Is there an "out of the box" way to create a tab control that works similar to the one in the Visual Studio 2010 IDE?

I want to have a Close "X" on each tab page and a button at the end to list all of the tabs. I would also like to be able to undock the tabs and drag to multiple monitors.

Have you looked on Codeplex for code that does it? BTW, VS2010's UI was done with WPF. It should be fairly simple to duplicate the functionality.

I would say, AvalonDock (see my Answer). And it is not simple to duplicate such functionality, I think.
Tabbed interface in not a problem, this is a regular control TabControl.

I think you're asking about docking interface like in Visual Studio, not just a tabbed part of it. The closest thing I know is AvalonDock for WPF:[^].
