Keyboard access to Document window

Docking/MDI for WPF Forum

I would like to access to document window by keyboard. (Shortcut key)

Is there any prepared shortcut key? Or is there any way to set it?

For example,

3 document windows are opening (window 1/2/3), and window-1 is active.

I would like to active window-3 by keyboard.

If document window 1 currently has focus then you can press Ctrl+3 to jump to the third tab, assuming it is document window 3 in your setup.  Ctrl+[number] tab jumping works within any tabbed MDI container or tool window container.

Other than that, you can use Ctrl+Tab to show the switcher and move to a specific document window.

Or you can handle a key yourself and call the Activate() method on the desired target document window to focus.

Thank you for replying.

I got it.

The latest build of this product (v24.1.2) was released 2 months ago, which was after the last post in this thread.
