How to get individual floating controls properties?

To get the x,y coordinates of the control if it is in floating state,

  1. Add a list view and a docking manager to your form.
  2. Enable the list view as a dock control.
this.dockingManager1.SetEnableDocking(this.listView1,true);
Me.dockingManager1.SetEnableDocking(Me.listView1, True)
  1. Set the control as a non-dockable floating window.
this.dockingManager1.SetFloatOnly(this.listView1,true);
Me.dockingManager1.SetFloatOnly(Me.listView1,True)
  1. Determine whether the control is floating using the IsFloating() method. 
    • If true, then the control is being hosted in a subclass of the Form type and this host form can be retrieved through the control’s TopLevelControl property.
    • Once, we have the top level form, x and y co-ordinates can be retrieved using Control.Location property of that form.
// Get the FloatingForm object to get location of control.FloatingForm is a Form derived class.

DockHost dockHost = this.listView1.Parent as Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.DockHost;

FloatingForm floatForm = dockHost.ParentForm as FloatingForm;

MessageBox.Show(floatForm.Location.ToString());
' Get the FloatingForm object to get location of control.FloatingForm is a Form derived class.

Dim dockHost As DockHost = CType(IIf(TypeOf Me.listView1.Parent Is Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.DockHost, Me.listView1.Parent, Nothing), Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.DockHost)

Dim floatForm As FloatingForm = CType(IIf(TypeOf dockHost.ParentForm Is FloatingForm, dockHost.ParentForm, Nothing), FloatingForm)

MessageBox.Show(floatForm.Location.ToString())
