Remarks

An auto-hide group (a AutoHideGroup object) displays a dock panel(s) it owns in auto-hidden mode. There can exist multiple auto-hide groups docked to the top, left, right or bottom edge of the DockLayoutManager container.

To access all auto-hide groups or add new groups, use the DockLayoutManager.AutoHideGroups collection.

Examples

This example shows how to create auto-hidden panels in XAML. To create auto-hidden panels:

1) AutoHideGroup objects are added to the DockLayoutManager.AutoHideGroups collection.

2) Panels are added to the corresponding AutoHideGroup object.
