I have an Application with a Dockingmanager and some docked windows.
After turning on AutoHide with the unpin button, the autohidden panels width is too small.
It should have nearly the same width as in docked state.
How can I change width of an AutoHide panel?

Hi Elmar,

Thank you for contacting Syncfusion support.

We have prepared the sample that tries to meet your requirement. In this sample, we have set the DesiredWidthInDockedMode for the Docking child to open the AutoHidePanel in the specified width. Initially, AutoHidePanel opens on the same width as the DockWindow. After AutoHide Panel is loaded, panel width will be the specified size, and not based on the DockWindow. You can download the sample from the following location.

Hi Ashok Kumar,

this solves my problem, thanks.
The DesiredWidthInDockedMode was set to only "50"
