The DockAsMdiDocument method is equivalent to the IBaseViewController.Dock method. The method is not supported when docking a DockPanel to NativeMdiView objects.

When a panel is docked to a DocumentManager, it becomes a document belonging to this DocumentManager. To work with panels transformed into documents, use the methods provided by the TabbedView.Controller object. The document that corresponds to a dock panel can be accessed with the DocumentManager.GetDocument method.
