I have no idea about this, except setting all CanDockHost* to false.

Any other simpler way?
Thx

That is the correct way to do it.

But there is a flaw with this method.

At the startup, that undockable toolwindow was docked somewhere by default. That's not perfect for my purpose.
Actually, what I need is a top-most form, but just being top-most of the hosting applicatiion. So I couldn't simply set the TopMost property of the form to true, that's applied to all apps.

Besides, I just found that even after disabled all CanDock* and disabled the CanAttach property, it's still dockble to default dock location, the left area.


Is there a way to completely disable the docking feature of the tool window?

Do those things AND take it out of a dockable state (ToolWindow.State). That should get it working like you want.

It works!
Thx.

Anyway, I'd like to see an individual property CanDock to configure this feature.
