The Visual Studio inspired docking library for .NET WinForms
Microsoft first introduced the docking panel layout in Visual Studio .NET (2002), and soon it became popular in application design. Many commercial .NET component vendors started to provide docking libraries initially, but there was no good free and open source alternative, until WeiFen Luo released DockPanel Suite (DPS for short) on SourceForge.net in 2006.
After an 18 month hiatus, the project has been resurrected and is now being actively developed on GitHub.
The latest stable release, DockPanel Suite 3.0.2, was released on 14 Nov 2017. Get it via direct download or NuGet.
DockPanel Suite is currently maintained by @roken and @lextm.
The documentation site contains information on how to get started with the DockPanel Suite as well as recipes for a number of common tasks.
