Sorry for the bump

Is it required additional details from me? Did you able to reproduce it? Just that issue is very annoying

Thank you

Can you check anything past 5933, there was a large change to the engine structure which may affect this issue.

Rev 5939 still has that issue
Here is my test case (run example and expand west region)

width: 200,
collapsible: true,
collapsed: true,
margins:'3 0 3 3',
cmargins:'3 3 3 3'

var win = new Ext.Window({
title: 'Layout Window',
layout: 'border',

items: [nav, center]

Up to svn 5952 still not found a work around.

It's not marked as fixed yet so I wouldn't expect it. This is a high priority item, we will update this thread as soon as it is resolved and in svn.

Have found a partial workaround at present :-

1) Initialize page with side panel with collapse: false
2) After panel renders collapse the side panels.

Did this is a modification of the restoreState() method used to recover the state of the panel. In this which there was no cookie state it closes the side panel. Then may sure panel.restoreState() called just after page is renders.

So for all side panels add a restoreState()

restoreState: function(){
try {
var state = Ext.state.Manager.get(this.stateId);
if (state) {
} else {
catch (e) {
console.log('restoreState function failed');

This alter initial layout of viewport reset the set panels:-

svn 5954 should resolve this issue. Please let me know if you still have issues.

Thanks that fixed it.

Thanks for the fix. But there is another problem which you can reproduce with my previous test case

1. Run example
2. Resize window (you have to increase window's height)
3. Click on west collapsed region (do not click on the expand icon, just click on collapsed band to make west region floatable)
4. You should see that height of west panel is less that window's body height

Thanks again

Looks like this issue has been around for a while, fixed in svn 5956.
