Blend Design Time support with MVVM

Docking/MDI for WPF Forum

I am using the Cinch Framework that allows me to attach ViewModels at design time in Expression Blend 4. When I populate the DockSite.DocumentWindows with (design-time) ViewModels I only see the empty DockSite control in the designer. I would expect the tab control to show a tab for each viewmodel.

I have no problem to populate any listbox or other conrol through databinding at design time with this technique, so it seems this is something actipro control internal.

Is there any way to achieve design time support with the DocumentWindows collection (mvvm)?

Hi Joachim,

Unfortunately, not at this time. The DocumentWindows and ToolWindows need to be explicitly opened, which can be anywhere in the DockSite (including in floating windows).
