Hi, im using the ToolWindowsTabStripPlacement="Top" to show the available panels tab on top.

Using this, the panel group is displayed on top of the tabs. To me, the oposite would be more logicial since the tab selection affects which panel is displayed.

With this design it seems like the tabs are part of the currently active group:

Hi Eric,

We can't really do what you suggested since the ToolWindowContainer is the control that has the title bar in it and there is an AdvancedTabControl nested within that UI that has the tab-oriented UI.  The suggestion would require the title bar being inside of the tab control instead.

Even if it was technically feasible, I think it would lead to some odd UI since the draggable title would be within the tab content area, yet would drag the whole tab control.
