DocumentWindow: how can I set size?

Docking/MDI for Windows Forms Forum

Posted 12 years ago by Gianni Gardini - Italy

I'm working in "Standard Mode":
dockManager.DocumentMdiStyle = DocumentMdiStyle.Standard;
dockManager.DefaultMdiWindowState = FormWindowState.Normal;
When I create a new DocumentWindow, the starting default size is always:
.Size = {Width=292 Height=266}

How can I set a default start size?

I'm trying various methods with no effects.

Test 1 (not working)

DocumentWindow dw = new DocumentWindow(this.dockManager, title, title, image, childControl);
dw.SetBounds(dw.Location.X, dw.Location.Y, mySize.Height, mySize.Width);
Test 2 (not working)

dw.Height = mySize.Height;
dw.Width = mySize.Width;
Test 3 (not working)

dw.Size = mySize;

Hi there, you can use the StandardMdiBounds property of the DocumentWindow to control where it is and what size.

it seems to work.
The latest build of this product (v2018.1 build 0341) was released 3 months ago, which was after the last post in this thread.
