When a docking window has been set to AutoHide, is there a way to force the autohide animation to start regardless of where the cursor is, causing the docked window to "slide" to the hidden state? -Jim

Hi Jim, The DockingManager has an ActivateControl() method that can be used for this purpose. Please refer to the following Tools KB article - http://www.syncfusion.com/KB/Tools/Tools_c35c.asp#q572q Prakash

Jim, Sorry, but I just realized that you were asking about a way to hide/slide-out an autohidden control and not show it. This feature was very recently added to the docking windows framework, and starting with the next update to Tools (due within the next few days), the DockingManager will include the HideAutoHiddenControl(Control ctrl) method, that can be invoked for this purpose.
