A BaseDocument object to be docked to a View.


Type Description

true if the operation was a success; otherwise, false.


The Dock method docks a document, while the IBaseViewController.Float method makes it floating.

By default, documents within a NativeMdiView can be dragged only within the View’s bounds. These documents are considered “docked”. When you make a document floating within a NativeMdiView, it can be dragged outside the View. To “dock” a document back to a NativeMdiView, so it can be dragged only within the View’s bounds, call the IBaseViewController.Dock method.
