I have a requirement for functionality similar to VS 2008 in which you can have some windows either docked or as tabbed documents (eg: Output Window). Is there a way to do this with DockingManager and DocumentContainer?

We want to be able to drag windows from a DocumentContainer (in TDI mode) out so that they become floating and dockable. We also want to be able to drag a dockable window into a DocumentContainer to become a tabbed document.

Hi Peter,

Thanks for your interests in Syncfusion products.

Current version of Essential Studio does not have such a feature. But the integration of Document Container with Docking Manger has been implemented. We are glad to inform you that this feature will be available in our Vol-4 release scheduled on second week of October. Using which you can achieve your requirements.

Please let us know if you have any queries.

The preview is out now, but I still can't find out how to do it...
Would be great to have this feature very soon!

Hi Sebastian,

Thanks for your interests in Syncfusion products.

We have already implemented the integration of DockingManager with DocumentContainer and it is already available in our VOL-4 RC1 release.

Along with this update we are sending you a sample which has an architecture that allows child controls to be docked to any part of the window, as in Visual Studio. The dock panels containing the child elements can then be interactively dragged and dropped to any area within the window. These can also be floated and AutoHidden during run time and also the to switch between the MDI/TDI windows with window switchers. Kindly download the sample from the below mentioned location for more information.


Please let us know if you have any queries.
