[Version 2.0] Overhead

Apr 11, 2012 at 1:37 AM

I've been using version 1.3 for quite a while. The control is a bit heavy when loaded. 

Will version 2.0 be lighter-weight when used simply?

I'm looking at applying smaller dock regions in my more complex dialogs mainly for the ability to re-size / hide / collapse sidebars & whatnot.

Potentially could have a number of windows open with thier own unique dock regions (that are not intended to mix/match thier content).

AvalonDock 2.0 in theory should be faster than previous version thanks to the new layout manager that uses HwndHost derived class to implement the autohide windows. Said that I didn't make a performance test to prove it. I suggest you to make some test application with AD 2.0 and see by your self if it can work in your environment.
