How can I add an icon to the DocumentWindow tab?

What I need to do is have an icon on the DocumentWindow tab - for example a + sign - such that if the user clicks on it it will add another DocumentWindow.

Is this type of behaviour supported?

You can use the Image property but be sure to have DockManager.TabbedMdiTabImagesVisible set to true. Also there is a ContextImage on the DocumentWindow class.

Those will show images however there isn't a way now to know if a user clicks on it.

Can we add a button to the tab instead of an icon?

Is this functionality that might be added in future releases?

At this time we don't have any plans to add buttons to the tabs.
