There two ways to detect whether a FrameworkElement is hosted in DockingManager or not. They are:

  1. Getting DockingManager instance for a FrameworkElement and checking whether it is null or not.
  2. Detecting whether the FrameworkElement is present in the Children collection of DockingManager.

The two ways are shown below:

  • C#
  • //Getting DockingManager Instance.
    DockingManager manager=DockingManager.GetDockingManager(element1);
    //Checking whether element1 is in children collection.
