In our application, we load documents within the TabbedMdiHost. We wanted the possibilty to have our documents as floating windows, so we use ToolWindows instead of DocumentWindow and set the state to Document while loading.

This almost sastify our needs, but we also want to be able to directly drag the Toolwindow state into floating state without first setting the document manually to Float.
This would be the same behaviour as ToolWindows in Dockable state.
Is there any built-in solution?

Hi Alexandre,

Great news for you, we are about to launch WPF Studio 2009.2 any day now and it has floating document support just like in Visual Studio 2010. So with the new updates you'll be able to have document windows that can be dragged from the MDI area and floated. You won't need to use tool windows any more for your scenario.
