Angular Docking Component

The Docking component for Angular represents a widget which allows you to manage multiple windows and even the layout of your web page. Each window in the Docking can be dragged around the Web page, docked into docking zones, removed from the docking, collapsed into a minimized state to hide its content, expanded to display its content or pinned in place.


Refer to Angular Getting Started before you start with this help topic.


I. Imports

The full list of @Component decorator properties is available on: Angular @Component Decorator API

Every jQWidgets Angular component has an [auto-create] attribute which determines whether the component is automatically created or is created on demand by API method call.
By default, the [auto-create] attribute value is true.

IV. Create Docking component with JSON


The properties which are defined as attributes can be changed directly:

To get or set a property, which we did not define or call a method, we can do the following:

Every component has a method setOptions which accepts a JSON object as an argument. This object contains component settings and you can use it to set a single or multiple properties dynamically.


The dragStart event is triggered when the user start to drag any window.

The following example demonstrates how to add an event listener.

Note: Event Names of the Docking component for Angular are the same as the Event Names of the jqxDocking widget.
The only thing you need to do is to put "on" before the event name and upperCase it's the first letter.


To invoke methods, you can use the Docking reference.
 ( enable() to enable the widget )  - this.myDocking.enable().
