How to prevent tabbed docking?

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


If you dont want to make two docked controls tabbed together , then you can cancel the tabbed docking in DockAllow event as follows.


 void dockingManager1_DockAllow(object sender, DockAllowEventArgs arg)


if (arg.DockStyle == Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.DockingStyle.Tabbed)

arg.Cancel = true;




Private Sub dockingManager1_DockAllow(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal arg As DockAllowEventArgs)

   If arg.DockStyle = Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.DockingStyle.Tabbed Then

    arg.Cancel = True

   End If

 End Sub
