Docking control does not show any controls


I cannot get the docking control to work.

I installed Created a new project in VS2015 (14.0.25431.01 Update 3), followed the instructions at https://help.syncfusion.com/uwp/sfdockingmanager/getting-started

App runs but no controls are shown.

Below is the code:


    <layout:SfDockingManager x:Name="docking">

        <ContentControl x:Name="SolutionExplorer"/>

        <ContentControl x:Name="ToolBox"/>

        <ContentControl x:Name="Properties"/>

        <ContentControl x:Name="Output"/>

        <ContentControl x:Name="StartPage"/>

Hi Cheung,

Thank you for contacting Syncfusion Support.

We have prepared the sample based on updated code sample but we could not reproduce the reported behavior. Please check the video and if you are reporting the same behavior as shown in video; then, it is not an issue. It is the default behavior of SfDockingManager. If you want to show dock window header you can set Header attached property of SfDockingManager. We have prepared for the sample for the same. Please download the sample from the following link.

Hi Marimuthu

The attached project worked. Not sure why my project does not work, I will continue testing.
