Property Value

Type Default Description
BarAndDockingController null

A BarAndDockingController object providing appearance options.


Use the Controller property to explicitly assign a BarAndDockingController to the current BarManager. The BarAndDockingController provides various appearance and style settings for the bars owned by the BarManager.

If this property specifies a null value, the Bar Manager uses the DefaultBarAndDockingController‘s settings. Otherwise, the appearance settings are fetched from the assigned BarAndDockingController. The actual controller currently used can be obtained by calling the BarManager.GetController method.
