How to access the properties of splitter used in WinForms Docking Manager?

Platform: WinForms |
Control: DockingManager


The Splitter which Docking Manager 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.
