Hi, The reason for tying up the DockingManager with a Form was a result of opting for a design that would allow users to create a VS.NET type docking windows implementation with as little effort as possible. Making the design generic enough to be used in a ContainerControl would have required users to provide additional initialization code for issues such as persistence, toolbar interaction, MDIClient layout accomodations etc., Considering that the Form-based approach is the most commonly used one, we decided to make the design a form-centric one. I will go ahead and file a feature-request and, though a time-frame cannot be guaranteed, we will try to accomodate this request in a future release of Essential Tools. Prakash Syncfusion, Inc.
