Property Value

Type Description

A ClosedPanelsBarVisibility value that specifies the visibility state for the Closed Panels bar.


The Closed Panels bar provides access to closed panels. For each closed panel, it displays a button with the panel's caption. Clicking this button restores the panel to its previous position:


By default, an end-user can display the Closed Panels bar by selecting the Closed Panels item from a context menu (invoked by right-clicking a panel's caption or header area). To learn more about the context menus, see the DockLayoutManager.ContextMenuCustomizations and DockLayoutManager.ItemSelectorMenuCustomizations topics.

The ClosedPanelsBarVisibility property specifies whether and how the Closed Panels bar is accessible to end-users. To disable the Closed Panels bar, set the ClosedPanelsBarVisibility property to Never.

The Closed Panels bar can be docked to any DockLayoutManager's side. Use the DockLayoutManager.ClosedPanelsBarPosition property to specify its location.
