MindFusion Dock Manager: Layout

User Interaction that Makes a Difference

MindFusion Dock manager provides smooth and fast drag and drop functionality that makes it so easy to arrange and rearrange dock panels according to the user's needs at the very moment. The dock control updates dynamically its client area in order to render a correct preview of the presumable new location of the dragged window. The dock navigation arrows appear the moment you start dragging any of the dock items hosted in the layout manager. Every layout is performed seamlessly, without the tiniest delay.

Flexible Dock Item Layout

Each dock item supports a line of dock states that are easy to change as the user starts interacting with the application. You can choose among a dockable window, tabbed documents or a floating panel. Another option is to set the Auto-Hide option that strictly emulates the panels of Visual Studio. Of course, you can hide the dock item completely.
