INTRODUCTION AND RELEVANT INFORMATION:
I have a desktop application with a window that needs to display large amount of entry fields. Please take a look at below image:
As indicated on the image, controls in the red rectangle should be in main window, other ones can be shown when needed, using progressive disclosure/tabs/etc. I have used purple line to mark related groups of data.
I am using WPF and XAML to create GUI.
MY EFFORTS TO SOLVE THE PROBLEM:
I have tried to break that content into tabs, in order not to clutter the GUI.
I have placed controls from red rectangle into main window, docked them left and then added tab control next to the map. Everything else was placed into appropriate tabs ( groups marked with purple line on the above image ).
My problem is that layout can not be fully seen on small laptops despite "breaking" the window into tabs. Since the screen is divided into 3 columns map can not fit properly, it is just a thin vertical line.
I would like to ask here for help, in view of GUI redesign so it can fit into small laptop screens. I am not targeting tablets/phones.
Is this type of question on topic for this site?
IMPORTANT: I can provide detailed description of every field from the above mockup. I have mockups of the tabs as well (my own effort to solve the problem).
