For docking, this will cause it to be docked last, so it will appear innermost. So if you have multiple controls docked to the same edge of a form, sending one of those controls to the back in the editor will move it to the edge of the form, and bringing it to the front will move it inwards. The purpose of a splitter is to divide a window into two resizable portions. For example, the bar that divides the folders pane from the contents pane in a Windows Explorer window is a splitter. The user can drag the splitter around to change the way the space is shared between the two panes.

Combining scrolling and docking In fact, there is a little more to docking than was discussed in Chapter 2, so it is time to revisit the topic. Docking We saw in Chapter 2 how to get a control to attach itself to the edge of a form by using the Dock property. What we didn’t look at was what happens when more than one control in a given window uses docking. Not only can you have multiple controls docked in a single window, you can even have more than one docked to the same edge, but it is important to understand exactly what the Windows Forms layout logic does under these circumstances.

This gives our code a chance to execute custom layout logic. So during normal operation, layout will be performed every time a window changes size, or any of its contents are moved or resized. Most of the time, this is fine, but what about when we are creating the window? Everything we do during initialization would cause it to perform another layout. This would be a waste of time, because only the very last layout it does would stick. So during initialization, we call the form’s SuspendLayout method at the start, and then the form’s ResumeLayout method when we have finished arranging the contents of the form.
