How to set initial size of DocumentWindow programmatically?

Docking/MDI for WPF Forum

I have DocumentWindows created by my program that get placed into a docksite after creation, which do with this constructor:

public DocumentWindow(ActiproSoftware.Windows.Controls.Docking.DockSite dockSite, 
string name, string title, System.Windows.Media.ImageSource imageSource, object content)

I want to save/restore the user's selected size for the DocumentWindows when they open new documents. How do I do this? I've tried by: resizing the content UserControl; using dockSite.DefaultControlSize; using StandardMdiHeight... none of this works.

Thanks in advance,

Hi Janene,

You would need to set the DockSite.ControlSize attached property (i.e. DockSite.SetControlSize(window, new Size(x,y))) on your window. Keep in mind that this only sets the desired default size. If you load a DocumentWindow into a tabbed MDI host, then it will size to fit the host.
