Exposes methods and properties to support access by a Microsoft UI Automation client to controls that expose their dock properties in a docking container. Implement this interface in order to support the capabilities that an automation client requests with a GetPattern call and PatternInterface.Dock.
The IDockProvider interface has these types of members:
The IDockProvider interface has these methods. It also inherits methods from the Object class.
|SetDockPosition||Docks the control in a docking container.|
The IDockProvider interface has these properties.
|Read-only||Gets the current DockPosition of the control in a docking container.|
A docking container is a control that allows you to arrange child elements horizontally and vertically, relative to each other. For more info on what this pattern is for, see Dock Control Pattern.
IDockProvider isn't implemented by any existing Windows Runtime automation peers. The interface exists so that custom control authors can support the automation pattern in a custom control, and implement their automation support using the same Windows Runtime managed or C++ APIs as they use to define control logic or other automation support.
