On TitleBarPanel the title-TextBlock has its property TextTrimming set to CharacterEllipsis but property TextWrapping is untouched and may inherit a global style -- and a multi-line title looks very ugly.

Hi Markus,

Ok, we will explicitly set TextWrapping for the next build.

Updated to 632: No wrapping any more but also not any ellipsis for a reason I don't understand: Snoop does not even show the ellipsis for the single TextBlock; but at least in 3D view of Snoop you can see that the ellipsis is behind the right aligned contextual content template.

Hi Markus,

Sorry but we're not seeing this happen in our samples, even in the Custom Title Bar Content one.  In that when the containers are sized thing, we see ellipses fine. 

For scenarios like this, please always make a new simple sample project and send it to our support address so that we can debug with that and see what's going on.  Be sure to rename the .zip file extension of what you send so it doesn't get spam blocked.

Just enable DockSite.ToolWindowsHaveTitleBarIcons and you'll see no ellipsis any more.

Thanks, we found the problem in the TitleBarPanel measure code.  It's fixed for the next maintenance release.
