Docking: ToolWindow: Add Minimize\Restore\Maximize header buttons
Currently Minimize\Restore\Maximize buttons are not shown in the ToolWindow's header, so there are some inconveniences in use. For example, it's impossible to minimize tool windows easily.

As a temporary hack i created a custom GeneratedItemsFactory for the RadDocking as descriped in this post: https://www.telerik.com/forums/maximize-mimimize-floating-radpane . Than i create a custom ToolWindow and override the OnContextMenuOpening event and set my own menu with the new options Maximize and Minimize. Hacky, but works. And after 8 years my expectations for this feature are low ;)

public class ShownInTaskBarWindowsGeneratedItemsFactory : DefaultGeneratedItemsFactory
    {
        public override ToolWindow CreateToolWindow()
        {
            // var window = base.CreateToolWindow();
            
            var window = new MyToolWindow();
            window.SetResourceReference(Control.StyleProperty, "ToolWindowStyle");

            RadWindowInteropHelper.SetShowInTaskbar(window, true);
            window.SetBinding(RadWindowInteropHelper.TitleProperty, new Binding("Header") { Source = window });

            return window;
        }
    }

    public class MyToolWindow : ToolWindow
    {
        protected override void OnContextMenuOpening(ContextMenuEventArgs e)
        {
            var win = e.Source as ToolWindow;

            RadContextMenu menu = new RadContextMenu();

            var minimizeMenuItem = new RadMenuItem { Header = "Minimize", StaysOpenOnClick = false };
            minimizeMenuItem.Click += (sender, args) => win.WindowState = WindowState.Minimized;
            menu.Items.Add(minimizeMenuItem);
            var maximizeMenuItem = new RadMenuItem { Header = "Maximize", StaysOpenOnClick = false };
            maximizeMenuItem.Click += (sender, args) => win.WindowState = WindowState.Maximized;
            menu.Items.Add(maximizeMenuItem);

            RadContextMenu.SetContextMenu((FrameworkElement)e.OriginalSource, menu);
            menu.IsOpen = true;
        }

        protected override System.Windows.Controls.ContentControl GetWindowOwner()
        {
            return null;
        }
    }
