How to Hide a docked Form

How do I hide a docked MDIChild using the DockinManager? We tried hiding a form in general by doing the following steps: - Override OnClosing - Set Visible to false - Cancel the Event by settine e.Cancel to true When doing this, we cannot close a docked window. It nearly disapperars from the MDIParent but the DockingHeader still remains visible. The "hidden" Form will show again whenever clicking on the DockLabel Tab. I guess that the problem could be that if we cancel the Closing Event we will no longer get the Closed event. Thanks in advance for any help. Regards, Alex

Hi Alex, You could hide (or show) any docking window using the DockingManager''s SetDockVisibility method as shown in the code snippet below : DockingManager.SetDockVisibility (ctrl, false); Please let me know if this does not work for you. Thanks for choosing Syncfusion products. Regards, Guru Patwal Syncfusion, Inc.

Guru, I already tried this with no result. I called the method SetDockVisibility() from within the overridden OnClosing Method and didn''t get the wanted result. Any other ideas? Regards, Alex
