How do I set or get a docked control's AutoHide mode?

Platform: WinForms |
Control: DockingManager |
Published Date: April 30, 2011 |
Last Revised Date: July 10, 2014


The methods SetAutoHideMode and GetAutoHideMode are used to set and get the autohide state of the controls. Please refer the below code snippet which illustrates this:


// Sets panel 1 as AutoHidden window

dockingManager1.SetAutoHideMode(panel1,true); //false to remove autohiding

//Gets the AutoHide state of panel1

MessageBox.Show("Panel1 is in AutoHide State:"+dockingManager1.GetAutoHideMode(panel1).ToString());


' Sets panel 1 as AutoHidden window

DockingManager1.SetAutoHideMode(panel1,true) 'false to remove autohiding.

'Gets the AutoHide state of panel1

MessageBox.Show("Panel1 is in AutoHide State:" & DockingManager1.GetAutoHideMode(Panel1).ToString())
