Sorry for the delay in getting back to you.

You can able to customize the TabStyle of DockingManager using the attached property DocumentTabStyle. We have created a simple sample similar to your requirement. Please refer to the sample for your reference.

Thank you for the reply.

I have one more question.

When DockingManager.State = Float,

Is it possible to have the ContextMenu mode set to Dock As Tabbed Document by double-clicking?

Currently, double-clicking sets it to Dock mode.

Best Regards,
