How can I access the properties of Splitter used in docking?

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


The Splitter which DockingManager using is a DragSplitter object.We could access that using the following method


// Accessing DragSplitter

private void dockingManager1_DockStateChanged(object sender, Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.DockStateChangeEventArgs arg){

   foreach(DockControllerBase dcb in dockingManager1.DockAreaControllers){

    if(dcb is DragSplitterController ){

     DragSplitterController dsc =(dcb as DragSplitterController);

     DragSplitter ds=(DragSplitter )dcb.HostControl;

//We could change properties of ds as per the requirement






' Accessing DragSplitter

Private Sub DockingManager1_DockStateChanged(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal arg As Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.DockStateChangeEventArgs) Handles DockingManager1.DockStateChanged

Dim dcb As DockControllerBase

For Each dcb In DockingManager1.DockAreaControllers

If dcb.GetType() Is GetType(DragSplitterController) Then

Dim dsc As DragSplitterController = CType(dcb, DragSplitterController)

Dim ds As DragSplitter = CType(dcb.HostControl, DragSplitter)

'We could change properties of ds as per the requirement

ds.BackColor = Color.Green

End If


End Sub

We need to set DragSplitter properties after each DockState Change because DockingManager will create/destroy DragSplitters accoring to the new state.
