Docking guides (outer ones) not able to use

Docking/MDI for WPF Forum

Posted 1 year ago by Daniel
Version: 22.1.4


I have programmatically done everything needed to add Documents to a layout, but I have not been able to see the Outer guides at all.

I tried specifiyng with the DockGuideKinds with the DockSite.WindowsDragOver event, but it just comes up invisible.

SupportedGuideKinds is telling me it's not available, but I'd like to know why or how I might support this maybe by changing my layout a bit?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Daniel,

Documents can only use inner guides since they are restricted to within tabbed MDI containers.  Whereas tool windows can use outer guides, as they can dock anywhere.  Our WindowsDragOver event's arguments tell you the default guides that are allowed and you can only restrict (not add to) them from there.  That's why things are behaving as you see.  If you wish to use outer guides then you'd need to use tool windows.

That's unfortunate. I was ready to buy if that was adjustable.

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