Bharath,

Saving document layout info isn't an option yet in this version but we do have it on the TODO list. Right now it only saves tool window info.

Can you please tell me when this will be implemented. I am attempting to switch from a competitor's dock manager to you'rs.
Lack of this feature is preventing the move.

Hi Eric,

For the next month or two, we're tied up with these items:
http://blog.actiprosoftware.com/post/2010/03/16/What-wee28099re-working-on-in-early-2010.aspx

After that, we'll likely get back into some new Docking/MDI features. Document layout saving is one of the top TODO items on our list for that product since it has been requested by numerous customers.

Hi,

Is there a workaround for this? i.e. can we achieve the same manually somehow until its fixed in the product?

cheers

Hi Mark,

The layout file is just XML. Really you could iterate through the tabbed MDI hierarchy (TabbedMdiHost, TabbedMdiContainer, DockingWindow) and save your own custom XML at the same time, then read that back out when you go to reload a layout and try to position things in the same place. That's effectively what we'll be doing when we implement this too although we will have the data all in the main layout XML file.

Once our Silverlight controls are out we plan on starting a new round of Docking updates and document layout saving is one item we will address.

Hello,

Just fyi, we've added support for serializing/deserializing the entire DockSite layout (including the Workspace), in addition to a number of other features.

You can see this in action in the current version of WPF Studio.
