Integrating Docking/MDI with Navigation

What would be your recommendation on how to integrate the Navigation control with the Docking/MDI package? For example, if the "RibbonWindow with Docking" sample app were to have a Navigation control on the left rather than the "ToolBox" - what container should be used?

It's hard to say without knowing what you want to do functionality wise and what your app is for.

Several options I can think of are:
1) Have a DockPanel with the NavigationBar docked left and DockSite filling the content area.
2) Put the NavigationBar in a ToolWindow that is docked or auto-hidden on the left.
3) Do #2 but make it a fixed tool window like in our "Fixed Tool Window" QuickStart. Maybe this is the best for you?
