I just tried to add some docked elemets through data binding but found no ItemsSource property like in the Ribbon class. Is there any specific reason for this I oversaw and does anyone see a workaround for this?

Hi Sebastian,

DockingManager framework implemented using FrameworkElement class to provide lightweight visual representation for dock/float windows. Framework element doesn’t have support for Items Source feature. We will consider this scenario and try to provide ItemsSource like property in our forthcoming new version releases or service pack releases. We usually have a timeframe of at least three months between releases. The feature implementation would also greatly depend on the factors like product design, code compatibility and complexity. We will get back to you once the feature is implemented.

Thank you for your interest in Syncfusion products.

Are there any updates regarding this subject?!

I'm now able to bind a ObservableCollection to the ItemsSource of a DocumentContainer and that workes.
But it would be great if I could bind my collection to the ItemsSource of a DockingManager.

Kind regards,

Hi Arjan,

Currently we do not provide support to 'add children items through ItemsSource'. We will consult about this feature with our developer and get back to you with the details.

Please let us know if you have any questions.
