ToolWindowContainer minimum width

Docking/MDI for WPF Forum

I've used SplitContainer with DockSite.ControlSize="250,500" to set the size of the tool windows. I have so far been unable to set the minimum size of tool windows inside a container. I don't want the user to be able to set the width to less than 200.

How can I accomplish this?

Sorry that isn't an option at this time yet. We have it on the TODO list.

If it's something you require immediately, we could possibly be contracted to build it for you:

Can you provide an update if this feature was added to the new release?

And is there a way to set the width of a ToolWindow? I am able to set the Width, it does take effect, however it doesn't render properly. i.e. it leaves lot of empty space around it.

Minimum sizes have not been added yet. However as mentioned above the DockSite.ControlSize attached property can set initial sizes. It is described in the documenation topic: "Docking & MDI Docking Window Features / Lifecycle and Docking Management".

You should never set any Width, MinWidth, etc. properties on the ToolWindow controls as that will prevent dynamic layout.

The latest build of this product (v24.1.2) was released 2 months ago, which was after the last post in this thread.
