document window using header

Docking/MDI for WPF Forum

I created a custom DocumentWindow which defines the header to include a save button like the example in the QuickStarts Custom Docking Windows. I do a programmatic creation of this custom window. I have constructors that call the base DocumentWindow constructors.
When I call the base DocumentWindow(dockSite, ...). The Header property is null.
If I just instantiate with a no arg constructor, the Header is not null, but then I can't set the window's DockSite. What am I doing wrong?

Or is there a better way of doing this?

Hi Mary,

It's hard to tell without seeing how you have things setup. You may not be calling InitializeComponent in the constructor that does not work.

If you can please put together a small sample project and email it over to our support address we can take a closer look.

The problem was the InitializeComponent() not being called. I just assumed that it would be called in by the base constructor.
Thanks for your help.
