Overview

The UWP Docking control provides an interface to create Visual Studio-like dockable windows in your applications. Dock panels support many interactions like docking, floating, tabbing, autohiding and document tabs. Allow user to resize, move, and change the behavior of windows to create a layout that suits various development models.


Flexible Layout Options

Docking

Child panels can be docked to the left, right, top, or bottom sides of the container.

Floating

Child panels can be dragged interactively around the screen to make them float over any location on the docking manager client area.

Tabbed

Two or more child panels can be docked at the same location using tabs.


Autohidden

In the autohidden option, panels that are not being used automatically collapse into the frame of the container (like the toolbox in Visual Studio) and expand when the associated tabs are clicked on.

Document

The docking manager also helps implement document container-like applications in which the child panels can also become child windows. The container is laid out in a Visual Studio-style tabbed layout.
