Docking manager has a property "Float Only". Is there a corresponding "Slide Only" property e.g. if I want my docked window to have the sliding behaviour and not allow the user to detach and float the docked window from the main WinForm how would I do this? Also is there a way of disabling the "close window" - "cross" at the top-right-hand corner of the sliding window?
There is no corresponding "Float Only" property but you could use the SetAutoHideButtonVisibility() method as shown below to hide the push pin :
You could use the following code to hide the close "cross" :
this.dockingManager1.CloseEnabled = false;
You will have to use the above code within the NewDockStateEndLoad event handler to get the desired effect. I have attached a sample that shows how this can be accomplished.
I have also updated your incident on Direct Trac. Please let me know if this helps. Thank you.
