How to close a docked control programmatically in WinForms Docking Manager?

Platform: WinForms |
Control: DockingManager

Closing a docked control

When a docked control is closed, its visibility is set to false and not actually closed. The docked control''s object will be disposed when the parent form is closed only. So docked control can be programmatically closed using SetDockVisibility() method.


private void closePanelToolStripMenuItem_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
  this.dockingManager1.SetDockVisibility(this.panel1, false);
private void showPanelToolStripMenuItem_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
  this.dockingManager1.SetDockVisibility(this.panel1, true);



Private Sub closePanelToolStripMenuItem_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs) Handles closePanelToolStripMenuItem.Click
  Me.dockingManager1.SetDockVisibility(Me.panel1, False)
End Sub
Private Sub showPanelToolStripMenuItem_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs) Handles showPanelToolStripMenuItem.Click
  Me.dockingManager1.SetDockVisibility(Me.panel1, True)
End Sub
