Steps to reproduce:
1. Run the MDIDemo from your sample browser (found in the Docking Package).
2. Drag Notes 2 and make it floating.
3. Resize Notes 2 so that the height of window is as small as you can get it (ie. All you can see is the Notes 2 title bar).
4. Drag and dock to the bottom most area of the MDI Demo form (release on the mouse button when you're over the bottom most icon displayed while dragging).
5. Notice that the window has disappeared and there is no way to get it back.

So, this leads to the following question. Is it possible to set a minimum size to a floating window such that when a user resizes one it cannot get smaller than a set minimum size?

If this cannot be done is there any other solution to the problem?

Hi Brain,

THank you for bringing this issue into our notice. We have logged a defect report and informed to our development team in this regard. Our development team engineer will update the defect report link and time frame needed to fix the issue within 2 days of time.

We could set docked control Minimum size by using this dockingManager1.SetControlMinimumSize method. Herewith I have attached the sample. Please refer to this and let me know if it helps you.
