DockingOptions.FloatPanelsAlwaysOnTop Property

Gets or sets whether floating DockManager panels are always drawn on top of their parent forms.

Namespace: DevExpress.XtraBars.Docking

Assembly: DevExpress.XtraBars.v20.2.dll

Declaration

[DefaultValue(DefaultBoolean.Default)]
[XtraSerializableProperty]
public DefaultBoolean FloatPanelsAlwaysOnTop { get; set; }
<DefaultValue(DefaultBoolean.Default)>
<XtraSerializableProperty>
Public Property FloatPanelsAlwaysOnTop As DefaultBoolean

Property Value

Type Default Description
DefaultBoolean

Default

Specifies whether floating panels are always drawn on top of their parent forms.

Property Paths

You can access this nested property as listed below:

Library Object Type Path to FloatPanelsAlwaysOnTop
WinForms Controls SnapDockManager
.DockingOptions.FloatPanelsAlwaysOnTop
DockManager
.DockingOptions.FloatPanelsAlwaysOnTop
Reporting XRDesignDockManager
.DockingOptions.FloatPanelsAlwaysOnTop

Remarks

The figure below demonstrates the FloatPanelsAlwaysOnTop property's effect on dock panels.

DockManager panels with and without the AlwaysOnTop setting

The BarAndDockingController component has a corresponding DockingOptions.FloatWindowsAlwaysOnTop property. This property specifies the floating panel behavior for all DockManagers whose FloatPanelsAlwaysOnTop equals DefaultBoolean.Default. If no BarAndDockingController is present or its own property value is also "Default", float panels are always drawn on top of their parent forms.

If floating panels are always drawn on top, they never show Minimize buttons (the DockManager.DockingOptions.ShowMinimizeButton property has no effect).
