Name Description

The same as the FloatPageDragMode.Preview option.


When dragging, the window’s preview version is dragged.


The window is dragged in its original size.


If the XtraTabbedMdiManager.FloatOnDrag option is set to True, an end-user can drag individual pages away from the XtraTabbedMdiManager‘s header region, making the pages floating.

The FloatPageDragMode property specifies how pages are displayed while they are dragged outside the header region. You can choose whether a page should be displayed in its original size, or using a small preview version. The size of the page’s preview version is calculated based on the XtraTabbedMdiManager.PreviewPageZoomRatio setting.
