Strange error when docking back a toolwindow

Hi

On one laptop we experience a very strange behavior... it happens when we try to dock back a specific toolwindow by dropping it over any of the docking "icons". If we do it using the "Dock" option in the menu it works fine, no problems.

The error thrown is:

Exception from HRESULT: 0x88980406

System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException (0x88980406): Exception from HRESULT: 0x88980406 at System.Windows.Media.Composition.DUCE.Channel.SyncFlush() at System.Windows.Interop.HwndTarget.UpdateWindowSettings(Boolean enableRenderTarget, Nullable`1 channelSet) at System.Windows.Interop.HwndTarget.UpdateWindowPos(IntPtr lParam) at System.Windows.Interop.HwndTarget.HandleMessage(WindowMessage msg, IntPtr wparam, IntPtr lparam) at System.Windows.Interop.HwndSource.HwndTargetFilterMessage(IntPtr hwnd, Int32 msg, IntPtr wParam, IntPtr lParam, Boolean& handled) at MS.Win32.HwndWrapper.WndProc(IntPtr hwnd, Int32 msg, IntPtr wParam, IntPtr lParam, Boolean& handled) at MS.Win32.HwndSubclass.DispatcherCallbackOperation(Object o) at System.Windows.Threading.ExceptionWrapper.InternalRealCall(Delegate callback, Object args, Int32 numArgs) at MS.Internal.Threading.ExceptionFilterHelper.TryCatchWhen(Object source, Delegate method, Object args, Int32 numArgs, Delegate catchHandler)

It is a Win7 Terra laptop with .NET 4 installed (Actipro 10.1.522)

Do you have any idea why is this happening?

Hi Radu,

I don't believe we've heard of that happening before and we don't use COM. Further, none of our code is listed in your stack trace. Perhaps there is an issue with some COM control you are using as child content, that doesn't like to be reparented in some scenario?

If you think it is a problem with our code (but again this seems external to anything we can control), then please put together a simple sample project that shows the issue and email it over. Please don't include any .exe files in the ZIP you send. Thanks.

Thank you for your reply. I'll try to investigate more and also ask the authors of the component that is hosted inside that ToolWindow.

I am back with more information. We could easily reproduce the problem on one of our development machines.

Please check the above stack trace maybe you find something. It is quite critical for us as it bombs not only on some specific ToolWindow, we can reproduce it with at least 2 different ones (with various content each)

Thanks in advance!

Hi Radu,

From your stack trace, all we are doing is closing the "rafting" window, which is a WPF Window that hosts floating docking windows, and that standard Close call is making some exception occur deep in Microsoft code.

We've not seen that exception before and again, are not sure it's something that we are doing. It seems more like something in the content of the docking windows would cause it. But we can't tell you for sure unless you provide a simple sample project that can repro it, as mentioned in our last reply.

It seems that installing the latest Actipro version (523) fixed this critical bug!!!


PS: Now we got some other small problem in some different scenario (but that one is rare and difficult to reproduce; I will make a different topic when I have a reproductible pattern).

The latest build of this product (v2019.1 build 0681) was released 1 month ago, which was after the last post in this thread.
