This demo illustrates how a typical scenario - implementation of web gadgets on a page - can be realized using docking components provided by the DevExpress MVC Docking Extension suite.
The Docking suite offers three extensions - DockPanel, DockZone, and DockManager. They allow you to manage content placeholders (dock panels), which can be moved by end-users between particular areas (dock zones) within a web page. A dock panel can either be docked to a dock zone or made floating. Dock zones can be placed on any part of a page and their orientation and size are fully customizable. DockManager allows you to provide centralized programmatic control of all dock panels and dock zones contained within a page.
