We use your Docking & MDI components. We have several panels (toolwindow) with auto-hide mode. These panels call simple messageBox to ask confirmation from user. But this messageBox is modal window so it’s panel become hidden and user cannot see which panel show this messageBox. How we can configure panel to stay visible in this case?

Hi Stanislav,

As long as you call Activate(true) on the ToolWindow, it should stay open even when a MessageBox is open. If that doesn't help please put together a small sample project that reproduces your issue and email it over then we can take a closer look. Be sure to remove any executables or change the extension of the zip file to ensure it gets past our email filters.
