Jeff Benjamin on February 15, In my opinion, this is by far the best position for the dock if your right hand happens to be your dominant hand. Advantage 1: The most obvious advantage is that apps can now take up the full height of the screen without being obstructed by a dock positioned at the bottom of the screen.
Gets or sets a value that indicates the position of a child element within a parent DockPanel. If you set the LastChildFill property to truewhich is the default setting, the last child element of a DockPanel always fills the remaining space, regardless of any other dock value that you set on the last child element. The position of child elements of a DockPanel on the screen is determined by the Dock property of the respective child elements and the relative order of those child elements under the DockPanel.
Some of the properties of the Dock, the handy application launcher that usually resides at the bottom of your screen in OS X, can be modified to suit your preferences. Because you'll use the Dock often, you should set it up just the way you want it. The Dock's default location is the bottom of the screen, which works well for many individuals. Click the radio button of your choiceand then close the preference pane window.
Want to have the Mac Dock in the corner of the screen? The Mac OS X Dock sits centered along the bottom of the screen on every Mac by default, and most users probably assume that moving the Dock to a new location is limited to centering on either the left or right side of the screen. It turns out you can actually have much more control over the Dock positioning, and with the help of a little defaults command string you can actually pin the Dock into the corner of the Mac display.
While no one puts baby in the corner, you can ignore that time-honored advice and actually put the Dock in the corner on the screen of your Mac. First of all, use the standard Dock positioning system to put the Dock on the side of the screen you want it to end up on. Head up to click the Apple Menu, and hover your cursor over the Dock menu option.

The dock panel is a layout panel, that provides an easy docking of elements to the left, right, top, bottom or center of the panel. The dock side of an element is defined by the attached property DockPanel. To dock an element to the center of the panel, it must be the last child of the panel and the LastChildFill property must be set to true.
The DockPanel makes it easy to dock content in all four directions top, bottom, left and right. This makes it a great choice in many situations, where you want to divide the window into specific areas, especially because by default, the last element inside the DockPanel, unless this feature is specifically disabled, will automatically fill the rest of the space center. As we've seen with many of the other panels in WPF, you start taking advantage of the panel possibilities by using an attached property of it, in this case the DockPanel.
