DocumentManager - Show Open Windows Dialog

End-users can invoke this dialog by clicking the ‘Windows…’ item within a BarDockingMenuItem associated with this DocumentManager.

The dialog displays two columns for each document - Name and Path. The Name column displays Document captions (the BaseDocument.Caption property), the Path column displays their footers (the BaseDocument.Footer property).
