I am using the docking manager to show a "alerts and messages" content. This content has a grid which is bound to a collection. Whenever I add an item to the collection that stores the alerts it gets added to the list of errors in the UI.

The default state of this content is DockingManager.State="AutoHidden".

Hence whenever I add an alert to this I want the docking manager to Dock for few seconds and then autohide. Something like the Builderrors in the Visual Studio.

Any help is appreciated.

Hi Chiranthan,

Thanks for using Syncfusion products.

We have created a simple sample to illustrate To show/Hide the AutoHidden window in DockingManager which you can download below.

In this sample, we have used the “SelectTab” method to Show the Auto-hidden window and “AutoHideTab” method to Hide an Auto-hidden window.

Please let us know if the sample helps.
