Converting LayoutFile from DockableWindows

Docking/MDI for Windows Forms Forum

With the next version of the software I'm working on, we switch from DockableWindows to UIStudio.
It would be nice when the window layout, which is saved to a file when the application closes,
kept working with the next version.

Is it possible to load window layouts saved by DockableWindows (<dockable-window-layout version="2.0">)
with UIStudio? Or is there a converter?

Regards,
Michael

Hi Michael,

Unfortunately there isn't a way to convert the layout over. The design of UIStudio docking controls are much better in that they dock to the outside of the container control as opposed to requiring a control that fills the container control, meaning the information stored is a little different. This newer design allows for standard MDI to be implemented.
