You can find the answers to your questions in the support ticket that you have opened: Window tab strips changes at runtime
You can have a ToolWindow without a caption by setting the CalptionVisible
of its ToolTabStrip to false.
If you do not want to hide the ToolWindow, you can set appropriate AllowedDockState:
|private void Form1_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
| this.toolWindow1.AllowedDockState = AllowedDockState.Docked;
| ((ToolTabStrip)this.toolWindow1.TabStrip).CaptionVisible = false;
Currently, the second point of your scenario is not possible. However, we will support such scenario in Q2 2009 SP1.
If you have additional questions, feel free to contact me.
