DockLayoutManager.DockItemClosing Event

Fires before a dock item is closed (hidden), and allows you to prevent this action.

Namespace:DevExpress.Xpf.Docking
Assembly:DevExpress.Xpf.Docking.v17.1.dll

Expanded Syntax

Expanded Event Data

The event handler receives an argument of type ItemCancelEventArgs containing data related to this event.

The following ItemCancelEventArgs properties provide information specific to this event.
Property Description
Cancel Gets or sets whether the current operation must be canceled.
Handled Gets or sets a value that indicates the present state of the event handling for a routed event as it travels the route.
Item Gets the currently processed item.
OriginalSource Gets the original reporting source as determined by pure hit testing, before any possible System.Windows.RoutedEventArgs.Source adjustment by a parent class.
RoutedEvent Gets or sets the System.Windows.RoutedEventArgs.RoutedEvent associated with this System.Windows.RoutedEventArgs instance.
Source Gets or sets a reference to the object that raised the event.

Expanded Remarks

To prevent a dock item from being closed (hidden), set the event's Cancel parameter to true, or set the BaseLayoutItem.AllowClose option to false. After an item has been closed, the DockItemClosed event fires.

Closed items can be accessed via the ClosedPanels collection.

The currently closed dock item is specified by the event's Item parameter.

Floating panels are created with the help of float groups. If a float group contains a single panel, a single close ('x') button exists there:

Clicking this button closes the float group, hiding the nested dock panel. The DockItemClosing event fires only for the float group object. To access the dock panel nested within the float group, see the float group's LayoutGroup.Items collection.

If a float group contains two or more panels, the 'x' button is displayed for the float group, and all its nested panels:

Again, clicking the 'x' button for the float group fires the DockItemClosing event for the float group object. If the 'x' button is clicked for panels, the DockItemClosing event fires with the Item parameter referring to the corresponding panel.
