Can't set label of floating control !

DockingManager.SetDockLabel() does not work for floating controls. There appears to be no way to set the caption. The caption always reverts to "GroupControl"... ("GroupControl" happens to be the name of the class wrapped by the syncFusion floating window.) Using the control.Text property (or control.Parent.Text) doesn't seem to work either. David

David, We can reproduce this issue here. It's just that we don't refresh the floating label when you change the docklabel. We will fix this in our next patch release. Regards, Praveen Ramesh

FYI: The workaround that I'm using is: control.Parent.Parent.Text="Label";

Well the workaround is still good but this has not been fixed yet in the release.

Hi Chuck, This problem was very recently fixed.Starting with the next update of Essential Tools, the SetDockLabel() method will correctly change the caption of floating windows. Prakash Syncfusion
