Hi

If I have a ToolWindow and I have dragged it out of its ToolWindowContainer, is it possible for that ToolWindow to have its own item in the Windows Taskbar?

Similar to how in Visual Studio 2010 if you drag a code window out onto another screen an additional Icon appears in the Taskbar, and when you hover over you can preview the open windows.

Thanks in advance

Stuart

Hi Stuart,

You'd have to override the DockSite.CreateRaftingWindow method and if the base method call's result is a Window, then set its ShowInTaskbar property to true.

Thanks, that sounds perfect.
