Gets or sets whether auto-hide and floating panels should be displayed over a WindowsFormsHost element. This is a dependency property.

Namespace: DevExpress.Xpf.Docking

Assembly: DevExpress.Xpf.Docking.v20.1.dll

Declaration

public bool EnableWin32Compatibility { get; set; }
Public Property EnableWin32Compatibility As Boolean

Property Value

Type Description
Boolean

true, if auto-hide panels should be displayed over a WindowsFormsHost element; otherwise, false.

Remarks

You can host WinForms controls in WPF applications using a WindowsFormsHost object with a few limitations (see the WPF and WinForms Interoperation Limitations topic to learn more). WinForms controls are always drawn at the top and overlap WPF elements. Setting the EnableWin32Compatibility property to true forces WPF auto-hide panels to be drawn over a WindowsFormsHost element. Additionally, this sets the AllowsTransparency property to false for all floating WPF windows.

The same applies to floating panels: if the DockLayoutManager.FloatingMode property equals Desktop, setting the EnableWin32Compatibility property to true forces floating panels to be displayed above WinForms controls.
