Asked On July 21, 2006 04:34 PM UTC

We have run into a problem trying to load the state of docking controls using Syncfusion Our application has an OverviewControl that is docked to the mainform in the designer and is initially hidden on load. An Invalid Cast assertion is raised in the method DocToFormController in DockingMgr.cs during the call to LoadDockState. This same code worked correctly in

Attached is a modified version of the DiagramBuilder sample that shows this problem. To reproduce the problem, do the following:

1. Open the DiagramBuilder
2. Close the DiagramBuilder (to save the docking state)
3. Open the DiagramBuilder again.

You don''t even need to open the OverviewControl to see the problem.

We are using VS 2005 with .Net 2.0. We would appreciate any help you can provide.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Chris C.

I have one more piece of information that I just discovered. The problem only occurs when the OverviewControl is initially docked under the Property Editor or the Symbol Palette. It does not occur when it is docked at the bottom center, under the diagram area.

Thanks so much for your quick repsonse. Is this fix available in the service pack release that is available through Direct-Trac. If so, could you please provide a key so we can download this service pack?

Thanks in advance for your help?
