How to remove the close button on particular docked window?


User can hide the close button for the specific dock window. It can be achieved by adding only the required custom buttons to custom caption buttons collection to the control using the SetCustomCaptionButtons function of DockingManager. Here we can add only the Menu and Pin caption buttons in second dock window. The following code demonstrates the same. 



//Initialize CaptionButtonsCollection
private CaptionButtonsCollection captionButtons = new CaptionButtonsCollection();
//Initialize required Caption Buttons
Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.CaptionButton menu = new Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.CaptionButton(CaptionButtonType.Menu);
Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.CaptionButton pin = new Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.CaptionButton(CaptionButtonType.Pin);
//Add required caption buttons into CaptionButtons collection
//Add CaptionButtons collection into required panel/dock window
this.dockingManager1.SetCustomCaptionButtons(this.panel2, captionButtons);



‘Initialize CaptionButtonsCollection
Private captionButtons As New CaptionButtonsCollection()
‘Initialize required Caption Buttons
Dim menu As New Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.CaptionButton(CaptionButtonType.Menu) 
Dim pin As New Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.CaptionButton(CaptionButtonType.Pin) 
‘Add required caption buttons into CaptionButtons collection
//Add CaptionButtons collection into required panel/dock window
Me.dockingManager1.SetCustomCaptionButtons(Me.panel2, captionButtons)
