Hi!

will you offer some of the well known features of document handling from within VS2008, like "Split", "New Horizontal Tab Group" or "New Vertical Tab Group"?

We still need to add context menus in a couple areas. However our implementation of tabbed MDI is slightly different than Visual Studio's in that it's more like normal tool window docking and you can create a hierarchy of documents in various directions, not just in one direction like in Visual Studio.

What context menu options would you like to see on documents in light of this?

okay, when asking about my demands, here I go:

Split Horizontal
Split Vertical
Remove Split

New Horizontal Tab Group
New Vertical Tab Group
Move to Previous Tab Group

And it should be possible to localize those menu items and use the functionality using API calls as well.

Let's see, how many whishes will get granted :-)

Could you go into a bit more detail on the differences between the items in the first and second groups?

Also, all our UI strings are fully customizable. It may be in the build you have but we also just added a String Resource Browser that lets you easily build the code to customize/localize individual strings for a product.

the first goup of commands:
Split Horizontal
Split Vertical
Will split an existing document horizontally or vertically but not adding any new document windows or tabs or groups or anything. Simply splitting an existing window and allowing to scroll to the same document with two scrollbars.

And the second group of commands:
New Horizontal Tab Group
New Vertical Tab Group
Move to Previous Tab Group
Will make a new tab group for the selected document and move it into this new group. Exactly like VS2008 does.

I really have to state: you have done a very good job thus far. Great!

Thanks Matthias,

The first group you describe is really more control oriented, and out of our hands. For instance our SyntaxEditor control supports splitting so you can customize the context menu when you have child controls for a window that supports splitting. But for TextBoxes, etc., we aren't able to do anything there.

We've added the context menus now for tabbed MDI. You now can create new horizontal/vertical tab groups, and move to next/previous ones in tabbed MDI via the context menu options.

This will be in the next build.
