public BarAndDockingController Controller { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Default Description
BarAndDockingController null

A BarAndDockingController object providing appearance options.


Use the Controller property to explicitly assign a BarAndDocking controller to a dock manager. The BarAndDocking controller provides various appearance and look and feel settings for the dock panels owned by the dock manager.

If this property is set to a null value, the Bar Manager uses the default BarAndDocking controller’s settings. Otherwise, the appearance settings are obtained from the assigned BarAndDocking controller. The default BarAndDocking controller can be obtained via the static BarAndDockingController.Default property or via the DefaultBarAndDockingController component.

See the Look and Feel help topic for more information.
