I have a situation in which I have a SINGLE piece of content which I want to dock tool windows around.  I'm trying to generate that interface and hitting problems. 

I can use the NoHeader=true to get rid of the chrome, but then conent is put into docked window without a header (it's not the spanning content that a document is). 

I can mark that as a DockState=Document, but then it ignores the NoHeader setting and gives me a header.

How do I generate a content that is not tabbed in the center of the docking operation?

Hi Mike,

Thank you for using Syncfusion products.

NoHeader attached property of SfDockingManager is used to hide header of window in Dock State. We can hide header panel of window in Document state by collapsing the header elements in DocumentContainer, which can be retrieved by traversing the visual tree. To restrict switching a window to Document state, set CanDocument attached property to false. You can download the sample for the same from the following link:

Sample: DockingManager_NoHeader

Please let us know more details about the requirement if we have misunderstood your query.
