Independent DockingManager after undocking DocumentContent

May 22, 2012 at 2:40 AM

I want be able to undoc DocumetContent to new application's window (of the same type as application's main window) with own DocumentManager. I want to implement the same functionality as Chrome or Firefox. If in the Chrome web browser the doc tab is undocked it will be inserted to a new instance of Chrome with identical look, menu and hierarchical structure as the source instance. Then if the first window is closed the second one will be still functional.

In my case all windows would run under the same application object.

Please, is this possible with AvalonDock 2?

No, it's not possible. Implementing such feature would mean redesigning AvalonDock completely. I suggest you to start from a standard tabcontrol giving it dragging behavior.
