Ho To Hide Client Area

Docking/MDI for Windows Forms Forum

My application is designed entirely of ToolWindows (some of which are not closeable), and I don't use the client area of my container form. How do I hide the client area so that my ToolWindows fill the entire form?

I thought I saw a "HideClient" property in an early beta, but I don't see any obvious property for this in the final release.

Thanks for the help!

Hi Boyd,

We don't support what will be called "inner fill" yet however that was one of the primary reasons we implemented UIStudio differently than DockableWindow. The UIStudio design allows for inner fill of tool windows to be added as a feature. It's on our TODO list to get done soon.

Glad to see it's on the TODO list. I'll just hold off on converting this project until that feature makes it in.

Thanks!
