Hi, I just have started looking into DockMager. I need to know few thing. It would be great if I can get some sample. I know you guys are known for best support. Q1 Can I OR How Can I dock a control to the one of the side (left/right) Q2 Can I dock a control, which is basically withing a regular tab page. I am asking this because at the design time it would be easy to create a panel of controls on a separate tab page then dock it. There is already lots of control on my form. So I was thinking create these dockable controls on different tab pages, so that it would be easy to manage them at design time. If you could provide some sample them it would be great. Thanks,

Hi Amit, I have created a sample that demonstrates the things you describe: #1: Using DockControl / FloatControl to programatically dock a control to various places. #2: Using a TabControlAdv with DockingManager to create a group of dockable controls. Please let me know if you have any questions regarding this sample. Regards, Gregory Austin Syncfusion Inc.

I didn''t do it any thing special. this.dockingManager.DockControl(this.pnlFlowChartSelection, this, DockingStyle.Right, 300); this.dockingManager.SetDockLabel(this.pnlFlowChartSelection, "FlowChart Selction"); my panel is on a hidden tab page. thanks

Oh, ok. I thought you had windows docked inside your tab control (which is not possible). I see what you did now. Thanks.
