How to change the color of the splitter in the docking control?


The color of the splitter in the docking control can be changed using DragSplitter class and DragSplitterController class.


private void dockingManager1_NewDockStateEndLoad(object sender, EventArgs e)


this.dockingManager1.VisualStyle = VisualStyle.Default;

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

ds.BackColor = System.Drawing.Color.Green;





Private Sub dockingManager1_NewDockStateEndLoad(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs) Handles dockingManager1.NewDockStateEndLoad

Me.dockingManager1.VisualStyle = VisualStyle.Default

For Each dcb As DockControllerBase In dockingManager1.DockAreaControllers

If TypeOf dcb Is DragSplitterController Then

Dim dsc As DragSplitterController = (TryCast(dcb, DragSplitterController))

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

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

ds.BackColor = System.Drawing.Color.Green

End If
