I'm using control I have made as a docking windows.
There are some cases that I want to use it during runtime like a modal dialog (Form). I also need to control its size to warp it inter control.

How can I do that?

Hi Sharon,

Thank you for your interest in Syncfusion products.

You can show the floating control as a dialog using our dockingManager. Please refer to the below sample that demonstrates this completely.


Please let me know if you have any questions.

Thansk, It's working.
But I also need to swtich between floating control as a dialog and the docking control.

How can I switch from docking to floating dialog, and from floating dialog to docking?

Thanks & Regards

Hi Sharon,

Thank you for your update.

According to your requirement I have created a simple sample that switches between the float dialog to docking and vice versa. Please refer to the sample in the following link:
