when i close a certain toolwindow (in code) by using the .close function and I want to get it back by using the .Open function.

Than it is positioned I think at the back of the mdi document tree.
Is it possible to place it at a certain position??

Hi Arthur,

We don't currently have a method you can call to open it in a specific location in the MDI hosts. But given a ToolWindow, you may be able to get the TabbedMdiContainer ancestor and manually move the ToolWindow to the correct index (via the TabbedMdiContainer.Items collection).

In the upcoming 2009.2 release, we have added tracking to the Tabbed MDI area. So if you close a document and reopen it, then it will be placed in the same location is was previously in.

Does this also apply to DockSite/ToolWindowContainer/ToolWindow?

Yes tool windows have always restored back to their previous location after being opened somewhere in the past.
