We have recently purchased the LMD DockingPack 2016 with a view to incorporating the docking controls into an existing application.
Because I do not have the option of building the dockable framework from scratch I have to retrofit the docking component framework into the existing application form structure.
I am working my way through it and making progress and like the look and feel of the controls but had a few questions:
1. When dynamically creating panels (ClientKind=dkTool), saving them to xml is fine but they will not load via TLMDDockManager.LoadFromFile. I read a support item that discussed using the OnGetComp event but I would like an example of how to use this event properly.
2. Further to this I thought I could use the OnReadAppInfo and the OnGetComp to get my forms associated with the Panels as they are loaded but it appears the event order is the wrong way around for that. So I am also looking for a useful way to use OnReadAppInfo for my custom xml content to align with the panels layout when the xml is loaded. Again a workable example here would be extremely useful.
I hope this all makes sense and if you need more information please let me know.
