AutoHide Problem with WindowsForms

Docking/MDI for WPF Forum

Posted 10 years ago by Bogdan
Version: 13.2.0592
Platform: .NET 4.0
Environment: Windows 7 (64-bit)


I've created a dockSite that contains 2 toolwindows and in the middle a Windows Form.
For each of the toolwindows AutoHide is active.
When I run the application and I hit the autohide button from any toolWindow it behaves as expected: the toolwindow hides and the windows form extends.
The problem is when I want to activate the toolWindow again(maximize it) : the toolWindow is completly unresponsive.

I tried the same scenario with a button in the middle, instead of a windows form and it's working as expected.

Do you have any suggestion to this problem?
Thank you!

Hi Bogdan,

It sounds like you might be running into some weird WPF/WinForms interop issue.  What happens if you try other WinForms controls inside of a WindowsFormsHost instead of a Form?
