Dear all,

I tried to hide a ToolWindow by using

toolWindowContainer1.Hide();

but when I changed TooolWindow to AutoHide state this code doesn't work any more. I think it is because toolWindowContainer1 does not exits in AutoHide state. Can anyone tell me what is the corret way to handle Hide and Show ToolWindow in different state?


Any help is appriciated.

Hi there.. yes the ToolWindowContainers are only used while a tool window is docked.

The ToolWindow.Close method will hide a tool window no matter where it is located in the UI. So that is the universal recommended way to hide tool windows.
