Question about torn-off toolwindow behaviour

Docking/MDI for WPF Forum

When I tear off a toolwindow it is currently top-most to the window it is torn from, which works great. However I would like to make it on top of other windows as well, and also to allow it to be focused without it bringing it's parent window into focus at the same time. I couldn't find options to do these things in the existing API. Any ideas?

Hi Jeremy,

You can't do that right now however we've added a protected virtual CreateRaftingWindow method to the next maintenance release that you can override. In your override, see if the base call returns a Window (it may not always be) and if so, set TopMost = true. That should do it for you.
