What is the difference between the WinForms Docking Manager's SetEnableDocking method and the DockControl method?

Platform: WinForms |
Control: DockingManager

Docking methods

Both SetEnableDocking and DockControl methods have the same basic function, i.e., to associate a particular control with the DockingManager by adding it to the DockingManager's Controls list.

The SetEnableDocking method simply docks the control to the left edge of the parent control with a predefined docking window width.

But the DockControl method allows us to do advanced level customization of the docking windows like specifying the form or control edge to which the control has to be docked, the width of the docking window, the docking style, etc.

So, either of the above methods, but not both of them, can be used based on the requirements of the application.


// Enable Docking with the Default size,location
//Enable docking with our custom width,parent control, docking style



'Enable docking with our custom width,parent control, docking style
' Enable Docking with the Default size,location
