I have a docking manager control being used for roughly most of the bottom of a window (with the ribbon above it in another grid row) when going through the documentation for Docking Manager and using MDI mode, the windows will minimize just fine to the bottom of the docking manager, however once the maximize button is used (a needed feature) the window is either dissapearing, or it is maximizing to a size beyond the dockingmanager size I am not sure which. using the Office White theme it totally dissapears so that I am unable to see any chrome or buttons with which to minimize or refloat the content. any ideas?

Hi Dwayne,

Thank you for using Syncfusion products.

It is an expected behavior of MDI windows to have collapsed title bar in maximized state. We suggest you to create a button and bind its Command to DocumentContainer.RestoreDocumentCommand and bind DockingManager's ActiveDocument as CommandTarget. This button can be used for restoring the maximized document. You can download sample for the same from the following link:

Sample: MDI_MinMaxOptions

Please let us know more details about the requirement if we have misunderstood your query.
