    I was browsing through the new documentation today and noticed something I thought I better get clarification on. In the documentation for Q3 it says that when creating custom dock objects you can either derive from UserDockControl or UserDockForm. In previous versions I was deriving from DockPanel.

    What I have still works with my newly installed Q3 but I wonder if I should be changing all of those controls from DockPanel to UserDockControl.

    What is the difference? Do I gain anything one way or the other?

    Hello Alex Peachey,

    Thank you for writing.

    There is no the general difference between DockPanel and UserDockConrol. The only difference between the two is in the base class: DockPanel inherits from Panel, while UserDockControl inherits from UserControl.

    Your approach is correct, and you can continue to use your current application design.

    I hope this was helpful. If you have any further questions, please contact us.

    Sincerely yours,
