Hello,

I'm setting DockSite.FloatingWindowShowInTaskBarMode to false.

When I minimize floating document window,

1. The window is displayed in taskbar, but I cannot see window preview.

  -->Is there any way to see window preview when set DockSite.FloatingWindowShowInTaskBarMode to false?

2. Minimized window title bar including 3 buttons (Minimize, Maximize, Close) is displayed in left bottom of screen, but those buttons does not work.

  --> Is it possible to work those buttons? Or is there any way to hide it?

Hello,

Thanks for reporting these issues.  We found and fixed what was causing the first issue.

For the second issue, it appears to be due to updates in v22.1 added to WindowChrome for Windows 11 snap layout menu support.  We found the problem and have fixed it as well.

Both updates will be in the next maintenance release.

Hello,

Thank you for replying.

I'd like to check it in our application before the next maintenance release.

Is it possible to send me preview version?

Hello,

Thank you for your support.

I have recieved the preview build and checked it.

I'm setting DockSite.FloatingWindowShowInTaskBarMode to false.

When I minimize floating document window,

1. The window is displayed in taskbar, but I cannot see window preview.

Minimized document window no longer appears in taskbar.

Only minimized window title bar appears at left bottom of screen.

--> Is it possible to show icon and title which is set to floating document window? (DockSite.FloatingWindowIcon, DockSite.FloatingWindowTitle)

2. Minimized window title bar including 3 buttons (Minimize, Maximize, Close) is displayed in left bottom of screen, but those buttons does not work.

Those buttons work fine.

Hello,

We will update the floating dock host title for the next maintenance release to include its primary document's Title property value.  That will  require some effort but will increase clarity from the Windows taskbar and Alt+Tab screens as to what a floating dock host's content is.
