When an AutoHide tool window is visible and I hover away from it, it closes automatically.
This is not what I want. I want to display details in the tool window in regard to the objects pointed by the mouse in another window, so I do not want the tool window to close automatically - except if I indeed click into another document.

Is there a way to control this?
Is there an event fired that can be cancelled to prevent the tool window from autohiding?

I believe you're looking for the 'DockManager.HideUnfocusedAutoHideToolWindowOnMouseLeave' property.

Almost... ;-)
Thanks for the quick reply!

My problem is that I need to click on objects in the other window.
The moment I click the tool window dissapears, even if I set the property you mentioned to false.
So what I am looking for is a way to (temporarily) turn off AutoHide even when clicking elsewhere...

Is there a way?
I hoped the DockManager_AutoHideToolWindowHiding-event was cancellable which it isn't... :-(
