How can i set attributes of the floating window. I'd like to set the WindowStyle to 'none' and the AllowsTransparency to "True".

Thanks.

Sean,

Sorry but right now there isn't a way to apply those settings. What were you trying to accomplish by doing those?

I wanted the floating window to have a slick rounded-corner window chrome without a title bar.

(And thanks for the quick reply!)

Sean,

We'll add a TODO item to possibly add a Style property that would be applied to the rafting windows. Right now you can't just create a blanket Style and put it in the resources for them since the RaftingWindow class is internal to our assembly.

Sean,

Actually what we ended up doing was adding a protected virtual CreateRaftingWindow method to DockSite. You can call the base method, see if the return value is a Window, and if so, set the properties you mentioned. This will be in the next maintenance release. Sound good?

Sounds good. Is that in the 4.5.0484?
