Completely right, I've never felt the need to use a layout manager, once you know how to use the traditional controls well. The important thing to take from this is, whether it is Krypton or DevExpress, they all offer a suite of controls not just the one which you are doing at the moment.figuerres said:well to be honest I find that the windows panels, grid and docking work fine for 90% or more of all layouts.vkhaitan said:*snip*
in very few cases do I find them to now work as needed.
and given that you are offering one control.... it just does not seem worth it.
In my experience most developers who have layout problems just do not know how to use the layout tools they have already.
yes there are some cases where more can be done, but in the few cases I can handle the issues with a bit of tewaking and some custom code.
There is a similar start-up guy here, and he offers far much more than you do. I have the utmost respect for control developers because it is difficult, and unless you can offer a lot more than what is on code project, then you will find it difficult.
You need a suite of controls or better put, you need a toolbox with loads of different tools to help me create something. As it is you have just a screwdriver, and I need far much more than that.
