As I’ve mentioned in my previous post, I’ve decided to use this blog to talk about topics besides Accessibility. I’ve just recently taken ownership of window docking in Visual Studio, including tool windows and files opened in the editor space.
In VS 2002, 2003 (Everett), and Whidbey Alpha, window docking includes tool window docking, undocking, auto-hiding, floating, and so forth. In Whidbey Alpha, we’ve introduced docking targets. These targets allow users to quickly figure out how to drag and drop tool windows to new locations.
Feel free to leave comments here on your thoughts about our window docking model, especially any bugs or issues that have bothered you in past releases.
