So instead of having a one close button at the far right of the tab strip, you'd then have a close button on each tab header (like the tabstrip on Google Chrome).

Possible?

Hello James,

Thank you for contacting us.

You can achieve that by applying a custom theme to the Docking control.
Please find the attached file in which this is illustrated. Please mind for the "NOTE:" comments which will guide you through the changes made.

If you have further questions please feel free to contact us again.

That's fantastic and I'm sure it is exactly what I'd like, but unfortunately when I try to open the solution I get a message saying that it was created in a newer version of VS. I'm currently using VS2008, is there any chance you could save it in a format compatible with VS2008 please?

Thanks in advance.

Sorry to be a pain, but I'm still having trouble incorporating this into my application. One trouble is that I believe the solution you provided is a Silverlight solution, where as my application is WPF.

The other problem I'm having is I'm trying to twist the theme you've provided into a control template, purely because all the theming as such will be done with another resource dictionary. Is this possible?

Hi James Ludlow,

Thank you for submiting your concerns on RadDocking.

The application sent is a WPF application, you will notice that is opens up in a Window and not in the browser. 

If you would like to use the theme which we sent together with another resource dictionary, the way to go is to take your custom theme in a separate Class Library project. The Class should  inherit the Telerik Theme class. You can merge both resource dictionaries in a separate file using MergedResourceDictionaries and use that file as Source for your custom theme class.

Please let me know if you have any difficulties creating your custom theme as a separate project. We are ready to assist you.
