Docking Manager - DataContext lost

When I place content within the DockingManager hierarchy, the DataContext set above the DockingManager is initializing properly down to the content elements. When I alter a docked item (ex: select auto-hide, grab the title bar and begin a window drag) I'm finding that the DataContext is getting set to null. I believe this happens because the control is being temporarily moved out of the logical hierarchy which DataContext flows down. I do not see the DataContext getting reset, so once I use the dock controls - the DataContext is lost.

I have tried setting the DataContext directly onto my content elements but this causes different errors and would not be a clean solution.

I am using a trial version I downloaded yesterday (4/16/09) of Essential Tools - WPF.

Any suggestions? Thanks for any help.

Hi Steve,

We suspect that, you might be using trial version of We regret for the inconvenience caused. We had some issue related to DataContext in DockingManger. We already aware about these issues and we have internally fixed all the issues which are related to DataContext. All these fixes will be available in our Vol – II release which is scheduled on last week of this month. If you need our custom assembly urgently, please create a separate Direct-Trac incident [https://www.syncfusion.com/Support/DirectTrac/logon.aspx] about this with assembly request and update us. We will prepare and provide you a custom assemblies.

Please let me know if any other concerns.
