DevExpress.XtraBars.Docking.Helpers.DockMode Default

A DevExpress.XtraBars.Docking.Helpers.DockMode enumeration value that specifies the dock style.


The Docking library allows use of one of two available dock styles. These are: Standard and VS2005. A dock style specifies the manner in which the dock mechanism works.
