Show a navigation window for navigating between panes when the user presses Ctrl+tab. RadDock for WinForms has such feature: https://docs.telerik.com/devtools/winforms/dock/architecture-and-features/quick-navigator
What you have two separate RadDocking controls it should be possible to drag a Pane from the first control into the other one.
Currently the small arrow which is used to display the menu is not shown in the ToolWindow's header even when a single pane is shown in the window.
A way of setting the pane order in autohidearea, to keep the order when changing IsPinned state.
Currently when ScaleTransform is used ether on the RadDocking control or its container the compasses/drop cues which are shown when docking a RadPane instance have incorrect scaling and are placed incorrectly. By design the control's scaling is determined by the scaling of the OS environment.
Just like in Visual Studio, a floating pane, which I want to dock (for example to the bottom), can either take the whole width or just the width that is left. For example: At start, the panes in the bottom does not consume the whole window width. After undocking the panes and docking them back, the compass only shows me an option to dock the panes while consuming the whole width. I have no option to return to the original state (like in Start.png). The only way to return to that state is undock and re-dock the right pane, and then dock and re-dock the left pane. Visual Studio has this feature (see image).
By design in the current version of RadDocking when a hidden RadPane instance in a RadPaneGroup is made visible by changing the IsHiddden property of that pane to False, that RadPane is set to be SelectedItem in the group. Make it possible to disable this functionality. This way the old selected RadPane in that RadPaneGroup will be persisted.
Return undocked pane to its previous docked state when double click on its Header.
Add shortcuts like: - close a pane by mousewheel click on the tab - close the active pane by keyboard shortcut (e.g. Ctrl + W) - switch active pane by Ctrl + Tab
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.
Adding active state will make possible to customize the Template/Style of the active Pane in the control.
Make it possible to float, maximize and restore the Pane to its previously docked position. As a user I want to be able to maximize docked Panes when I double click their Headers and restore them to their docked state when I double click the Header of the floating Pane so that it is easier for me to maximize a Pane with less mouse interaction.
As a developer using the RadDocking control, I want to be able to make the Popups of the AutoHideAreas non-transparent without overriding the whole theme.
Expose information about the used Compass when docking a Pane.
Currently the arrow buttons appear only when the TabStripPlacement is set to top.
Make it possible to float unpinned Pane by dragging them from the AutoHideArea.
Make it possible to dock panes inside and outside of the DocumetnHost via it's compasses
As a <role> I want <ability> so that <benefit>.
Add better layout-related events for the Docking control like PreviewPaneStateChanged and improved the arguments of the PaneStateChanged event. Also add events for resizing of a SplitContainer, moving a ToolWindow, etc.
