sample link hosted on zippyshare

In this sample, when you launch it:
-you can check the listviewitem called 'toto' (this call the AddDockTab() method)
-you can uncheck the listviewitem called 'toto' (this call the DelDockTab() method) but nothing happens.

Any idea ?

Hi Patrice,

Thank you for contacting Telerik support.

The remove does not work because AddDocument method is used when DocumentWindow is added. And actually DocumentWindow is added rather the ToolWindow. You can add a ToolWindow with the following method:
Me.radDock1.DockWindow(myToolWindow, DockPosition.Left)

If you want to use DocumentWindows you can recreate you methods for example like this:
Private Sub AddDockTab()
    Dim myToolWindow As New DocumentWindow
    myToolWindow.Name = "ToolWindow_" & RadDock1.DockWindows.Count
    myToolWindow.Text = "Onglet n°" & RadDock1.DockWindows.Count
 
    myToolWindow.DocumentButtons = DocumentStripButtons.None      
    myToolWindow.CloseAction = DockWindowCloseAction.CloseAndDispose
 
    Dim myCustomRadScheduler As New CustomControls.AvrScheduler.CustomRadScheduler()
    myCustomRadScheduler.Dock = DockStyle.Fill
 
    Dim myCustomRadSchedulerNavigator As New CustomControls.AvrScheduler.CustomRadSchedulerNavigator()
    myCustomRadSchedulerNavigator.Dock = DockStyle.Top
    myCustomRadSchedulerNavigator.AssociatedScheduler = myCustomRadScheduler
 
    'Don't change order !
    myToolWindow.Controls.Add(myCustomRadScheduler)
    myToolWindow.Controls.Add(myCustomRadSchedulerNavigator)
 
    RadDock1.AddDocument(myToolWindow)
End Sub
 
Private Sub DelDockTab()
    For Each tDockWindow As DocumentWindow In RadDock1.DockWindows.DocumentWindows.ToArray()
 
        RadDock1.CloseWindow(tDockWindow)
    Next
End Sub

Also I have noticed that the code samples in our documentation articles are switched, which may have misguided you to the use the AddDocument method. I will fix this and it will appear correctly the next time the documentation is uploaded.

I hope this helps. Should you have any other questions do not hesitate to ask.

the line needs to be commented and it's ok but i don't know why...

Hello Patrice,

Despite that the close action is set to CloseAndDispose you should also include the Hidden dock state if you want to restrict the states and to be able to remove the documents programmatically:
myToolWindow.AllowedDockState = AllowedDockState.Floating Or AllowedDockState.TabbedDocument Or AllowedDockState.Hidden

Also another way to close all document windows is to use the RemoveAllDocumentWindows method:
radDock1.RemoveAllDocumentWindows(DockWindowCloseAction.Close)

Please let me know if there is something else I can help you with.
