Property Value

Type: System.Windows.Forms::ScrollableControl::DockPaddingEdges
A ScrollableControl::DockPaddingEdges that represents the padding for all the edges of a docked control.

This property controls the border inside of this control for docked components.

The following code example uses the derived class, Panel. The example docks a button in a panel control and cycles through the ScrollableControl::DockPaddingEdges properties, setting each individually on the click of the button. The example requires that you have created an instance of a Panel control and a Button on a form, and you have declared a class level member variable named myCounter as a 32-bit signed integer. You should call this code on the Click event of the button.

void SetDockPadding()
{
   // Dock the button in the panel.
   button1->Dock = System::Windows::Forms::DockStyle::Fill;

   // Reset the counter if it is greater than 5. 
   if ( myCounter > 5 )
   {
      myCounter = 0;
   }

   // Set the appropriate DockPadding and display 
   // which one was set on the button face. 
   switch ( myCounter )
   {
      case 0:
         panel1->DockPadding->All = 0;
         button1->Text = "Start";
         break;

      case 1:
         panel1->DockPadding->Top = 10;
         button1->Text = "Top";
         break;

      case 2:
         panel1->DockPadding->Bottom = 10;
         button1->Text = "Bottom";
         break;

      case 3:
         panel1->DockPadding->Left = 10;
         button1->Text = "Left";
         break;

      case 4:
         panel1->DockPadding->Right = 10;
         button1->Text = "Right";
         break;

      case 5:
         panel1->DockPadding->All = 20;
         button1->Text = "All";
         break;
   }
   myCounter++;
}
