Hi Our application dynamically adds docking windows at runtime with the .DockControl() method call, and then after loading applies a layout (based on user login) with LoadDockState(AppStateSerializer, control) per control we previously loaded (at launch time, pre login).. My question - is there any way of calling some type of SuspendLayout/ResumeLayout on the DockingManager to prevent the docking windows from jumping around while loading the user based layout? I have tried the BeginInit & EndInit method calls, but these just render the docked windows non visible... remembering that i add these controls at runtime prevents me from saving the complete DockingManager layout, therefore resorting to the per control LoadDockState method.

Hi Mark, Presently there is no equivalent to SuspendLayout/ResumeLayout in the docking windows framework. But please refer to the following KB article for information regarding runtime docking windows creation : How do I save/load docking state information of an application that has docking windows created at runtime ? available at this link below : http://www.syncfusion.com/Support/article.aspx?id=10413 Let me know if you need further assistance. We appreciate your interest in Syncfusion products. Regards, Guru Patwal Syncfusion, Inc.

>Presently there is no equivalent to SuspendLayout/ResumeLayout in the docking windows framework. I''m just wondering if you are planning to introduce this feature in a future release? It really irritates our users since we typically have lots of controls on a form and control''s redrawing might take significant amount of time, depending on the size of dataset it''s attached to.
