Need to be notified when a docking window is floated or docked back.

Docking/MDI for WPF Forum

Hello, Actipro People!

I know that the Floating value was removed from the DockingWindowState enumeration recently, thus I can't hook to the floating state change anymore. What I ended up doing is casting the DockSite.FloatingDockHosts collection to an INotifyCollectionChanged and hooking onto its CollectionChanged event. This way I can check for the "Add" (basically a new floating window) and "Remove" (going back to docked state) actions and do my work on the DockHosts that I want.

Though my question is: is there a cleaner way to hook onto the proverbial float event of a window?

Thank you.

Hi Alexandre,

We don't have anything at the moment for this but could you describe in detail why you need to know when a docking window changes from being in the main DockSite to within a floating DockHost and back?  That would help us better assess the scenario to figure out if something should be added.  Thanks!
