Hello,
I have a TDI layout where the documents are UserControls.
The UserControl contains a DockSite with 2 toolwindows (a code window and design window similar to Visual Studio).

When then code toolwindow have the focus and user presses CTRL+TAB a switcher is shown allowing the user to switch between the code and design windows instead of between document tabs.

If the main window is focused and the user presses CTRL+TAB there's no problem at all.

So my question is, how can I show the main window switcher instead of the UserControl switcher.

Thanks in advance,
Miky.

Hi Miky,

Did you try to set the DockSite.Switcher on the nested DockSites to be "{x:Null}" in your XAML for them?

Thank you for your reply,
Yes I have already tried to set the nested DockSite.Switcher to {x:Null} and what i get is that no switcher is shown at all when an inner control has the focus and I press CTRL+TAB

Thanks again,
Miky

Miky,

Could you make a simple sample project that shows the issue, ZIP it up, and email it over? That way we can have a look. Please don't include any .exe files in your ZIP. Thanks!

Hi Miky,

Thanks, we've updated the code for the WPF Studio 2010.1 release that just came out so that if you specifically set the nested DockSite's Switcher="{x:Null}" in XAML then your scenario will work.
