Release Notes


Welcome to AvalonDock 1.2

What's new
  • Fixed a critical issue introduced with a patch

Please note that from this release source code can be downloaded from the 'Source Code' section only (use SVN, VS Team Explorer etc). Uploading the sources via HTTP takes so loooong! :)

Version 1.2 has many more features than version 1.1 and internally has many changes. Find further info on version 1.2 from my blog (

Thanks to all for the great feedbacks and thanks to Juergen1969 that joined the AvalonDock team last week.

Documentaion and Tutorials
I posted on my blog a tutorial introducing AvalonDock.
You can find it at will help!

For integration on WPF Composite Client here you can find some infos on DocumentsSource property

Your suggestions will be much appreciated.

If you find a bug please ensure you are using the latest version available and try to explain how to reproduce it with as much details as possible.

Upgrading to .NET 3.5 SP1 is strictly recommended, especially under Vista.

Installation Notes
Setup installs AvalonDock under VS2005/VS2008.
  • VS2005 - To properly install AvalonDock into VS2005 toolbox you should have already installed the ToolboxControlsInstaller (TCI) which is included as a redistributable package in the VS2005 SDK ( If you don't want to install TCI, create a tab in the toolbox, and add AvalonDock controls adding a reference to AvalonDock.dll assembly.
  • VS2008 - Under VS2008 nothing to do is required because TCI is installed by default, so you should find a toolbox tab named "AvalonDock" containing AvalonDock controls.

Skin & Themes
If you created a skin/theme for AvalonDock and wish to share it with the community please contact me and I will pack it with the distribution.

Great library.

Good control for OSS. Feature rich and a good base to work from.

Very good stuff here! Works great. Does take a bit (little bit) of work to figure out how all the pieces work, but hey, were programmers that is what we do. Thanks for the great tool!

This is an excellent library. It quickly and easily provides a lot of functionality with very little effort.

It seems that this version is not working properly, a simple Visibility="Collapsed" in the xaml file is not working properly
