Docking Manager boundaries not expanding with form size

In the designer, on a form I''ve been developing for four months that is managed by DockingManager, when all the docked controls are floating, there is a thin horizontal grey line visible that appears to mark the boundary of the space managed by docking manager. When I increase the size of the form in the designer, this space is not incrasing to fill the increased space of the form. The controls remain docked against this line, leaving a margin along the edge of blank form sapce. Second, the line seems to change, sometimes it has been at the top of the form and sometimes at the bottom. I didn''t remember To test this, I created a new form, added DockingManager and four panels. On the new form, if I tear of the panels so they are floating, there are no visbile horizontal lines. When I load the form, the boundary seems to go away, except that all the controls move up and leave a large piece of unfilled space at the bottom of the form. With the DocktoFill bug in the manager, it is a bit painful in docking land. So, my question is how can I fix this apparently arbitrary restriction on my form space? Thanks, Kenton

Hi Kenton, Sorry for the delay in responding. 1) Could you please post a screenshot of the Horizontal likes that you are seeing. 2) The DockToFill issues have been addressed in this release[3.0.0.19]. Please take a look at it and let me know if you still see the issues in this version also. http://64.78.18.34/Support/forums/message.aspx?MessageID=21967 Thanks. Best regards, Stephen. > >In the designer, on a form I''ve been developing for four months that is managed by DockingManager, when all the docked controls are floating, there is a thin horizontal grey line visible that appears to mark the boundary of the space managed by docking manager.

I have the same problem with panels, I have a control that I want to doc and used the Standard windows panel for docking and had to rebuild the window to get rid of the lines. > >In the designer, on a form I''ve been developing for four months that is managed by DockingManager, when all the docked controls are floating, there is a thin horizontal grey line visible that appears to mark the boundary of the space managed by docking manager.

I am experiencing the same problem, but only on my laptop that has 1920 x 1200 resolution. The line appears at the top, and it looks like there is an invisible toolbar that is taking up space. Once I resize one of panels docked on the left, the line goes away.

I had the same issue. I simply added a sub routine that changed the mdi form''s width by 1 and then back again in the next line whenever the panels where moved. I think it causes a redraw of the form and all the lines and regen strangeness go away.
