Hi,
Is there a way of changing a tabbed MDI host such that it displays the document window tabs on the left (or right) of workspace? The TabPlacement property only offers Top/Bottom.

Thanks,
aled.

Hi Aled,

Sorry, but the Left/Right tab placements are not currently supported.

OK. Would I be right in saying that there is no way by applying styles/templates to alter the appearance?

Hi Aled,

It could certainly be done with a custom Style/ControlTemplate, but you may not be able to reuse our DockingWindowTabPanel. This provides the overflow/scrolling features that are available, so you'd have to manually recreate that or live without those features.

There's a chance you can simply set a LayoutTransform on the panel that rotates it 90 degrees, but there may be issues with this.
