Downloaded zip file is corrupt

Hi Guys,

On your the download page of your website I tried to download the the demo & help pdf of the Dockingpack.
I downloaded it succesfully several times but when I try to unpack it (using winrar or windows explorer) the following error occurs:
*\Downloads\ unknown method in pDockingDemo.exe
*\Downloads\ unknown method in LMDDockingPack.pdf
*\Downloads\ No files to extract.

Maybe the file is corrupt. 
I hope you can update this!

  • I re-uploaded new archive. Please check it. Thank you for report
  • I have checked it again. Still the same problem for me but it's working fine now @my colleagues PC.
    So he unzipped it for me ;)

    I have a different question for you. 
    I'm exploring the possibilities of using the docking components.
    All is working well so far except for one issue.
    I would like rearrange the different subforms but don't allow the windows to float.
    Is this possible with the current component version?

    Yes. This is possible. You can use OnUnDock event of the TLMDDockSite like this:

    procedure TForm1.SiteUnDock(Sender: TObject; Client: TControl; 
      NewTarget: TWinControl; var Allow: Boolean); 
      Allow := (NewTarget = Site); 

    However, this will not work, if DockManager.Style.DragContent is True (default in VS2010 style), because in this case the panel undocked immediately at the drag start.

    Hello all,

    I implemented your solution.
    Unfortunately it didn't work.
    I uploaded a sample project: Download here

    The Variable NewTarget always returns the TLMDDockManager component even when turns into a floating form.

    I hope you guys can have a look at the sample project.


    @Admin. The upload/attach functionality doesn't work. I get a error after uploading a file:
    file upload failed. Reason ( missing a temporary folder  

    I'm using Dockingcomponent pack version:
    Component: TLMDDockPanel
    Package:   LMD DockingPack 2011.1 (22-12-2010)
    IDE:       (Delphi/C++Builder 2010) - Trialversion
    Platform:  Platform: Windows 7 (Build: 7601, Service Pack 1)

  • Hm. Strange. I've created and tested the code. It works!
    Do you set DockManager.Style.DragContent to False as was mentioned?
  • @Balabuev
    - Which version of the dockingcomponent are you using?
    - Were you able to test the software with the sample project I attached?
    - I did set the dragcontent to false. (used the vs2005 style and checked the dragcontent).

    Could you send me a working sample project?

  • Which version of the dockingcomponent are you using

    I use latest version from SVN.

    Were you able to test the software with the sample project I attached?

    No. The file has been removed from file-server.
  • Today I have time again to look into this matter.
    I updated my version to the most recent version of the docking component.

    @Balabuev, indeed your answer solves my issues, but only partly.
    Let me explain:
    When I drag and drop a docking frame OUTSIDE the border of tlmddocksite it works fine. But now when I drop the docking frame within the border of the tlmddocksite BUT NOT in a hotspot the frame still becomes a floating frame.

    So I think I need to rephrase my question: How can I allow my frames to only be dropped on a hotspot?
