Visual C#® Windows® 7 Style Form
Windows 7 Docking
One of the new features of the Windows 7 is the quality of being able to dock applications to various parts of the screen. Changing a Windows Form in .NET to copy the behavior of a Windows 7 application is not too hard.
The Windows 7 Visual C# style application will also run in other Windows editions and it will not be same like in Windows.
The first part of docking a Form in Visual C# is getting the information on when a application is docked and when it is not. In Windows 7, if you drag a application to any of the four sides of the desktop then it will place the window to that particular edge but in Visual C# window, it will dock when you drag a windowÂ to either the left, right or top edges of the desktop.
If you want to make it easy to drag the application horizontally while remaining docked to the sides the the .NET Form should stick to the top when docked.
The Windows 7 style Form behavior is not complex but it is prone to bugs. You can acheive behaviou by using Visual C# Form Events or processing Form messages directly.
Events give a cleaner accomplishment more compatible with .NET code. However events are released after inner Windows messages are processed.
Windows flickering can be avoided by processing window messages by overriding WndProc in the Visual C# Form. By doing this, you can change the Windows behavior before it is showed on the screen. Thus the Windows will act smoothly.
The disadvantage of overriding the WndProc in Visual C# Form is that the code is less clean or it is complicated .NET code. Additionally it can cause issues with other operations that deal with Windows messages
Windows 7 Form
To fulfill your purposes the .NET Form will override the WndProc. The behavior is same as that of Windows 7 application, but it is not exactly the same. Now it is up to you that you want to tweak the code for more accurate Windows 7 style Form in .NET.
