Public Overridable Property ShowDockPanels As Boolean

Property Value

Type Default Description


true to display the list of the existing dock panels; otherwise, false.


Dock panels can be added to the form using the DockManager component. For a BarToolbarsListItem object to display the names of the existing dock panels you need to set the ShowDockPanels property to true and ensure that the BarManager.DockManager property is set to the DockManager component (the owner of the dock panels). If you create a BarManager or DockManager component in code, you must initialize the BarManager.DockManager property manually. When creating the BarManager and DockManager components at design time, this property is initialized automatically.


Auto-hidden dock panels are not displayed by the BarToolbarsListItem.
