Hello,

How to configure the MaxWidth and MaxHeight of the floating windows? I need that the floating windows fill all the screen.

Thanks.

Hi Jorge,

Thank you for using Syncfusion products.

We have inherited the float window from Popup class. Due to the restrictions in Microsoft popup control Float window will not be maximized or resized up to window size or more than 80% of the screen size. We have already logged the feature report to inherit the window class instead of popup class for floating window. This floating window feature will be implemented in feature releases of Syncfusion Essential Studio. If you wish to get this feature as Patch please log your floating window query through our Direct-Trac System.

Please find the following link for Direct-Trac system:

Also please refer the link that explains the behavior of Popup control.

Please let us know if you have any queries.

Regards,
Sakthi

Regarding Item: 100293 DockingManager floating windows dated: August 1, 2011 04:33 AM below.  We have Essential Studio 2012 Volume 3 and this issue does not seem to be fixed.  We would like to float a child window and maximize it on a second monitor, similar to Visual Studio.  Is float window still inherits from Popup class?
thanks.

Hi Steven ,

We have implemented a new feature "UseNativeFloatWindow" in DockingManager for Floating windows.By setting UseNativeFloatWindow as True ,the NativeFloatWindow which is inherited from window is created for FloatState. We recommend you to use the UseNativeFloatWindow property to resolve the issue that you have faced by using normal FloatWinodw inherited from Pop up.

For more information about NativeFloatWindow, please refer the below link

Please let us know if you have any concerns.
