public bool? AllowDockItemRename { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Description

true if dock items can be renamed; otherwise, false.


To enable/forbid dock item renaming, use the AllowDockItemRename option.

If this property is set to null, item renaming is enabled in Customization Mode. An end-user can rename an item via the context menu. In code, you can initiate item renaming via the DockController.Rename method.

If the AllowDockItemRename property is true, you can call the Rename(BaseLayoutItem) method to rename the item even when Customization Mode is disabled.

Setting the AllowDockItemRename property to false prevents the item from being renamed.

To prevent a specific item from being renamed, set the item’s BaseLayoutItem.AllowRename option to false. If the BaseLayoutItem.AllowRename property is set to true and the AllowDockItemRename option is set to false, the item cannot be renamed.
