Control doc area size?

Docking/MDI for Windows Forms Forum

In addition to the standard menu bar and status bar, I have a news ticker positioned above the status bar.   The problem is that the dock manager draws the windows under the news ticker.   Is there a way to force the dock manager to exclude the region taken by the news ticker?

Hi Tom,

You can assign the DockManager.HostContainerControl to any ContainerControl, which can be a Form (generally what customers do) or even a UserControl.  In your case, perhaps put a UserControl in the area where the docking windows should be and make that your DockManager.HostContainerControl.
