Can I set the direction of a ToolWindow, create it, but not open it?

Docking/MDI for WPF Forum

I want to create a tool window in a tabbed mdi layout such that when Activate is called it will be docked on the left. I do not want to display it yet however. Is it possible do this?

Calling .Dock(..) displays it immediately.

Hi Alan,

Sorry but no, you'd need to call Dock() when you want it displayed.  The only real alternative would be to initially have it in the XAML layout and then close it prior to your app starting.  That way it would sort of know where to restore to if Activate() is called later.
