    I will be using version 2013 2 717 of the ASP.NET for AJAX controls.

    Q.  Can you tell me what you officially support with regards to resizing RadDocks that have their DockMode set to Docked?

    Q.  From reading various forum posts, it seems that the resize feature is only "officially supported" when the docks are floating.  Is that correct?  I've seen javascript workarounds for when RadDocks are docked, but when I implement the workarounds I still encounter minor bugs that would prevent me from using the workarounds.

    Q.  Do you know if you plan to support height and width resizing RadDocks that have their DockMode set to Docked in the future?

    Hi Brent,

    Currently the RadDocks that are placed in a RadDockZone can be resized only in the boundaries of the dock zone. For example, if you have a dock in a vertically oriented dock zone and there is space below the dock, you can grab only the bottom handle to resize it. This can be examined in the online demo Dock Resizing.

    As you can check in the linked demo, the resizing is supported when the docks are docked as well, however it is limited in this case. The JavaScript workarounds you found are most probably related to allowing the dock to resize beyond the dock zone, in which it is placed.

    Including such functionality is not planned at the moment. Nevertheless, you can log the feature request in our Ideas & Feedback portal by describing it in detail and we will consider implementing it if it becomes popular.
