You can handle the BaseView.RestoreLayoutError event to fix exceptions that occur during the restore layout operation.


The Layout Control saves and restores the View’s properties and properties of documents. It does not recreate documents with their content. You should recreate documents and then restore the layout.

The ControlName property should be set to a unique value for documents populated with the content on the fly (see Deferred Load) to restore documents correctly.


You can also utilize the Persistence Behavior or Workspace Manager component to save and restore layouts for all supported DevExpress controls.
