Changing the floating state

Am I supposed to track the state of a control when I want to alter its floating state? Example: if I want to switch from MDIChild to FloatNotDockable, calling SetFloatOnly(control,true) should do it, but it doesn't. Am I missing something here?

Looks like the DockingManager.SetFloatOnly(Control, bool) method works as intended only when the Control is a true docking window, and not an MDI child. I will go ahead and file a report and we will fix the problem for a future release of Essential Tools. In the meantime, you can workaround this condition by first setting the control as a docking window through the DockingManager.SetAsMDIChild(Control, false) method and then calling the SetFloatOnly() method. The following code should give you an idea, if(this.dwCurrent.Parent is Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.DockingWrapperForm) { // The docking window is set as an MDI child this.dockingManager1.SetAsMDIChild(this.dwCurrent, false); this.dockingManager1.SetFloatOnly(this.dwCurrent, true); } else { this.dockingManager1.SetFloatOnly(this.dwCurrent, true); } Prakash Syncfusion
