When creating a bar container, you specify the container's type via the BarContainerControl.ContainerType property.
When initializing a bar, you can dock it to a specific bar container via the Bar.DockInfo.ContainerType (BarDockInfo.ContainerType) property. The value assigned to this property must match the BarContainerControl.ContainerType property's value of the required bar container.
