Common DockingManager API vs RadDock Q2 2009 API
Upgrading from DockingManager to RadDock
The new RadDock comes with an upgrade tool within Visual Studio which will help you move from the old DockingManger to the new RadDock. It converts DockingManger's XML layout serialization to the new XML structure of RadDock, so that you do not have to recreate the structure yourself.
NOTE: You may need to remove/redo any custom code related to the docking control, because it may not work with the new docking component. Also, remove any workarounds related to the old DockingManager.
SplitContainer for Windows Forms is a complicated layout control, which
emerged from the new RadDock's layout base (see above). RadSplitContainer is a
composite control which allows you to add many container panels to a form,
separated by splitter(s). It is very handy for creating complex user interfaces
where a selection in one panel determines what objects are shown in another
panel. The splitter makes it very easy for users to resize the panels to fit
their personal liking. What makes RadSplitContainer unique are several features,
which are not available in Microsoft's SplitContainer
