Retain tab items

Docking/MDI for WPF Forum

Posted 8 years ago by Ray

   I will want to retain a tabitem at its side of its docksite regardless of whether it is in a floating or docked state. That is, floating a tabitem should float its associated window but not pull off the tab from its docksite location. In addition, when a tab comes back to its autohidden state, it should come back to its original tab.

Thanks, any help on this will be appreciated.

Hi Ray,

I'm sorry but we don't have any functionality for keeping a tab in the main DockSite while the related docking window is floating.  If an auto-hidden tab is closed and then reopened, it should return to its old location.  But if you move it elsewhere and then put it back in auto-hide, I believe it will always go to the end of the tabs on the side it auto-hides to.
