How to prevent tabbed docking in WinForms Docking Manager?

Platform: WinForms |
Control: DockingManager

DockAllow event

If you don’t 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
