I have run into a problem when attempting to show a floating form that has been hidden. I was under the impression that SetDockVisibility() was responsible for setting the visibility of floating controls as well as docked controls, however I am getting a NullReferenceException when calling SetDockVisibility() on a control that has been floated.
When the control is hidden by clicking the Close button in the upper right corner of the floating form and then I try to make the form visible again using SetDockVisibility(), the following exception is thrown:
System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

Is there a solution or work around for this? Is this even the proper way of making a floating form visible again after closing it?
I am using Syncfusion v126.96.36.199.
I have been using sample code provided by Syncfusion from an old forum post:http://websamples.syncfusion.com/samples/Tools.Windows/F70639/main.htm
