the ultimate in docking windows and toolbarsDockStudioXP provides you with the ability to deliver Visual Studio.NET or Microsoft Office XP/2000 style toolbars and dockable windows. If you have evaluated other toolbar, splitter or docking controls in the past, you will immediately appreciate the value of the Visual layout designer, comprehensive runtime customisation features and the Visual Studio.NET style docking windows support.
DockStudioXP is a dependancy free .NET ready COM Component. Unlike some other COM Controls, DockStudioXP has been specifically engineered and tested to work in Visual Studio.NET/WinForms.
Visual Studio.NET style dockingDockStudioXP allows you to implement the ultimate in docking flexibility with no complex manual coding.
Dockable windows provide a rich customization experience for users of your application, allowing the user to redesign the layout of the application to make use of personal preferences for screen real estate – some users prefer to have all of an applications options out in plain sight, while other users prefer to concentrate solely on the task at hand without being distracted by options they don’t need right now.
Dockable windows in the DockStudio control support a variety of distinct arrangement states to maximize this user experience. Dockable windows can be:
You can dock windows to any area of your form simply by dragging the windows caption to the desired area (just as in the Visual Studio and Visual Studio.NET IDE).
You can even dock windows to other windows to create Visual Studio.NET style Tab-docked windows.
Docked windows can be collapsed to Visual Studio.NET style buttons.
Clicking on a collapsed window button causes the window to 'fly out'. This docking technique allows you to provide easy access to infrequently used windows.
For complete flexibility, the docking state of any DockWindow can be controlled programmatically through the comprehensive DockStudioXP object model.
Visual DesignerThe Visual Designer included with DockStudioXP makes creating Toolbar and DockWindow layouts a breeze.
Simply drag and drop commands from the Layout Explorer onto your Toolbars. Size and arrange DockWindows and Toolbars just as you would at runtime.
Document managementTake the pain out of managing the client area of your application by using the inbuilt document management features in DockStudioXP. Choose between SDI, MDI or Tabbed MDI, or control your own client area control by using the intuitive resize event model.
MDI document windows are fully supported, including the new 'Tabbed MDI' style implemented in Visual Studio.NET.
Tabbed MDI mode supports "tab grouping" through the use of document groups and drag and drop positioning.
This allows the users of your application to reposition their documents for side by side editing into logical groups, in any position, simply by dragging a tab into the desired position.
Document groups and document ordering can all be controlled programmatically through the comprehensive DockStudioXP object model.
Runtime customisationGive your end-users the ability to fully customize your applications Toolbars without a single line of code.
DockStudio also ships with a set of companion controls to assist you in 'rolling your own' customize dialogs, should you need a feature not exposed by the default implementation.
