Asked On June 15, 2004 04:15 PM UTC

In my SDI form using the docking manager, after all the controls are docked, there is a piece of form real estate that the DM seems own that prevents the control that was last docked from filling the entire space. I''ve uploaded a picture of this with a rectangle drawn around it. In this picture, all the docked controls are panels with other controls on them. At the bottom you see this rectangular space to which the bottom of the Item Detail panel is docked. The border between the two can be dragged down till the rectangle is about 6 or 8 pixels wide. However, I would like the Item Details panel lower border to dock to the outside of the form. I should also note that this space could exist between any of the controls and/or borders of the form, depending on how you dock the controls. Can this be done? Thanks, Kenton Kenton_Hensely_DockingMangerSDISpace_784.zip

Hi Kenton, Sorry for the delay in responding. Could you please open a Direc Trac incident in this regard. A Direc Trac incident would guarantee you much faster replies. Also , if possible could you send a sample application where this problem could be seen. It would greatly help us in suggesting a solution. Sorry for the inconvenience. Thanks. Best regards, Stephen. >In my SDI form using the docking manager, after all the controls are docked, there is a piece of form real estate that the DM seems own that prevents the control that was last docked from filling the entire space.

I''m having the same issue, and it tends to occur just where yours does - in the middle bottom. I have 2 docking panels, one above the other, and the bottom one won''t fill the entire space, it leaves the empty space. Syncfusion - any suggestions? >Thank you for the response. > >I will put a sample together when my deadline has passed and get it in Direct Trac. > >--Kenton

Hi Sandra, Please refer to the attached word document with the screenshots .In the sample the empty space occurs when you dock panel2 and three to the top/bottom of the form. Please follow the steps mentioned below to avoid the empty space without using the DockToFill mode. Please refer to the screenshots and explanation in this word document ScreenShots Please let me know if you have any questions. Thanks.

Hi Bryan,

Sorry for the inconvenience caused.

Currently, the document is unavailable with our server. Could you please confirm whether the reported requirement is to fill the docked controls without empty space? if so, you can achieve it by enabling the property named “DockToFill” in DockingManager. Please check the following code example.

Code Example [C#]:

//Enables the DockToFill property.
this.dockingManager1.DockToFill = true;



Additionally, address the below queries. It would be helpful to provide you a better solution accordingly.

1)     Please confirm what kind of issues are you facing in your application?
2)     If possible, share us the sample or video that demonstrate reported issue.

Thanks,
Saravanan T
