DocumentWindow Title Length

Docking/MDI for WPF Forum

Posted 13 years ago by Mick
Is there a way to prevent the length of the tab name being shortened when it's too long?

Here is Access 2010 and a sample app (Actipro) side by side.

Thank you,

Hi Mick,

Unfortunately, the only way to accomplish that would be to customize the Style/ControlTemplate for the docking windows when displayed in the tabbed MDI. You can take the default Styles/ControlTemplates and tweak them to remove the DocumentTitleConverter.

We've marked down a TODO item to see about making this more customizable in the future.

Dear sir,

We have a problem with the docking window title. I belive we are using the ActiproSoftware.Docking.Wpf v13.1.581.0.

In this version as we noticed the long titles of docking windows are not shrinked which was the case in some earlier version. 

So for example if a title of a document window is "A very very very long title for document" to show something like "A very very..."

How could i achive such behaviour?

Hi Clemens,

It looks like a change in build 581 altered this from working.  We're going to revert that change for the next maintenance release.

The latest build of this product (v24.1.2) was released 2 months ago, which was after the last post in this thread.
