Parking on hill with DCT

I have a simple question. When you park your DCT car on a steep hill, can you pull the hand brake, then put your car in gear somehow to lock it in. I am so used to doing it with a manual shift and my cousin told me he did the same with his SMG E46 M3. Not sure if it is possible with my DCT M. Just relying on the hand brake alone worries me a little bit. Thanks in advance.

once you the M goes into park it actually puts it into a gear for added assurance

Thanks KKSigua. Do you know if that happens the moment "P" is showing on our display?
