Restores the layout of dock panels from the specified system registry path.
public virtual void RestoreLayoutFromRegistry( string path )
Public Overridable Sub RestoreLayoutFromRegistry( path As String )
A string value which specifies the system registry path. If the specified path doesn't exist, this method does nothing.
When restoring a layout during a form load (for instance, in your Form.Load event handler), you may need to call the DockManager.ForceInitialize method prior to the layout restoration. See this method to learn more.

The following code can be used to write and read a docking layout to and from the system registry. The full path to the docking layout will be: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\DevExpress\XtraBars\DockStates\MainState.
string regKey = "DevExpress\\XtraBars\\DockStates\\MainState"; dockManager1.SaveLayoutToRegistry(regKey); // ... dockManager1.RestoreLayoutFromRegistry(regKey);
