Gets or sets whether an end-user has to press a keyboard Shift key in order to display Dock Guides when dragging a Document within the current TabbedView.

Namespace: DevExpress.XtraBars.Docking2010.Views.Tabbed

Assembly: DevExpress.XtraBars.v19.2.dll

Declaration

[DefaultValue(DefaultBoolean.Default)]
public DefaultBoolean ShowDockGuidesOnPressingShift { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Default Description
DefaultBoolean

Default

true if an end-user has to press a keyboard Shift key in order to display Dock Guides when dragging a Document within the current TabbedView; otherwise, false.

Available values:

Name Description
True

Corresponds to a Boolean value of true.

False

Corresponds to a Boolean value of false.

Default

The value is determined by the current object's parent object setting (e.g., a control setting).

Remarks

By default, dragging a Document within a TabbedView at runtime displays Dock Guides (see the image below), which remain visible until the Document is docked or released. If the ShowDockGuidesOnPressingShift property equals true, these hints will not be shown unless an end-user presses the keyboard Shift key.

DocumentManager DockGuides

The ShowDockGuidesOnPressingShift property affects united DocumentManager and DockManager docking hints as well, if both of these components are used within an application. See the Interaction with Dock Panels topic to learn more.
