Rendering Menu on Dock Tool Window

Docking/MDI for Windows Forms Forum

Why does the context menu (Floating, Dockable etc...) appear as Office2003 when the DockManager render selection is set as VS2005?

When is you ToolBar BETA to be released and will the BETA correct this problem. Would you agree it would look odd having the context menu appear as Office2003 when other menu items render like VS2005. Is there a way to turn off the context menu on the ToolWindow?

All the built-in menus for DockManager can be cancelled so that you can display your own popup menus instead.

Look at the 'ActiveFilesContextMenu' and 'WindowContextMenu' events. They are used to trigger the popup menus.

By default we just use our owner-draw menus which currently only draw using the default Windows XP settings. As Boyd said, you can cancel those and use your own menus instead.

And yes, once our menus/toolbars are done, they will support Office and VS.NET themes so that things will match according to what settings you have on the BarManager and DockManager.
