AutoHide docking tool window does not dock properly on Windows 8

Docking/MDI for WPF Forum

Posted 11 years ago by Charles Feng

I have an auto-hide tool window in a docksite declared as below:

    <docking:ToolWindowContainer x:Name="RightHandToolboxContainer">
        <docking:ToolWindow x:Name="toolBox" CanBecomeDocument="False">


On Windows 7 it works fine.

However on Windows 8, when it is hidden and you hover over to make it pop out, it appears in middle of the main window, not anchored to right of the window.

Any ideas?

Hi Charlie,

Are you sure you are using the latest version 2013.2?  We recently found that non-hosted auto-hide popups had layout problems due to how WPF popups handle the "right-handed" setting on tablet PCs like Surface.  We fixed that issue in 2013.2 though.
