I don't see any difference when setting any DockRenderer's AutoHideTab selected vs unselected properties. It appears that AutoHide tabs are always 'Selected', as the only property settings in the Seleced/Unselected group are the Selected variety. I suppose I would expect an AutoHideTab to become selected when hovering over it with the mouse cursor and unselected when the mouse leaves.
The AutoHide tab's border color will always be equal to the AutoHideTabSelectedBorderColor, whether the mouse is hovering over it, or not.
I checked the DockManager for a setting which might affect this. IgnoreAutoHideMouseClicks looks interesting, though I cannot discern what it means, or does. I spent a few minutes comparing its True vs False settings but couldn't see any difference in the running UI.
How or when does an AutoHideTab ever become 'unselected'?
