Sneak peek: Visual Studio dock style for VCL docking library (coming in v2011.1)

26 April 2011

We have implemented a new dock style for our ExpressDocking Library: the Visual Studio look and feel (suggestion: DS2222). Here it is in action:

Switching the dock style can be performed via the newly introduced DockStyle property of a docking manager instance (TdxDockingManager). The property values are dsStandard (the current behavior and default value) and dsVS2005 (the new style).

Will this be available as standard in Expressbars Suite V6?

The dock style described above is implemented in our recently released ExpressBars v2011 vol 1. We are not going to add this dock style to the ExpressBars Suite v6.
