Asked On May 25, 2007 02:17 PM UTC

Sometimes, an autohide enabled panel controlled by a docking manager hides while the user is using the controls the panel hosts.

Is there a way to stop the panel from autohiding once it the user opens it....or at least set it's focus to true...or something like that.

What event fires when a autohide docked control is opened

Hi Nedu,

Thank you for using Syncfusion products.

It is possible to stop the panel from autohiding once the user opens it. Please call autohidden control's Focus() method in dockingManager1_AutoHideAnimationStop event handler and refer to the following code snippets which illustrates the same:

[ C# ]

private void dockingManager1_AutoHideAnimationStop(object sender, Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.AutoHideAnimationEventArgs arg)

The following events are fired when a autohidden control is opened or closed.

-> AutoHideAnimationStart event
-> AutoHideAnimationStop event

Please let me know if you have any other queries.
