How to restrict the specific dockability of child window to client area in DockingManager?

Platform: WinForms |
Control: DockingManager |
.NET Framework: 4

User can restrict the specific DockAbility of child window when it moved to the client area in DockingManager. It can be achieved by SetOuterDockAbility method. Here we have restricted the tabbed/fill dockability.


The following code demonstrates the same.



//Restrict Tabbed/Fill DockAbility
foreach(var child in dockingManager1.ControlsArray)
dockingManager1.SetOuterDockAbility(child, Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.DockAbility.Top| Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.DockAbility.Bottom| Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.DockAbility.Left| Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.DockAbility.Right);



'Restrict Tabbed/Fill DockAbility
For Each child In dockingManager1.ControlsArray
dockingManager1.SetOuterDockAbility(child, Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.DockAbility.Top Or Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.DockAbility.Bottom Or Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.DockAbility.Left Or Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.DockAbility.Right)
