Display ouput panels vertically

Hi, it is possible to display output panels (for example: winforms output panel and results panel or wpf output and results) vertically one bellow the other? I would like to dump some winform controls (panel or list of buttons or whatever) and bellow its output panel I want to see the results panel for standard dumps.. Is there some solution how to do that or, if not, it is possible to implement this feature in near future?

  • This is not possible out of the box. However, you could write a method in My Extensions to accomplish this. Something like this:
    public static class MyExtensions
    {	
    	static WebBrowser _browser;
    	static Panel _winFormsPanel;
    	static TextWriter _formatter;
    
    	public static T DumpMixed<T> (this T toDump)
    	{
    		var panel = PanelManager.GetOutputPanel ("Mixed");
    		bool first = panel == null;
    		if (first)
    		{
    			var table = new TableLayoutPanel();
    			
    			table.RowStyles.Add (new RowStyle (SizeType.Percent, 50));
    			table.RowStyles.Add (new RowStyle (SizeType.Percent, 50));
    			
    			table.ColumnStyles.Add (new ColumnStyle (SizeType.Percent, 100));
    			
    			_browser = new WebBrowser() { Anchor = AnchorStyles.Left | AnchorStyles.Top | AnchorStyles.Right | AnchorStyles.Bottom };
    			_winFormsPanel = new Panel() { Anchor = AnchorStyles.Left | AnchorStyles.Top | AnchorStyles.Right | AnchorStyles.Bottom };
    			
    			table.Controls.Add (_browser, 0, 0);
    			table.Controls.Add (_winFormsPanel, 0, 1);
    			
    			PanelManager.DisplayControl (table, "Mixed");
    			
    			_formatter = Util.CreateXhtmlWriter (true);
    			
    			bool init = true;
    			_browser.DocumentCompleted += (sender, args) =>
    			{
    				if (init) _browser.DocumentText = _formatter.ToString();
    				init = false;
    			};
    		}
    
    		if (toDump is Control c)
    		{
    			c.Dock = DockStyle.Fill;
    			c.Parent = _winFormsPanel;
    			return toDump;
    		}
    
    		_formatter.WriteLine (toDump);
    
    		if (first || _browser.ReadyState == System.Windows.Forms.WebBrowserReadyState.Complete)
    			_browser.DocumentText = _formatter.ToString();
    
    		return toDump;
    	}
    }
  • Thank you very much, I will try it out.. Anyway, I've one more question about Dump() rendering: I suppose, that the standard results panel contains winforms WebBrowser control for Dump() output rendering.. If so, would it be possible to somehow set its ObjectForScripting property? I know, I can write my own output panel containing WebBrowser control and use it, but I think, it will be better if this can be done through default results output panel.. thx..
  • With this solution, you won't be able to redirect the ObjectForScripting.
