Hi there,

While there is a good reason for docks not to be resizable horizontally when docked could you tell what prevents implementing vertical resize? And is there any workaround to make docks resizable?

Thank you,
Valery.

Hello Valery,

The RadDock is created to be used as a layout control and it is most often used to be docked in a RadDockZone with FitDocks= true(RadDock's width is 100%). In this case the width of the RadDock must be "controlled from the RadDockZone", not from the end user. So we decided to disable the resize when a RadDock is docked.
Here is a workaround that makes the dock resizable while docked to a zone:
<%@ Register Assembly="Telerik.Web.UI" Namespace="Telerik.Web.UI" TagPrefix="telerik" %>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<head id="Head1" runat="server">
    <title></title>
</head>
<body>
    <form id="form1" runat="server">
    <asp:ScriptManager ID="ScriptManager1" runat="server">
    </asp:ScriptManager>
    <div>
        <telerik:RadDockLayout ID="RadDockLayout1" runat="server">
            <telerik:RadDockZone ID="RadDockZone1" runat="server" Height="300px" Width="500px"
                FitDocks="false">
                <telerik:RadDock ID="RadDock1" runat="server" Width="300px" Title="RadDock-Title"
                    OnClientResizeEnd="ResizeEnd" OnClientInitialize="DockInit" OnClientDockPositionChanged="DockPositionChanged"
                    Resizable="true">
                    <ContentTemplate>
                        <br />
                        <br />
                        <br />
                        <br />
                        <br />
                        CONTENT
                        <br />
                        <br />
                        <br />
                        <br />
                        <br />
                    </ContentTemplate>
                </telerik:RadDock>
            </telerik:RadDockZone>
        </telerik:RadDockLayout>
    </div>
    </form>
 
    <script type="text/javascript">
        //Workaround to make dock resizable whilst docked
        var currentZone;
        Telerik.Web.UI.RadDock.prototype.oldResizeStart = Telerik.Web.UI.RadDock.prototype.onResizeStart;
        Telerik.Web.UI.RadDock.prototype.onResizeStart = function()
        {
            currentZone = this._dockZoneID;
            this._dockZoneID = null;
 
            this.oldResizeStart();
        }
        function ResizeEnd(dock, args)
        {
            dock._dockZoneID = currentZone;
            currentZone = null;
        }
        function DockInit(dock, args)
        {
            dock._configureHandles(true);
        }
        function DockPositionChanged(dock, args)
        {
            dock._configureHandles(true);
        }
        //Workaround to make dock resizable whilst docked        
</script>
 
</body>
</html>
Hope this helps.

Hello Petio,

Thanks incredibly for the supplied code - it worked for me like charm!

Still I think your arguments make perfect sense for horizontal resizing but cannot be applied to that vertical resizing of docks. In general I think that horizontal and vertical axis should be treated differently. So I am going to submit this as a feature request as I think it is worth considering.

Thank you again for your prompt and extremely helpful response!

Best regards,
Valery.

Hi Petio,

Can you give me an status update about the vertical resizing? Because i can't find it in the PITS system.

Thank you in advance.
