Sets the value of the Dock attached property to a specified element.
Assembly: PresentationFramework (in PresentationFramework.dll)
The method changes the position of a child element relative to other child elements within the same container. Alignment properties, such as HorizontalAlignment, change the position of a child element relative to its parent element.
The example creates an instance of the TextBlock element, txt1, and assigns a Dock value of Top by using the method of DockPanel. It then appends the value of the Dock property to the Text of the TextBlock element by using the GetDock method. Finally, the example adds the TextBlock element to the parent DockPanel, dp1.
// Create the Panel DockPanel dp1 = new DockPanel(); // Create a Text Control and then set its Dock property txt1 = new TextBlock(); DockPanel.SetDock(txt1, System.Windows.Controls.Dock.Top); txt1.Text = "The Dock Property is set to " + DockPanel.GetDock(txt1); dp1.Children.Add(txt1); mainWindow.Content = dp1; mainWindow.Show();
