How can we load a window with docking with a tool window with its initial state to "Docked".

I look at "DockingWindowState" but I can't find it in the property window in design mode.

Does anyone know how to ? Is it possible ?

Hi Eric,

Our Sample Browser, specifically the Features demo, includes several examples of how to define ToolWindows, including docked, auto-hidden, and initially-closed. Effectively, you include one or more ToolWindows in a ToolWindowContainer, which is in turn in a SplitContainer, etc.

The Programmatic Creation QuickStart shows how a ToolWindow can be created and docked in code-behind. Effectively, you need to call the ToolWindow.Dock method, and optionally specify a "target" and dock direction.

Thanks for your feedback.

I wanted to show the toolbox as hidden and found it.
I'm using .AutoHide() in InitializeComponent().

Thanks
Eric
