I'm trying to save and load the layout from Docking Manager and it seems to work for only Content Controls that are declared in XAML. When I add a Content Control programmatic ally it doesn't save. This entry in the KB seems to suggest this is a supported operation as long as I save after adding them dynamically. 


Is this a supported operation?

Hi Andy,

Thank you for using Syncfusion products.

DockingManager control loads the saved state of DockingManager correctly, when the children collection matches with the Saved state file. You can save and load the dynamically added children by changing its state until the application closes. Since after closing the application, the dynamically added children are removed from the children collection of DockingManager. So on loading it would result in an improper layout.
