Namespace: DevExpress.XtraBars.Docking2010.Views

Assembly: DevExpress.XtraBars.v20.1.dll

Declaration

public BaseDocument AddFloatDocument(
    Control control

Public Function AddFloatDocument(
    control As Control
) As BaseDocument

Parameters

Name Type Description
control Control

A Control descendant to be displayed within the newly created document.

Returns

Type Description
BaseDocument

A newly created BaseDocument object.

Remarks

The control parameter specifies the contents for the newly created document. You can use any Control or Form descendant as the document's contents. To subsequently access a document's contents, use the BaseDocument.Control property.

When a document is added to a View, the BaseView.DocumentAdded event fires.

If a TabbedView is currently used, call the BaseView.AddDocument method to add a tabbed document instead of a floating document.

Floating documents within a TabbedView can be hosted either in individual containers, or in containers where other floating documents can be docked. See the BaseView.FloatingDocumentContainer property to learn more.
