Default docking size for floating windows

Docking/MDI for WPF Forum

I am displaying a number of floating ToolWindows at runtime that can also be docked by the user. What I can't understand, is how to keep the size (width or height depending if it's docked on left/right or top/bottom) that the ToolWindow has when floating, when it's docked.

At the moment I tried achieving this using the following

private void DockSite_WindowStateChanged(object sender, DockingWindowStateChangedEventArgs e)
    if (e.NewValue == DockingWindowState.Docked)
        UserControl uc = (e.Window.Content as UserControl);
        DockSite.SetControlSizeForState(e.Window, uc.RenderSize, DockingWindowState.Docked);

 But to no avail; if I debug the code, I can see that the values are correctly set by calling GetControlSizeForState, but what is on screen is different.

How can I solve this?

Hi Gian,

You can't set the ControStateForSize property value there as it will be too late.  You'd need to set it prior to the docking operation occurring.  So perhaps in the DockSite's WindowDragging or in the WindowContextMenu event (before any of those commands can execute).

Thanks a lot, I feel kind of dumb as I have been reading the event name as WindowStateChangING for the last 2 days, and was wondering why it didn't work..

The latest build of this product (v24.1.2) was released 2 months ago, which was after the last post in this thread.
