Standard MDI Difference - upgrading from 4.5.487 to 9.1.503

Docking/MDI for WPF Forum

Version: 9.1.0503
We're currently using Standard MDI and are forcing our DocumentWindows to be Maximized. The XAML for the StandardMdiHost follows along with the code that is invoked whenever we activate a new DocumentWindow. In 4.5.487, our DocumentWindows had just a Close button. In 9.1.503, I'm seeing both a Restore button and a Close button. What do I need to do to get rid of the Restore button - we're trying to force the DocumentWindow to stay maximized.

        <!--Document Workspace-->
        <docking:Workspace Name="workSpace" AutomationProperties.AutomationId="workSpace">
          <docking:StandardMdiHost Name="standardMdiHost" WindowsHaveMinimizeButtons="False" AutomationProperties.AutomationId="standardMdiHost"
              <Style TargetType="docking:WindowControl">
                <Setter Property="HasRestoreButton" Value="False"/>
                <Setter Property="HasMaximizeButton" Value="False"/>
                <Setter Property="ResizeMode" Value="NoResize"/>
                <Setter Property="HasDropShadow" Value="False"/>

          //  Activate the window.
          StandardMdiHost.SetStandardMdiWindowState(internalWindow, WindowState.Maximized);

In the recent builds, we added support for magnetism to the standard MDI. By doing this they use a new StandardMdiWindowControl (inherits WindowControl) in the DocumentWindow template for standard MDI. So just change your style to target StandardMdiWindowControl instead and it should work.
