The example projects in the source code are great. They have helped me out a lot.
But the MVVM one does everything in XAML.
Most of us want a "Visual Studio" style application. (Where you can open an empty shell and then add content and anchorables.)
I would love to see an MVVM example that starts with only a menu bar, and then uses options to add content, a Right and a Bottom window.
The key here though, is that each window has to be able to be able to press the X (that's hide right?) and then re-open it again (like solution explorer). (I am not saying it should remember state (i.e. expanded nodes) between the X press (Hide) and
the re-open. But it should be the same data in the window.)
There are tons of "hard to figure out" things with an app like this.
- How do you setup a default on where to dock an anchorable (ie Solution Explorer should default to the right and File Search to the bottom)
- How do you set the default width or height of a new anchorable (they default to very very small widths or heights)
- How do you set the default AutoHide sizes?
Avalon Dock is Fantastic! I love it. And I know you do this service to the community, and I am so grateful for it.
I think an example like this would cut down on the number of questions you get.
