Name Type Description
panel DockPanel

A DockPanel object that is the target dock panel.

dock DockingStyle

A DockingStyle enumerator value specifying how the current panel is docked to the target panel.

index Int32

A zero-based integer specifying the position at which to dock the current panel.


If the current panel is docked to a split container or tab container, it's added as a new child to this container.

If the target panel does not contain children, a split container is created in place of the target panel. The split container will display both the target and current panel.

The dock parameter specifies how the panel is docked - to the target panel's left, right, bottom or top edge.

The index parameter specifies the position in which the current panel is docked. Set the index parameter to 0 to add the panel as the first one amongst the target container's children. Set index to 1 to add the panel as the second one, etc. Setting the index parameter to -1appends the panel to the container. To get the position of a panel amongst its sibling panels, use the DockPanel.Index property.
