Hide / Show status bar

Hi, I am using the docking manager on an MDI container form with a status bar. I would like to be able to Show() / Hide() the status bar. The problem is that calling Hide() does not resize the client area but instead the area where the status bar is located is just shown blank. If I remove the statusBar from the form's collection of controls the result is initially the same, however if I resize the window the status bar disappears (if removed) or appears (if added) as expected. I have tried calling RecalcHostFormLayout() and this has no effect. Thanks in advance, Nik

Nik, Thank you for bringing this issue to our attention. I was able to verify the condition and have filed a bug-report. The problem will be fixed for the forthcoming release of Essential Tools RC2. For the time being, you can workaround the condition by toggling the statusbar's Dock property before showing/hiding it. The following code should give you an idea,
if(this.statusBar1.Visible == true)
{
	this.statusBar1.Hide();
	this.statusBar1.Dock = DockStyle.None;
}
else
{
	this.statusBar1.Show();
	this.statusBar1.Dock = DockStyle.Bottom;
}
Thanks, Prakash Syncfusion
