Set delay before dockable control collapses?

When using the DockingManager, assume a control has been added to the docking system, has been docked to the left border, is in autohide mode, and is currently hidden. This control contains a series of LinkLabels that allow the user to navigate to various areas of the application. A typical user will click on the iconized image at the dock point, wait for the control to "pop out" and then move his mouse down and to the right to click on one of the navigation links in the control. Some users, however, move their mouse down slightly before moving to the right. By moving down first, there is a very brief period of time (maybe 100ms or so) when the mouse is not on the dockable control. The control therefore automatically hides itself and the user wonders "what happened to my navigation screen? It keeps going away before I can click something..." Is there a way to set the delay before a dockable control in autohide mode "pops in" (i.e. becomes hidden). If I could set this to like 100ms, it would solve the problem. I think this is the way Visual Studio.NET handles their own popup windows. I''m looking for something like: DockMgr.SetHideDelay(ctl,100); Is this possible? Day Vid

Hi Day Vid, The DockingManager now includes a new AutoHideInterval property that permits the show/hide interval for autohidden controls to be set by the application. The default interval has also been increased to 400 milliseconds to allow a bit of leniency in mouse movement over the tabs. This property is expected to be included in the next build of Essential Suite. Thanks for considering Syncfusion products. Regards, Guru Patwal Syncfusion, Inc.
