trapping the closing of a docked window

I am using the docking manager to create an XP Task Bar as a menu on my form that can be pinned or not using the docking manager. I am looking for the event to trap the closing of the docked element. I need to prevent the user closing the 'menu'. Ideally I would like the option of displaying the X or not, rather than trapping the mouse click and then cancelling it. Any ideas appreciated Thanks BOb

Bob, I saw your Direc-Trac support incident and realize that you've found out the solution. I am just posting this for the benefit of others that may be interested. The DockingManager fires the 'DockVisibilityChanged' event whenever a control is closed or shown. This is merely a notification event and does not permit cancellation. The DockingManager, however, has a 'CloseEnabled' property that can be turned off to display controls without the 'Close' button. Prakash Syncfusion, Inc.
