Auto-hidden tab size

Docking/MDI for WPF Forum

I'm using the Docking & MDI feature on a touchscreen, and the tabs are too small to easily tap. What's the simplest way to make them larger? I've been fiddling with a supposed solution involving Style, DataTemplate, and TextBlock elements; while that did make the tabs larger, it also made the text disappear. And anyhow, I feel like this should be an attribute, not its own element heirarchy.

Hi Chris,

You might be able to make an implicit Style that targets AutoHideTabItem and set its Padding to something larger.  Right now it defaults to 2.  Maybe make it "10,4"?  See if that helps.

Aha! Apologies for that actually being a WPF question; I'm still catching up with the tools for this project.

The client and I are both given to Fat Finger Syndome, so I made them 20, 8... and the DocumentWindows might be getting that treatment as well.

Many thanks.
