I have a DockingManager for a Tabbed Document Interface.


I'm using Children.Add(...) to programmatically add new tabs to the DockingManager. The new tabs appear to the left of the existing tabs, but I want them to be added to the end (right) of the existing tabs.

How can I get that?

Currently there is no direct way in DockingManager to do this, But you can able to accomplish this by retrieving DocumentContainer object from DockingManager using VisualUtils.FindDescendant() and set its AddTabDocumentAtLast = true before adding the children’s to Children collection of DockingManager , Please find the sample the attached sample for more idea.

Please let us know if you have any queries,

Has this issue been addressed since then?
We haven't been able to get the example to work.

Hi Branden,

Thank you for using Syncfusion products.

The reported issue "AddTabDocumentAtLast is not working properly" is already fixed in our Essential Studio version. You can either upgrade to this version or use SetDocumentTabOrderIndex attached property to resolve this issue. SetDocumentTabOrderIndex property is used to set the index of a tab in DocumentContainer. We have prepared a sample for the same and you can download it from the following link:

Sample: DocumentTabAtLast
