Hi,  I'm creating my dockpanels in code(in a CAB workitem to be precise).

No matter what setting of the dockpanel I change, or call PerformLayout, etc..it always grows the panel to the entire width of the form.(The docking managers total available space)

The dock manager is in a usercontrol that is in a tab page of a radtabstrip.  It covers the workable area of the form(below a ribbon bar).

What can do to fix this?!

DockPanel dockPanel = new DockPanel();
dockPanel.Text =
"Solution Navigator";
hostControl.DockManager.SetDock(dockPanel, DockPosition.Left);
dockPanel.PreferredDockSize =
new System.Drawing.Size(50, 50);
dockPanel.PreferredFloatSize =
new System.Drawing.Size(50, 50);
dockPanel.Size =
new System.Drawing.Size(100, dockPanel.Size.Height);
hostControl.DockManager.PerformLayout(dockPanel,
"Size");d
ockPanel.Show();

Hello David Conroy,

By default when you add DockPanel in an empty DockingManager, it grows to fill the entire size of docking manager.
To change this behavior you may set TdiContainerVisible to true, and initialize as required the Size property of DockPanel.  

Kind regards,

I'm using the free trial of Winforms, I have no such property on the dockmanager or the dockpanel.

Hello DConroy,

TdiContainerVisible is a property of DockingManager (Behavior category in the properties grid).
Please download Q1 2007 release.

That did it, thanks.

I love the way the document system works too...

Hmm, doesn't seem to be working any more in Q3?  Is this broken now?

We set true...

dockingManager.TdiContainerVisible =

true;

then set Height...roundedPanel.Height = widget.Height;

but docking manager seems to take over and set whatever height it pleases...?

Thoughts appreciated...

Hello Gary,

Thank you for writing.

We have found issues related to the layout operation after changing the size from the Width or Height properties of DockPanel. These will be addressed in our upcoming release. Please use the Size property of DockPanel for the resizing operation.

If you have any additional questions, please contact us.

All the best,
