Remarks

When a panel is floated, a floating form is created and the panel is placed onto this form. The floating form where the floating panel resides can be accessed via the DockPanel.FloatForm property. This property returns null if the panel is not currently floating.

The DockPanel.FloatForm property can be used to specify the size and position of the floating form and thus specify these properties for the floating panel. To specify the panel's size in floating mode the DockPanel.FloatSize property can also be used.

NOTE

When implementing tooltips using the standard System.Windows.Forms.ToolTip class, take note that the tooltips will not be displayed for controls that reside within floating dock panels. To provide tooltips for controls, use the DefaultToolTipController or ToolTipController component instead. See Tooltips to learn more.
