How to specify the docking behavior of WinForms Docking Manager at designer time?

Platform: WinForms |
Control: DockingManager

Docking state

The extended properties are available to specify docking state for a control at design time itself. They are

  • AutoHideOnLoad - Specifies the autohide state for a control. The control will be autohidden when we start the application.
  • HiddenOnLoad - This specifies whether the control should hide when we start the application.
  • FloatOnly - If this property is set for a control that control will be in floating mode always.
