I am using the docking manager to handle many panels in a windows form. I have different user controls associated with each of the panels.

I have the following queries

1. I would like to know how the event for auto hide button click can be handled.
2. When AutoHide is clicked, how can the size of the control be changed. For example. When the control is docked i have the width as 250. When AutoHide is done, I would like to have the width as 150. When it is in the AutoHide mode, it doesnot reflect the size changes.
3. Dockable is selected, and Dock to is set to Left. When I go to Dock To sub menu, the Left option is not checked to indicate that the control is left docked.
4. While using the MDI option, when the MDI window is maximized, the minimize, maximize and close buttons doesnot display Tool Tip text. Whereas, when it is minimized, the ToolTipText is displayed.

Thanks for your time.

Hi Priya,

Posting the response provided in support incident for reference.

Hi Nitin,

1. The following events will trigger when you click on Autohide button.

this.dockingManager1.CaptionButtons[1].Click += new CancelEventHandler(Form1_Click);

this.dockingManager1.AutoHideAnimationStart += new Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.AutoHideAnimationEventHandler(this.dockingManager1_AutoHideAnimationStart);

2. Do you want to change the size when the autohidden control slides out when you mouse hover on the tab?

3. It was done intentionally. This is because when two docked controls are tabbed / or docked one below the other, dock style will differ. You can use the below code to get the dockstyle of a control.

DockingStyle dockStyle = this.dockingManager1.GetDockStyle(panel1);

4. Are you using Syncfusion menus, because I see the tooltip problem only when Syncfusion menus are used?
