On docking Manager, is it possible to

1. set a status message next to Label on a DockPanel (and/or change the font size of label)

2. set a tooltip on the label (or a status label if possible to have one) ?

Thank you for your help.

Hi Sean,

Thank you for using Syncfusion products.

Set status message next to DockLabel

You can display the DockState of the control when its DockState is changed next to the DockLabel and this can be achieved by setting custom DockLabel in dockingManager1_DockStateChanging event handler.

The following code snippet illustrates this.


private void dockingManager1_DockStateChanging(object sender, Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.DockStateChangeEventArgs arg)
String s = "MyPanel,Status : ";
String s1=this.dockingManager1.GetDockStyle(this.panel1).ToString();
String s2=s+s1;
this.dockingManager1.SetDockLabel(this.panel1,s2 );

Changing the font size of DockLabel

Please refer the below tutorial link on this.


Setting tooltip for DockLabel

Currently we don't have support for this feature in our code library.

Please let me know if you have any other questions.
