Dynamic control docking RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    can anyone tell me if VS 2005 Beta 2 contains a control that will allow me to dock a user control / form? I'm interested in getting the sliding docking feature found in VS 2003 / 2005; the one where you can pin a panel if required (ala Toolbox, Server Explorer etc).

    Thanks for your help

  • There is no support for docking windows in Windows Forms 2.0.  We do have a sample internally that mimics the Visual Studio 2005 docking windows implementation.  This sample will be posted to the MSDN smart client dev cetner before Visual Studio 2005 ships.

  • In the meantime, check this out. I'm using it to some degree in a VS 2005 Beta 2 app and it works. Check out the forum on the same page as there is at least one bug. Fortunately a simple fix is presented in the forums.
    Strange that docking panel is not standard control.
    Enjoy.

  • Hi, I've been looking around in the Smart Client and Windows Forms dev centers and still couldn't find out your docking sample... Any news on that?

    Moreover, I would be extremely interested by the second nature of those standard docking controls: Multi Tab Child Forms!

    Thanks

    Thanks
