This is a change from older versions, in the source you can see that when doing the float it now passes false into the show state. Is this a bug or do i need to change the way i call the code public virtual void FloatControl(Control ctrl, Rectangle rcscreen) { // Pad the rcscreen value for the floating form''s caption height and border widths Size bordersize = SystemInformation.FrameBorderSize; rcscreen.Height += SystemInformation.ToolWindowCaptionHeight + (bordersize.Height*2) + 2; rcscreen.Width += (bordersize.Width*2) + 2; // The DockHost borders add on 2 pixels DockHostController dhc = this.GetDockHostController(ctrl); if(dhc == null) { if(this.alEnableDocking.Contains(ctrl) == false) this.alEnableDocking.Add(ctrl); // Create a new dockhost for this control and set the initial pos to be floating DockHost dhost = this.CreateDockHost(ctrl); Debug.Assert(dhost != null); dhc = dhost.InternalController as DockHostController; dhc.DINew = new DockInfo(null, Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.DockingStyle.Fill, -1, 0, DockPreference.None, rcscreen); dhost.DragRectangle = rcscreen; dhc.CreateFloatingFrame(rcscreen.Location, false);

as a follow up to demonstrate this problem if you modify the SimpleCode docking sample and move the call to InitializeDockingWindows into a uttonclick handler ie create docks etc after the form has been shown then the floating windows will not appear... i dont think it had thios problem in the 50 build...
