Im using docking manager in an MDI application. In the application different form are docked in docking manager. I need to change a particular form (say form x) to modal dialog. I have added a menu item say MakeModal in the form which has to be made modal dialog (form x). In the MakeModal menuitem click event handler, I have removed the form from Docking manager by, form.TopLevel = true; form.Visible = false; form.ShowDialog(); Now at some point of time in the application i need to dock the form again in the docking manager. To do this I have added the following code in the MakeDock menuItem event handler. form.TopLevel = false; this.dockingManager.DockControl(form, this, Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.DockingStyle.Bottom,150); When i click MakeModal, I am able to make the form as modal. But when I again dock the form to the docking manager using MakeDock menuitem, I am not getting the form displayed. Kindly let me know whether it is possible to dock that form again in the docking manager.

Sorry I have missed a line in the MakeModal menu item event handler, this.dockingManager.SetEnableDocking(form,false); form.TopLevel = true; form.Visible = false; form.ShowDialog();
