Namespace: DevExpress.XtraTabbedMdi

Assembly: DevExpress.XtraBars.v20.1.dll


public DefaultBoolean ShowFloatingDropHint { get; set; }
Public Property ShowFloatingDropHint As DefaultBoolean

Property Value

Type Default Description


true if the hints are enabled; otherwise, false.


To allow pages to be made floating, use the XtraTabbedMdiManager.FloatOnDrag property. The ShowFloatingDropHint property enables hints that help an end-user decide where to dock a floating page, when performing a drag-and-drop over the XtraTabbedMdiManager's header area.

The DefaultBoolean.Default value assigned to the ShowFloatingDropHint property is interpreted as DefaultBoolean.True.

If the ShowFloatingDropHint property is set to False, a dragged floating page that is hovered over the XtraTabbedMdiManager's header area for a specified duration, is automatically docked to the XtraTabbedMdiManager. This delay is specified by the XtraTabbedMdiManager.FloatMDIChildDockDelay property.
