DockPanels removes expandbutton from layoutgroups



We would like to use expand buttons layout groups, but I encountered a problem while using DockPanels.
When i turn on expandbuttons in detail view layout groups by a controller, then it takes no effect in case when DockPanels module is added.
I attached a video showing the details, and I also attached the previously mentioned controller class.

How could we solve this issue?

Best regards,

Hello Tibor,

Sorry for the delay with the answer.

We suggest you use our configuration of Model for LayoutGroup.
This configuration you can see in video: attached file

We hope you find this information helpful.
Feel free to contact us if you experience any further difficulties.

Hi Sasha,

Thank you for your video again.

We have a large code base, which worked well so far, but after installing DockPanels, unfortunately, it is now broken. It would be very hard to edit hundreds of layouts to fix it everywhere.
I think, dockpanels should not be related to controllers of detailviews, and should not break any other unrelated funcionality.

We would highly appreciate, if you could fix this issue in dockpanels.

Thank you in advance

Hi Tibor,
To solve your issue you can disable our controller ExpandableLayoutGroupViewController:

var controller = Frame.GetController();

controller.Active["Deactivation in code"] = false;

Thanks for your patience.
I hope you find this information helpful.

Best regards, Sasha.
