Tool window layout - filling the entire form

Docking/MDI for Windows Forms Forum

I am evaluating UIStudio and am having difficulties with the docking manager. I'm trying to dock 5 windows but can never get the last one to fill the remaining space in the form. There is always some gap left over between the last tool window and the edge of the form. I've tried using the DockTo() method but didn't have any luck there either. How can I fill the entire form? Can it be done at design time?

Thanks,
Lisa

Hi Lisa,

Most people want to have a client area when they use tool windows. So what you are seeing is the client area of the host.

With UIStudio, we made it so that we can accommodate all needs though... take a look at the DockManager.DocumentMdi property. It has several settings that affect the style of MDI/client area that is used. If you set it to ToolWindowInnerFill, it removes the client area and allows tool windows to fill the entire form.
