Common Docking Events
- 2 min to read
All extensions included in the DevExpress MVC Docking suite (i.e. DockPanelExtension, DockZoneExtension and DockManagerExtension) provide advanced client-side event support that gives you the ability to completely control the behavior of dock panels and zones.
The most typical end-user actions (such as dragging and docking) invoke common events of all the key elements of the panel docking functionality.
- StartDragging and EndDragging events, specific to DockPanel (StartPanelDragging and EndPanelDragging specific to DockManager), allow you to respond to the corresponding end-user actions performed on a panel.
- BeforeDock and AfterDock events are common for DockPanel, DockZone and DockManager. They fire before and after a panel is docked to a zone, allowing you to cancel panel docking if required.
- BeforeFloat and AfterFloat events are common for DockPanel and DockManager. They fire before and after a panel is undocked from a zone, allowing you to cancel the action if required.
The table below lists available client-side common docking events.
