Using C++/CLI. Is there any way to have my mainframe class (the hostform) size and position saved/restored as part of the Save/Load DockState calls?

The code that allocates/inits the dock manager:

m_pDockingManager = (gcnew Syncfusion::Windows::Forms::Tools::DockingManager(this->components));
m_pDockingManager->HostForm = this;
m_pDockingManager->AllowTabsMoving = true;
m_pDockingManager->AnimationStep = 2;
m_pDockingManager->VisualStyle = Syncfusion::Windows::Forms::VisualStyle::Office2007;
m_pDockingManager->PersistState = true;
m_pDockingManager->EnableContextMenu = true;
m_pDockingManager->EnableAutoHideTabContextMenu = true;
m_pDockingManager->MenuButtonEnabled = true;
m_pDockingManager->MaximizeButtonEnabled = true;
m_pDockingManager->CloseEnabled = true;
m_pDockingManager->DockControlActivated += gcnew Syncfusion::Windows::Forms::Tools::DockActivationChangedEventHandler(this, &mainframe::ActiveDocumentChanged);

Hi Ben,

Save and Load DockState Calls only serialize and deserialize control's docking state information. It doesn't stores the controls size and position. However, this can be performed by serializing form Bounds and retrieve/deserialize them manually and position the form as per available serialized information.

Can you please create a DT incident if you have more queries on this?
