I am afraid that the save/load layout is unacceptable for my application. Once a panel is closed it and all of its content are apparently destroyed. I need the content intact and simply hidden. There is not a cancelable onClosing event that would allow me to save state.
In my opinion this is the best docking layout tool I have seen to date but it is maddeningly unusable.
We are sorry to hear that. We have noted your feature request and will try to improve the widget’s functionality in future versions of jQWidgets. Meanwhile, you may also try using the method addFloatGroup to dynamically add new floatGroups with the content of destroyed panels.
