Pin/AutoHide ToolWindowContainer w/ DataBinding?

What is the proper way to pin/AutoHide a ToolWindowContainer via DataBinding?


If a container is in <actidock:DockSite.AutoHideLeftContainers>, it'll be in AutoHide state on program launch - but I can't figure out how to pin it.  Conversely, if added just via a regular SplitContainer, it'll start 'Pinned' - but I can't figure out how to un-pin.  The "State" property is missing a setter, & I wasn't able to dig up much else - what's the best way to switch states programmatically without breaking MVVM?


Thanks :)

Hi Justin,

As part of the MVVM improvements we made for the upcoming 2016.1 version, the ToolWindow class has a settable State property.  You will be able to bind to that property in that version.  Sorry but there isn't a similar settable property in 2015.1.

Alrighty, added to my ever-increasing vNext todo list :)

The latest build of this product (v24.1.2) was released 2 months ago, which was after the last post in this thread.
