Float Window not visible after Layout reload

Docking/MDI for WPF Forum

Posted 13 years ago by PhilipK - Developer, QuIC Financial Technologies Inc
The App is using v10.2.0532.

If the user makes one of the tool window floating, then close the app (this will save the layout using DockSiteLayoutSerializer). After reopen the app (this will load the layout using DockSiteLayoutSerializer), the tool window is not the top window anymore, the user will have to Ctrl-Tab to bring this tool window back to the front.

Is there a way to have this floating tool window in the front after loading? Thanks.

Hi Philip,

Assuming that the floating windows are owned by your main window (the default behavior), then it should not be possible for the floating window to fall behind the main window. This is a restriction imposed by the operating system.

If you have customized the floating windows to remove the ownership, then it would be possible to fall behind the main window. Unfortunately, the z-order of the windows is not currently saved/restored. That would have to be done manually.
