I want to show a hidden DockableControlPane (it's a floating pane). For this, I use Show(), but when the DockableControlPane appears, it takes the focus (which I don't want). Is there a way to show the pane without loosing the current focus ?
The dock manager does not allow for this. You can submit a feature request for this ability: http://devcenter.infragistics.com/Protected/RequestFeature.aspx.
Finally, I use a variable to remember wich control has the current focus and I restore the focus after the DockableControlPane takes it.
