Manipulate Shell In Code

Is there a way to manipulate the shell in code using the Shell Extension?

For instance, the "Tasks" pane shows on the left and the "Screens" area on the right. Is there a way to add a second "Screens" area to host a persistent screen? I guess what I'm asking for is guidance in replicating the functionality of a splitter control in WinForms. Ideally, I'd like to have an area at the bottom of the screen, let's say 25% of the screen with a Tabbed Layout. The rest of the screen would be split vertically, 25/75 with the "Tasks" pane and "Screen" area. The bottom would be persistent. Or am I being overly ambitious?

Hi Al Calderon,

Thank you for using Syncfusion products.

We have analyzed your query and found that we cannot extract the instance of "Tasks" pane from DockingManager. So there is no way to manipulate the shell in code using the Shell Extension.
