A System.Windows.Size object that is the new object’s auto-hide size.


LayoutPanels contained within an AutoHideGroup are displayed when panel tab captions are hovered or clicked at runtime. In this case, the auto-hidden panel is expanded according to the size specified via the SetAutoHideSize method. If the target parameter is a panel, the SetAutoHideSize method specifies only this panel’s size. If the target is an AutoHideGroup, all panels within this group are affected.

Use the AutoHideGroup.GetAutoHideSize method to get the actual auto-hide size of an object.
