have a look at this code located in DockablePaneStyle.xaml, lines 137++

<Button DockPanel.Dock="Right" Width="15" Height="15" Style="{StaticResource PaneHeaderCommandStyle}" Command="ad:DockablePaneCommands.Close"

                                   Visibility="{Binding RelativeSource={RelativeSource TemplatedParent},

                                   Path=SelectedItem.IsCloseable, Converter={x:Static ad:Converters.BoolToVisibilityConverter}}"

                                   ToolTip="{x:Static adRes:Resources.DockablePaneCommands_Close}">


                                   <ad:ImageEx Source="Images\PinClose.png" Width="13" />



Same code at lines 183+ in DocumentPaneStyle.xaml

Hope it helps !

Thanks Bernad,

I set Visibility="Hidden" to the buttons. It disappears while running in Win XP.

In Windows 7, it is still visible and enabled.

Do I need to change any other portion?

Could you check .Net versions running on your computers?

Also try Hidden vs Collapsed, see details here:
