Our UI designers have decided that we must build a UI that a deck of cards but each card might be its own independent docking manager. Any window undocked from a card should only be able to redock with its original owner. Can Syncfusion's Dock Manager support this? Can multiple Dock Managers co-exist? My experiments thus far have been less than successful in that they seem to result in a large number of exceptions being thrown in both design mode and at runtime.

Hi Richard,

Thanks for the evaluating Syncfusion Tools.WPF.

Syncfusion WPF Docking Manager architecture has been designed in very convenient way. We can host any number of DockingManager in the single application. All the docking manager will work independently. Please see the attached sample for more idea. We have created two docking manager in the single window. Like that you can host any number of docking manager.

I hope this sample will meet your requirement.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks for the interest in the Syncfusion products.

I understand the multiple docking managers, but I'm missing dockable-windows (these are windows which are showing in die middle of the document and looks like a tab).
I hope you know what i want.

Is there any control or tool which afford my wish?

Hi Sinamine,

I hope you are expecting Tabbed Document Interface concept which is present in VS2005. As per the current version of WPF Docking Manager we couldn't create TDI windows. Next version of the Tools.WPF will contain TDI control which can be host in any type of control such as DockingManager and Ribbon.

I hope I am right. If not, please let me know your requirement with detailed information.

Thanks for the interest in Syncfusion products.
