Getting Started

The jqxDockPanel widget represents a container for other widgets or elements. It arranges its inner elements depending on the value of the 'dock' attribute. The possible 'dock' attribute values are: 'left, right, top and bottom'.
Every UI widget from jQWidgets toolkit needs its JavaScript files to be included in order to work properly.

The first step is to create html page and add links to the javascript files and css dependencies to your project. The jqxDockPanel widget requires the following files:

The next step is to create a DIV element within the body of the html document and add the elements that will be inside the dock panel.

The last step is to initialize the widget by adding the following script to the html document:

To call a function(method), you need to pass the method name and parameters(if any) in the jqxDockPanel’s constructor.
To set a property(option), you need to pass the property name and value(s) in the jqxDockPanel's constructor.
$("#jqxdockpanel").jqxDockPanel({ disabled: true });
To get a property(option), you need to pass the property name to the jqxDockPanel's constructor.
var disabled = $("#jqxdockpanel").jqxDockPanel('disabled');

$("#jqxdockpanel").on('layout', function () {
