Hello, is possible sort the items in the menu that indicates the list of opened tabbed documents? The default behavior is display the items in that menu in appearance order, but I want to sort this in alphabetical order.

Thanks for the great suggestion. I'll add it to the TODO list.

is the feature of a sortable tabbed MDI documents menu still on your ToDo list, or have you implemented it meanwhile?

I am renewing this suggestion, because one of our customers has asked for it now. The inquiry was, whether the menu items of open documents can be ordered alphabetically.

Best regards,

I don't believe we have any built-in functionality for that however you can handle the dockManager.ActiveFilesContextMenu event and the event arguments for that pass the default ContextMenu that is built. You can sort the items in that handler since it occurs before they are displayed.

The latest build of this product (v24.1.0) was released 4 months ago, which was after the last post in this thread.
