DocumentWindow.Activate() and TabOverflowBehavior

Docking/MDI for WPF Forum

I love the new TabbedMdiHost.TabOverflowBehavior property. However, when I call DocumentWindow.Activate() on a DocumentWindow which has been scrolled off, I expected it to be brought into view, but it was not.

Is this an oversight? Or is there some built in mechanism I need to use?

Correction. It appears that calling Activate() on a non-active Window that has been scrolled off works. What does not work is calling Activate() on the already Active() Window. It stays scrolled off.

I wonder, what should it do? And, is there a way to scroll it into view? Should I investigate the standard TabControl behaviors?

Hi Tom,

You are correct. Activating a window would not scroll it's tab into view, if it was already selected. We've updated the code for the next maintenance release to ensure the selected tab is visible when it receives the keyboard focus, which occurs when the window is activated.
