SandDock Window manager
SandDock is our award-winning window management software that enables dockable window and tabbed document functionality in applications that use it. The version for Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) is able to leverage new technology to provide more visual features than its Windows Forms counterpart, such as smoothly animated transitions and 3D window switching - like the Flip-3D feature from Microsoft Windows Vista.
Broadly designed to mimic the user interface capabilities of Visual Studio 2005, by plugging SandDock into your application you can forget about the intricacies of window layout - instead, provide your windows to SandDock and let it present them with all the tools your users need for customization of the working area. Tool windows become dockable, sticking to the sides of your window in hierarchies chosen visually by the user, or they can be floated above your main window. Documents are presented in a tabbed fashion, with split views for easy comparison between content, or in a traditiona multiple document interface (MDI) layout.
