I have another issue related to the previous issue I have posted with the subject "Tabbed Windows".
I have 2 classes of windows in my application: Browser types and Editor types. In the application the browser type windows appear on the left hand side as tabbed windows and the editor type windows appear as tabbed windows on the right hand side (see screenshot1). What I wish to do is when I resize the browser tabbed window it should resize the editor type windows (so as to fill the space) and vice versa.

Hello Nitin Mehra,

I am sorry about this delay in responding.

Regarding your query, if your intension is to achieve resizing of one form should resize the other form in the tabbed window, this will done automatically. I have attached a sample that shows this functionality in the following link - http://websamples.syncfusion.com/samples/Tools.Windows/F64003/main.htm

I have attached the video file for your reference - http://www.syncfusion.com/Support/user/uploads/TabbedWindows_dcf216d.zip

Please look into the above details and let me know if it helps.

Also if I have misunderstood your requirement, could you please explain me in detail, so that I can work in
depth and try to send a better solution?

Thanks for using Syncfusion products.

Best Regards,

Syncfusion, Inc.

I think the video that you have shown is that of a tabbed mdi form. while what I am using are dockingmanager tabbed style. Can i use both?
What I tried myself was; docking the two types on the left (screenshot1) but now the right hand side also moves when I move the splitter (screenshot2).

Hi Nitin,

Sorry for the delay in responding.

We have to set the DockToFill property of the DockingManager to true so that there will be no more free space on the Host Form after we have changed the dockstate of any of the docked controls.

this.dockingManager1.DockToFill = true;

Please try this and let me know if this helps you.

Best regards,

Thanks alot, it worked. I am unable to understand, the manual states that:
The DockToFill option should not be set when the host form is an MDIContainer or if it contains an instance of the DockingClientPanel control

and i think the my app is an mdi container.

Thanks a ton
