I save and restore layout like:

  1. saving the layout In the UnloadingWorkbench(){} function of LayoutManager.cs :

     string s = SaveLayout();

    And then save the string "s" to the file "save.txt"

  2. restoring the layout In the Run(params object[] args){} of StartupCommands.cs :

    Read the file "save.txt" into string "blob", then


I can restore Pads and Documents that I opened before, but all of them dock to the "Right", I can't restore them on the before position. How do I modify my program, or where is the best position to put RestoreLayout() and SaveLayout() function?

Try calling RestoreLayout in an event handler for the layoutManager.Loaded event. The layout manager can't really do anything visual before that point.
