Docking Position for dialog window

  • Anyone have the same issue I am having?

    The code I am using is below and the window remains docked to the right side of the window no matter how I change the value… NppTbMsg.DWS_DF_CONT_LEFT or NppTbMsg.DWS_DF_CONT_TOP
    for example and the window still stays docked to the right-hand side. Is there a better way of doing this? I simply want a window that cannot be moved which will showup in the middle of the notepad++ screen,

    nppTbData.uMask = NppTbMsg.DWS_DF_CONT_LEFT | NppTbMsg.DWS_ICONTAB | NppTbMsg.DWS_ICONBAR;

    Win32.SendMessage(PluginBase.nppData._nppHandle, (uint) NppMsg.NPPM_DMMREGASDCKDLG, 0, _ptrNppTbData);

    no, the reason might be that npp remembers it last location.
    Open the config.xml with an editor other than npp and delete the entry
    of your plugin under GUIConfig name=“DockingManager” section.
    Start npp and open your plugin window and it should dock on the left side.


  • Thanks Claudia…let me try that…I do appreciate it.
