Property Value

Type Description

true if the item can be hidden (auto-hidden, for dock items); otherwise, false.


Layout items can be hidden via the LayoutController.Hide method of the DockLayoutManager.LayoutController object.

To make a specific dock item auto-hidden in code, use the DockController.Hide method provided by the DockLayoutManager.DockController object. In XAML, you can create an auto-hidden panel by creating an AutoHideGroup, adding a panel to the group, and then adding the group to the DockLayoutManager.AutoHideGroups collection.
