How to close document window via keyboard?

Docking/MDI for WPF Forum

I would like to know if there is a way to allow a user to close a tabbed document window without having to use the mouse and click on the "x" button.  For a ToolWindow I am able to use "Shift+Esc", but that doesn't seem to work for document window.

Hi Brad,

Yes, Ctrl+F4 will close the current document.

Another option is to enable mouse middle click to close the tab (it's easier then clicking the little X), and it is standard among a lot of applications such as web browsers.

<docking:TabbedMdiHost x:Name="tabbedMdiHost" CanDocumentsCloseOnMiddleClick="True">
