Hello Ali,

Sadly i don't really understand what you want to accomplish here, can you please post some screenshots with the desired behavior?

Hello ali,

If you want to do this from the designer, please take a look at the attached screenshot for the necessary steps.

If you prefer doing it from code, please take a look at the following sample:
private void SetTextAlignment(ToolTabStrip toolTabStrip, System.Drawing.ContentAlignment alignment)
{
    var dockLayout = toolTabStrip.SplitPanelElement.Children[2] as DockLayoutPanel;
    var captionElement = dockLayout.Children[0] as ToolWindowCaptionElement;
    dockLayout = captionElement.Children[2] as DockLayoutPanel;
    var textPrimitive = dockLayout.Children[3] as TextPrimitive;
 
    textPrimitive.TextAlignment = alignment;
}

Hope this helps, if you have any other questions or comments, please let me know,

Best Regards,

Hi Guys,

There is an issue with the code here. It will be fine when initially seen, but if you try to drag the ToolWindow to a different position then the Text Alignment will reset back to the original value. I'd suggest a slightly different approach which will work for all dock positions (apart from floating).

Please consider the following

designer
namespace RadControlsWinFormsApp1
{
    partial class Form1
    {
        /// <summary>
        /// Required designer variable.
        /// </summary>
        private System.ComponentModel.IContainer components;
  
        /// <summary>
        /// Clean up any resources being used.
        /// </summary>
        /// <param name="disposing">true if managed resources should be disposed; otherwise, false.</param>
        protected override void Dispose(bool disposing)
        {
            if (disposing && (components != null))
            {
                components.Dispose();
            }
            base.Dispose(disposing);
        }
  
        #region Windows Form Designer generated code

I will also look at at floating state, and if I can address your question regarding the image. In the meantime, please let me know if you have any questions
