Hello,

I am using Actipro docking pane. How can I keyboard navigate to dock panel's small (PART_TitleBar) buttons (options, minimize, maximize, close).

I think the style that it uses is: <Style x:Key="{x:Type docking:ToolWindowContainer}" TargetType="docking:ToolWindowContainer">

Please help,

Thanks.

Hi Jon,

You can press the "Alt+-" keyboard shortcut to access the options menu for the tool window container.

"Windows+Up" will maximize a floating tool window (like any other window) and "Windows+Down" will restore when maximized.

Thanks for the reply.

Is there any way we can change the modifier keys to some other standard key! It feels very inflexible to use a certain key combination instead of the standard 'Tab / Shift+Tab' !

Hi Jon,

Sorry but no, those aren't configurable and aren't focusable buttons, so they don't support tabbing.  But you can still access the same functionality via the options menu that pops up with "Alt+-".  The design is the same as what Visual Studio does.
