Dock Control in autohide mode

I need a quick help. I need to keep my dock control in auto hide mode but when I want control to be visible very first time. Like when you mouse over the control or click the control in docked position? If I use the following code then it is open but not in auto hide mode. It is docked. this.dockingManager.SetAutoHideMode(this.pnlDetailedNavigation, false); Any help would be appreciated. Thanks,

Hi VS, You can use ActivateControl to set the auto-hidden control as the active control, which will result in it being displayed. However, due to the way DockingManager loads, you can''t do it until after the Form''s Load event. To get around this, you can use a timer as follows: private void Form1_Load(object sender, System.EventArgs e) { timer1.Start(); } private void timer1_Tick(object sender, System.EventArgs e) { this.dockingManager1.ActivateControl(this.label1); timer1.Stop(); } Hope this helps.
