NuGet Package: DevExpress.Web


public string ClientInstanceName { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Default Description
String String.Empty

A string value that specifies the ASPxDockManager‘s client identifier.


Use the ClientInstanceName property to specify a unique client-side identifier for the ASPxDockManager control. The ClientInstanceName property’s value can be used on the client side to programmatically access the client object rendered for the ASPxDockManager control in client-side script. This property is particularly important in referencing the ASPxDockManager control when it is contained within a naming container (for example, within an ASPxPageControl‘s page or an ASPxPopupControl‘s window).

If the ClientInstanceName property is not specified for a control, the control’s client identifier is generated automatically, and equals the value of the control’s ID property. Note that in this case, client-side programmatic access to the control is not allowed when the control is contained within a naming container.


The code sample below demonstrates how you can get a list of docked panels contained within a page.

function IsDockedPredicate (panel) {
     return panel.IsDocked();

function GetDockedPanelsList () {
     var DockedPanels = manager.GetPanels(IsDockedPredicate);
     var PanelList = '';
     for ( i=0; i < DockedPanels.length; i++){
          PanelList = PanelList + ' ' + DockedPanels[i].panelUID;
     label.SetText('Docked panels:' + PanelList);
