lately i found there is a very annoying bug in windowworkspace. the windowsize cannot contain the view in full by default. to test it, i only did 3 lines code.

WindowWorkspace ww = new WindowWorkspace();
WindowSmartPartInfo spi = new WindowSmartPartInfo();
ww.Show(new TitledSmartPart(), spi);

i used smartpartquickstart as testing platform. some small part of right and bottom of the view are cut off. will there be any fix for this?

I changed the code in WindowWorkspace.cs, line 153. function CalculateSize.

private void CalculateSize(Control smartPart, Form form)
form.Size = new Size(
smartPart.Size.Width + SystemInformation.FrameBorderSize.Width * 2,
smartPart.Size.Height + SystemInformation.FrameBorderSize.Height * 2 +

I hope this is the right fix for all the situations. At least, it works well for default windowssmartpartinfo set up.

the original code is written by design? it's not fixed in the just released VB code either.

The VB code that was released is a straight port, and includes the bugs that have been recently reported. We are still deciding what our strategy is for these bugs. It's of utmost importance to us that the final release of C# and VB be 100% compatible with one another.

Does WindowWorkspace open up the view in a separate Window? (new Dialog?)
