How to disable particular docking style of docking window?

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


This can be done by checking DockingStyle enumeration in DockAllow event. Suppose to avoid tabbed style the DockingStyle enumeration has to be checked for Tabbed and that particular event should be avoided. Please refer the below code snippet which illustartes this:


void dockingManager1_DockAllow(object sender, Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.DockAllowEventArgs arg)


if (arg.DockStyle == DockingStyle.Tabbed)


arg.Cancel = true;




Private Sub DockingManager1_DockAllow(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal arg As Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.DockAllowEventArgs)

'throw new Exception("The method or operation is not implemented.");

If arg.DockStyle = DockingStyle.Tabbed Then

arg.Cancel = True

End If

End Sub
