DocumentWindow with WinForms UserControl doesn't work well with ToolWindow in AutoHide mode

Docking/MDI for WPF Forum

Posted 5 years ago by Ulf Andersson

I have a DocumentWindow with a WPF view containg a WinformsHost with one WinForms Usercontrol

I also have one ToolWindow.

They work well together until I try to set the ToolWindow in AutoHide. Then it isn't possible to see the tool window any more because the WinForms Usercontrol is always on top of the tool window. 

Is there a way to get this to work?

Hi Ulf,

Yes, please check out the "Docking / Interop Compatibility" topic in the documentation that comes with the product.  That walks through the settings you need to do to support interop content like WinForms properly.
