The context menu of AutoHideTab can be enabled or disabled by using the EnableAutoHideTabContextMenu property in DockingManager. The following code examples demonstrate the same.


//To enable the Context Menu on Auto-hidden tab.
this.dockingManager1.EnableAutoHideTabContextMenu = true;
//To disable the context menu on Auto-hidden tab.
this.dockingManager1.EnableAutoHideTabContextMenu = false;


'To enable the context menu on Auto-hidden tab.
Me.dockingManager1.EnableAutoHideTabContextMenu = True
'To disable the context menu on Auto-hidden tab.
Me.dockingManager1.EnableAutoHideTabContextMenu = False



The default value of the EnableAutoHideTabContextMenu is True and the context menu is displayed when you right-click on the auto hidden tab.
