Is there an easy way to add an additional button to the title bar for a standard MDI document window? I need a help button in addition to the standard minimize/restore/close buttons. The sample browser only shows tabbed MDI document title bar customization.

Cheers :)

Hi Paul,

I'm sorry but there isn't a way to add that other than cloning our default style/template and inserting the button into a modified version of that.

Thanks. In that case, would it be possible to get a TitleBarContentTemplate property added to DocumentWindow to allow it to be customized in the same way as RibbonWindow?

Hi Paul,

I'm not sure that would really work since docking windows can be in multiple kinds of states (standard MDI, rafted, tabbed MDI, etc.) and all of them have different appearances.  One template wouldn't really work across the multiple states.
