Adding Controls Code Behind

I have already added controls into the DockingManager in code behind.But the visual formatting (Size, DockingMode etc,..) are not like I set them:   ViolationsControl panel = new ViolationsControl();                Size size = new Size(600, 400);                DockingManager.SetDesiredMinWidthInFloatingMode(panel, size.Width);                DockingManager.SetDesiredMinHeightInFloatingMode(panel, size.Height);         DockingManager.SetDesiredMinWidthInDockedMode(panel, size.Width);         DockingManager.SetDesiredMinHeightInDockedMode(panel, size.Height);        DockingManager.SetShowInTaskbar(panel, value);               DockingManager.SetState(panel, DockState.Float);           Singleton.SyncDockingManager.Children.Add(panel);The control isn't floating. The size isn't 600x400 and it isn't shown in the taskbar.It appear on the top left corner of the screen, with a size of 40x62 (or something small like that).It seems like the DockingManager.Set DP doesn't do anything.Am I missing something?Thanks in advancePS: Setting the DP after the control has been loaded, doesn't work either.PPS: I don't know why, but the formatting of this post is kinda strange. If I change it it ends up in one single line.

Hi Thomas,

Thank you for contacting Syncfusion support.

We have checked your query "Setting the DP after DockingManager control has been loaded, doesn't work". We have prepared the sample to meet your requirement, in this sample we have set the SetFloatingWindowRect attached property of DockingManager to update the float window position and size. Please download the sample for the same from the below link.

Sample: DockingManager_Codebehind

                DockingManager.SetFloatingWindowRect(panel, new Rect(200, 200, size.Width, size.Height));

was missing.
