base from DockPresenterControl, DockPresenterElement, and their children items (DockPresenterLayout, DockPresenterCaptionElement, DockContentPrimitive, RadTabStripElement). You should use the presentation logic created in DockPresenterElement but don't implement our docking interfaces like IDockable, ISupportDockingInternal, IDockTarget.

    I hope this helps.
