Create a modeless window

Docking/MDI for WPF Forum

Hey everyone,

I recently download a trial to see if this API has everything that I need and so far I am impressed. I got the window docking working relatively fast, but there is one thing that I seem to be having an issue on. It seems that this API has no modal/modeless support. I do have a few windows, (about, settings, etc.) that I would like to add without any docking properties to it. Is there a way to do this or are all windows dockable by nature?

Hi Sebastian,

Thank you for evaluating our products.  Our docking windows are similar to Visual Studio's and other common IDE applications.  The docking windows themselves are designed to only be modeless. 

You can of course open any normal WPF Window as needed and show it modally though.  That is what apps like Visual Studio do for things like About windows, which should be modal.
