I have an application with several Windows contolled by a Toolbar. Now I want to integrate the Docking Manager on my main Window. Would it be possibel to dock my existing Windows to the dockingManager?

Thanks & regards,

Hi Christian Vogt,

Thank you for contacting Syncfusion Support.

Creation of window as child of Visual is not allowed because window must be the root of the VisualTree. So we cannot add window as child window of DockingManager. We suggest you to use the Window content inside the UserControl and integrate it into DockingManager. If we have misunderstood your query, please update more details about your requirement. This would help us to proceed further.

Durga S.
