DockableContent not showing on Target PC

Dec 4, 2009 at 2:19 PM

Hello, I am experiencing a strange behaviour when I develop+install my application on other (all XP) PCs.

On my PC everything looks good.

On target PCs, DockableContents don't show up, nor they are resizable or moveable. I installed Visual Studio also on these PCs and run my source project from there, no difference.

Instead of DockableContents I just see a shrinked item. To better explain the problem, I published a couple of snapshots on

This is a snippet of my code

            <ad:ResizingPanel  Orientation="Vertical" Margin="0,0,0,20">
                <ad:ResizingPanel Orientation="Horizontal">

                    <d:DockablePane x:Name="LibraryPane" ad:ResizingPanel.ResizeWidth="136" ShowHeader="True" ShowTabs="True">
                        <ad:DockableContent Title="Library">

                            <!-- EXPANDERS LIBRERIE -->
                            <Border ... 

                    <!-- CONTIENE I VARI FOGLI -->
                     <ad:DocumentPane x:Name="documentPane" Margin="0,0,0,0">


Any ideas ? Thanks in advance.

An update: If I delete my control inside DockableContent and I put, for example, a simple RichTextBox when I try to resize it I get an error message: The specified Visual and this Visual do not share a common ancestor, so there is no valid transformation between the two Visuals ...

Did anybody have a similar error ?
