Docking/Undocking Cells

Each cell of the layout can be docked or undocked.


If the last visible cell in a row/column becomes collapsed, and there is at least one undocked item in the layout, one of the undocked items will be docked and expanded.


What do the "docked/undocked" states mean?


All cells in the layout are docked by default.

The undocked cells are those cells which were taken out of the layout and displayed in a separate window. Note, to undock a cell you need to have dhtmlxWindows's source files included on the page.


Docked cell



Undocked cell



To undock a cell, use the undock method:

myLayout.cells(id).undock();

To dock a cell back, use the dock method:

myLayout.cells(id).dock();


When a cell is undocked you can operate with the window, for this purpose use:

myLayout.dhxWins.window(id).doSome(...);

The window's id is the same as the cell's id.
