Edge Arrows do not seem to work properly

Docking/MDI for Windows Forms Forum

When dragging there are four arrows of the main window on the edges, these don't seem to allow the dragged tool window to be docked along the entire edge, but instead work as the four/square arrows to dock with another window.

Any suggestions?

Thank you for posting this issue.  This is caused when the outside dock guide (edge arrow) also happens to be positioned over a tool window. If there are no tool windows on the same edge, the docking behaves as expected.

A fix has been implemented for the next maintenance release.

Is there an ETA on the release?

Hi Tom,

Not yet but if you'd like a preview build with the updates we have made so far for the next maintenance release, please write our support address.

The latest build of this product (v24.1.0) was released 2 months ago, which was before the next post in this thread.

Downloaded the 24.1 release and this still seems to be an issue.

Hi Tom,

Thank you for bringing this to our attention, and I'm very sorry it wasn't properly resolved for you.  It appears the prior fix only solved part of the problem and an additional update was necessary.  The full fix will be in the next maintenance release, but you can write our support address and ask for a preview build if you'd like it sooner.  Just reference this forum post in your request.

Hi Tom,

We don't have a target date for the next maintenance release quite yet, as there's only a couple changes collected thus far.  

Even if you don't wish to use it in your production app, it would be helpful if you could temporarily test the preview build prior to the maintenance release to verify the fix in your app.
