Cancelling drag-float operation does not always revert to previous state

Docking/MDI for WPF Forum

Posted 8 years ago by Markus Springweiler
Version: 16.1.0631
Platform: .NET 4.5
Environment: Windows 8 (64-bit)

Can be reproduced with any sample which contains documents and toolwindows, for example the first Simle-IDE sample:

  1. dock "Solution Explorer" as document
  2. start drag-float operation with now documentified Solution Explorer
  3. hit ESC for cancelling the operation

The solution explorer is now docked as tool window again instead of being a document as it was the state before the drag-float operation started.


This also happens with ToolWindows which have been documentified from the very start (defined in XAML) and never ever had been docked before.

Hi Markus,

The problem here is that when you drag a tool window from the MDI area, it instantly goes into a floating window back in docked state, and thus it thinks when you press Esc that it was last in docked state.

We will look into fixing this for the next maintenance release.
