public bool CloseAllButThis(
    BaseLayoutItem item


Name Type Description
item BaseLayoutItem

The only BaseLayoutItem element to remain opened within its parent container.


Type Description

true, if all but the specified items were successfully closed; otherwise, false.


The method closes all child items within the item’s container except the specified item object. Depending on the BaseLayoutItem.ClosingBehavior of the items closed (and the DockLayoutManager.ClosingBehavior of the parent dock layout manager), they are either moved to the closed panel collection, or removed.

To close a specific item, use the DockControllerBase.Close method instead. Neither the CloseAllButThis or Close methods close the items whose BaseLayoutItem.AllowClose property is set to false.
