I need a configurable layout where the ToolWindows are in a grid format with say 2 columns. They are all visible, not tabbed. I need to be able to drag the windows within the grid to reorder and position them.

Is this functionality possible with your WPF Docking product? This is not typical Visual Studio docking functionality, but your product looks very flexible so I was hoping it could provide this grid format layout.

Thanks.
Greg

You may be able to achieve this with tool window inner-fill mode. Is that what you mean? There is a sample in the Sample Browser of that.

Inner-fill mode looks close to what I want. How configurable is the docking UI? Is it possible to turn off tabbing so that windows are arranged but not tabbed? Thanks for the quick response.

Yes you can set DockSite.CanToolWindowsAttached to be false, preventing them from "tabbing" by the end user.
