Hi guys,

I want to add a CustomDocumentWindow to a TabbedMdiContainer programmatically.
How can I do that?

Henrique

Hi Henrique,

Just call CustomDocumentWindow.Activate(). That should add it.

Hi,

I'm posting my code to help you to identify my problem.

private void menu_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
{
    DocumentWindow wnd = null;

    switch ((e.Source as MenuItem).CommandParameter.ToString())
    {
        case "Contrato/Solicitacao/NovoContrato.aspx":
             wnd = new Contrato.Solicitacao.wNovoContrato();
             break;
    }

    wnd.Width = double.NaN;
    wnd.Height = double.NaN;

    wnd.Activate(true);
}
This is throwing the error:
This operation is invalid since the DockingWindow has not yet been registered with a DockSite.

To prevent this error, I'm adding the CustomDocumentWindow to TabbedMdiContainer before activating it.

Is there another way to do that?

Regards,

Henrique

Ahh your custom DocumentWindow class must be calling the parameterless contructor of DocumentWindow. When making windows programmatically, you need to call the contructor that accepts a DockSite parameter. Change your code to that and it should work.

There are samples in our main Features demo like:
// Create the document
DocumentWindow documentWindow = new DocumentWindow(dockSite, name, title, 
    new BitmapImage(new Uri("/Resources/Images/TextDocument16.png", UriKind.Relative)), textBox);

I know that, but wasn't what I needed.

Here is the code:

using ActiproSoftware.Windows.Controls.Docking;

namespace Sample
{
    public partial class CustomDocumentWindow : DocumentWindow
    {
        public CustomDocumentWindow(DockSite dockSite) : base(dockSite)
        {
            InitializeComponent();
        } 
    }
}
So, I can use this on menu:

private void menu_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
{
    DocumentWindow wnd = null;

    switch ((e.Source as MenuItem).CommandParameter.ToString())
    {
        case "Sample/CustomDocumentWindow":
            wnd = new Sample.CustomDocumentWindow(dockSite);
            break;
    }

    wnd.Width = double.NaN;
    wnd.Height = double.NaN;
    wnd.Activate(true);
}
Thanks,

Henrique

What I was saying is call the same constructor I illustrated that has 5 parameters but the one you included in this snippet should work too. Are you saying that contructor call fixed it or you still have the issue?

If you still have the issue, please email a simple sample project over to our support address so we can look at it. Thanks.
