Visual Studio 2010 has a helper for when moving or tiling document windows. Is this possible with the WPF GUI tools library?

Hi Malcolm Davey,


Sorry for the delay in getting back to you.


You have requested to know whether a document could be moved or dragged like in Visual Studio. This is possible using our Syncfusion control namely ‘DockingManager’ control. This could be achieved by using its property ‘IsVS2010DraggingEnabled’ and its property value should be set to true. Using this you can drag your document and make it float separately and you can see dock providers to dock it back in desired place.


Please find the sample program and video file attached with this update.


Hope we have fulfilled your requirement.  Please let us know if you have any other queries.




P. Dinesh Kumar

Thanks for your feed back. I understand there is a general drag drop helper, but what I'm interested in this that in Visual Studio 2010, there is a difference to this between "document" windows and other toolbar/windows. The others can be pinned and hidden etc, but the document windows can only be split horizonally or vertically, or floated, or placed tabbed next to another document, and the "helper" is different, and doesn't have the options at the side.
I have looked at a few of the samples, but none of them behave the same way as Visual Studio 2010.
I did try modifying a sample, but none did what Visual Studio did exactly - it seemed to treat the "document" window like any other window.
