Hi Dirk,

Can you clarify what exact UI part you are referring to and the MDI kind you are using?  The reason I ask is that tabbed MDI documents don't really have title bars.  Thanks!

DocumentWindows, I want to basically hide the headers / titles so only the active document window is visible to the user.

Hi Dirk,

You didn't mention which MDI kind you are using.  Do you use TabbedMdiHost or StandardMdiHost?

Hi Dirk,

There isn't a way to hide the TabbedMdiContainer tabs externally.  We do have an IsTabStripVisible property on them that is inherited from DockingWindowContainerBase, but that is set and updated internally and more for when ToolWindowContainer has a single tool window and the tabs need to hide.

Perhaps a better option for you if you want to hide the document chrome is to use standard (windowed) MDI instead and maximize the DocumentWindow with the StandardMdiHost.AreMaximizedWindowFramesVisible property set to false?
