    Hi ,

    I have done an application,in that we have 3 split panels,in the 3rd split panel i have added Rad Dock control .In this Rad dock we are adding 3 Tool Windows programatically.My problem is when any of the Tool window is Docked it is not occupying the whole Rad Dock space[means Dock fill].and if all the 3 tool windows are Auto hide[means not dock able] we want the Split panel 2 should occupy half of the space of Split panel3.

    Please find the  attached images.

    Thank you,

    This may not help you specifically, but in my case it was solved by setting the RadDock's MainDocumentContainerVisible to false. This seems to be needed if all your regions are simply toolwindows, and there's no "main" MDI type zone defined.

    I have Split container with split panels. I have a user control with a tree control in it.
    I would like dock it to left panel (same size of the panel). How can I dock it to parent panel?
    I am using leftTopPanel.Controls.Add(new test()); to add control. And test() is my user control.

    How can I dock this control to parent panel?

    Thanks for the help

    Hello Seshu,

    Thank you for contacting us.

    You can use the UserControl.Dock property to dock it to the parent panel:
    public Form1()
        UserControl1 uc = new UserControl1();
        uc.Dock = DockStyle.Fill;

    I hope this information helps. Should you have further questions, I would be glad to help.
