Remarks

Use the DockLayoutManager.DockController object to access a DockController object, which provides methods to perform docking operations on panels. These methods allow you to dock a panel, restore it from the closed state, make it floating, etc.

Examples

This example shows how to dock a panel in code using the methods provided by the DockLayoutManager.DockController object. In the Button1_Click event handler, a panel is docked to another panel forming a split container (two panels are displayed side by side). In the Button2_Click event handler, a panel is docked to another panel forming a tabbed group.

Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As RoutedEventArgs)
    ' Dock the Properties panel at the bottom of the Output panel.
    dockManager1.DockController.Dock(paneProperties, paneOutput, DockType.Bottom)
End Sub

Private Sub Button2_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As RoutedEventArgs)
    ' Dock the Properties panel to the Output panel, creating a tab container.
    dockManager1.DockController.Dock(paneProperties, paneOutput, DockType.Fill)
End Sub
