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
