How to access the collection of dock-enabled controls?

Platform: WinForms |
Control: DockingManager |
Published Date: April 30, 2011 |
Last Revised Date: July 10, 2014


The DockingManager.Controls property returns an enumerator that may be used for accessing the controls that are currently associated with the DockingManager.

If you want to modify the DockingManager’s control set in any way, then the contents of the enumerator should first be copied to a temporary collection. The following sample shows an implementation that disables docking and disposes of all the dockable controls:


IEnumerator ienum = this.dockingManager1.Controls;

ArrayList dockedctrls = new ArrayList();



foreach(Control ctrl in dockedctrls)


this.dockingManager1.SetEnableDocking(ctrl, false);




Dim ienum As IEnumerator = Me.dockingManager1.Controls

Dim dockedctrls As ArrayList = New ArrayList()

Do While ienum.MoveNext()



Dim ctrl As Control

For Each ctrl In dockedctrls

Me.dockingManager1.SetEnableDocking(ctrl, False)
