I have a Form upon which I have placed a CAB Window Workspace. According to the metadata file for WindowWorkspace, I can show the worspace by calling Show(smartPart). When I attempt to do this after creating the SmartPart, I get an exception. I could use some help here! Please!

Are you referencing the correct name of the WindowWorkspace? What is the error?

WindowWorkspace Show metod need WindowSmartPartInfo in order to work so it need to know which WorkItem it is contained in, because the parent workitem has a collection for all WindowSmartPartInfos and coresponding views.
It exposes WorkItem property with a setter which uses a dependecy injection to connect this workspace and parent work item but doesn't work for workspaces derived from Component.
It works with other workspaces, like TabWorkspace or ZoneWorkspace, derived from control.

It looks like a bug and a question for CAB team.
