A dockmanager was created and 2 toolwindows are the configuration windows which should be hidden after a calculate is requested and thus adding the necessary tool windows dynamically.   However, when setting the configuration toolwindows to autohide,  the DockManager.ToolWindowLayoutData drops them.

Here's the xml before the autohide set.

Then we set:

twConfiguration.State = ToolWindowState.AutoHide;
twSpecimen.State = ToolWindowState.AutoHide;

Here's the layout after the set:

Hello,

Could you put together a new very simple sample project that shows this issue happening and submit a support ticket with that, referencing this thread?  Then we can debug with that project to see what you see and figure out why they are getting dropped.  Please remove the bin/obj folders from the ZIP you send and rename the .zip file extension so it doesn't get spam blocked.  Thanks!
