'Declaration <BrowsableAttribute(False)> _ Public ReadOnly Property DockPadding As ScrollableControl.DockPaddingEdges
Property ValueType: System.Windows.Forms.ScrollableControl.DockPaddingEdges
A ScrollableControl.DockPaddingEdges that represents the padding for all the edges of a docked control.
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.
Private Sub 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 Then myCounter = 0 End If ' Set the appropriate DockPadding and display ' which one was set on the button face. Select Case myCounter Case 0 panel1.DockPadding.All = 0 button1.Text = "Start" Case 1 panel1.DockPadding.Top = 10 button1.Text = "Top" Case 2 panel1.DockPadding.Bottom = 10 button1.Text = "Bottom" Case 3 panel1.DockPadding.Left = 10 button1.Text = "Left" Case 4 panel1.DockPadding.Right = 10 button1.Text = "Right" Case 5 panel1.DockPadding.All = 20 button1.Text = "All" End Select ' Increment the counter. myCounter += 1 End Sub
