Property Value

Type Description
Boolean

true, if the Hide button is displayed when the current panel is auto-hidden; otherwise, false.

Remarks

By default, in the In-line auto-hide mode (see DockLayoutManager.AutoHideMode), auto-hidden layout panels display the Hide button when expanded. With a click on this button, an end-user can collapse the expanded panel. You can see the Hide button in the figure below.

LayoutPanel_HideButton

Set the ShowHideButton property to false to prevent the Hide button from being displayed. If the button is not displayed, an end-user can still collapse the expanded panel by clicking the panel tab.
