how about some glass?

Docking/MDI for WPF Forum

speaking of an DockSite which either sits directly inside a GlassWindow or in the fill-area of an surrounding DockPanel which is direct content of a GlassWindow:

I wonder if it would be possible to show as much glass as possible? It would have to recognize auto hide tabs, fixed tabs (if any) in non-workspace mode, or even the right space near to document tabs (and ideally working with nested docksites directly sitting inside ToolWindows).

Thinking about it: This could require some smart "HideToolWindowTitlesWhenNotNeeded" property: For example take the "Tool Window Inner-Fill QuickStart" and close toolwindows 1,2,6,7: Since the primary fill area now only consists of one single toolwindowcontainer, which already shows the current tab very well, the title is only wasting space (and would
punctuate glass).

BTW: Inspired by Opera.

Hi Markus,

Thanks for the post, we'll mark down the idea for possible consideration. As a side note, if you modify all the templates of our controls and have a glass background via a GlassWindow, you could probably achieve a lot of this yourself.
