How to determine if ToolWindows are docked with tabs?

Docking/MDI for Windows Forms Forum

I want to hide the titlebar of my ToolWindows if they are docked in such a way that tabs are displaying - i.e. when two or more toolwindows are grouped together. I think it is redundant to show the titlebar since the tab already displays an appropriate name.

I am using the DockManager_ToolWindowDragged even to iterate through all the ToolWindows in order to set the HasTitleBar property but I cannot find any way to determine if the toolwindow is grouped into tabs with other toolwindows - how do I determine this?

If the parent ToolWindowContainer (ToolWindow.ToolWindowContainer) has more tool window in it, they are tabbed. Note that not all states use a ToolWindowContainer so do a null check before looking at it.

That works quite well, thanks.
The latest build of this product (v24.1.0) was released 4 months ago, which was after the last post in this thread.
