Why does the LoadDockState method call in the form's Load event does not have the desired effect ?

Platform: WinForms |
Control: DockingManager |
Published Date: April 30, 2011 |
Last Revised Date: July 10, 2014


The Form’s Load event occurs much before the initialization of docking windows layout, and hence the LoadDockState method call within this event handler does not have any effect.

The DockingManager’s NewDockStateEndLoad event handler would be the right place to do this, since this event get fired just before the docking layout initialization. But it is important to make sure that the LoadDockState gets called only once and it does not lead to an infinite loop situation, because the NewDockStateEndLoad event gets triggerred every time the docking layout changes and every LoadDockState method call leads to a change in docking layout.
