Visual Studio Dock Control
Supports the ability to accurately recreate the Visual Studio docking experience including layout persistence, floating windows, and HWind Support.
Customizable Docking Indicators
Supports visual indicators that demonstrate where a dockable item will snap into place.
Content Pane Navigator
Supports any navigation screen that allows for quick navigation with previews between different content panes.
Allows for the creation of a tabbed area that mimics a tabbed MDI experience.
Hidden panes stay out of the way until users mouse over them, and then they animate into view on mouse over, click, activation, or by command where users can pin them to keep them visible.
Resize Content with Splitters
Docked content panes can easily be resized by dragging one edge to accommodate the information being presented.
Methods to save a layout to XML and then load it back into the docking control enable presenting users with their preferred layout when your application restarts.
Supports hosting HWnds meaning legacy Windows Forms controls can be hosted in this WPF docking experience.
