Assembly: DevExpress.XtraBars.v19.2.dll


public virtual BarAndDockingController BarAndDockingController { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Default Description


A BarAndDockingController object providing appearance options.


Use the BarAndDockingController property to explicitly assign a BarAndDockingController to a DocumentManager. The BarAndDockingController provides settings that allow you to control the default appearance of the DocumentManager's elements. These settings are accessible via the BarAndDockingController.AppearancesDocumentManager object.

If the BarAndDockingController property is set to null, the DocumentManager uses the Default BarAndDockingController's settings. Otherwise, the appearance settings are obtained from the assigned BarAndDockingController. The Default BarAndDockingController can be obtained via the static BarAndDockingController.Default property or via the DefaultBarAndDockingController component.

See the Bar and Docking Controllers (Customizing Default View and Behavior Settings) document for more information.
