Property Value

Type Default Description


true, if borders of this panel can snap to other panels' borders; otherwise, false.


When a user drags a border of a SidePanel, the panel snapping automatically sticks this border to a border of another panel when these borders are close to each other. This allows end-users to effortlessly align panels in a line. The animation below illustrates an example.

The SidePanel.SnapThreshold property specifies how close an end-user must move a panel border to another border before the snapping feature will automatically adjust its position.
