When a user control is in tabbed/document mode and the user double clicks on the tab, it will force the user control into float.  Is there a way to disable this feature?

Hi Henry,

Thank you for contacting the Syncfusion Support, 
We can disable the behavior of floating the document on double click by EnableDocumentToFloatOnDoubleClick property of DockingManager. This property is available from Version. You can achieve your requirement by setting EnableDocumentToFloatOnDoubleClick as false. The same has been illustrated in the following code snippet:


//The following code snippet will demonstrates the usage of EnableDocumentToFloatOnDoubleClick property of DockingManager.

<syncfusion:DockingManager UseDocumentContainer="True" EnableDocumentToFloatOnDoubleClick="False" >

            <ContentControl syncfusion:DockingManager.State="Document"


            <ContentControl syncfusion:DockingManager.State="Document"


And we have prepared the sample that demonstrates the same , kindly download from the following link:

Kindly try our solution and let us know if it is helpful for you,
Vijayalakshmi V.R.

I upgraded to version 13.1451.0.21 and EnableDocumentToFloatOnDoubleClick is not available on the dockingmanager
