    I have a Raddock that contains a toolwindow that's set to autohide and it's docked on the left. The tool window contains some RadMulticolumnComboBoxes. The window is real wide, but not very tall, kind of like a thin tool strip that slides out with some additional options for the user. The problem is when the window opens, and then you open one of the comboboxes, the bounds of the dropdown box extends past the bounds of the window. So when you select an item, it automatically auto-hides the window since you're clicking 'outside' of it. Is there any way to catch this before it happens and stop the window from auto-hiding (AutoHideWindowClosing?) I don't want the window to automatically hide upon selecting an item from the combobox. Any input is appreciated!

    Thanks,
    Jason

    Hello Jason,

    Thank you for your question.

    I did not manage to reproduce the behavior of auto-hidden ToolWindow which you report. You can find attached a video demonstrating my test. The test consists of RadDock control with auto-hidden to left window which contains two RadMultiColumnComboBox controls. Selecting records from their pop-ups does not make the ToolWindow to hide. I have used the Q2 2011 release of the RadDock control to perform the test.

    Could you please give me additional details concerning your scenario which could help me to reproduce the undesired behavior? It will help me investigate this case further.

    I am looking forward to your reply.

    Best regards,

    hi Alexander,

    I appreciate you looking into this. I'm using 2010 Q3. The behavior in your video is exactly how I want it to work. When I select an item though, both the tools window and multicolumndropdown close. Maybe this is an issue with my version of the controls? We're not in a position where we can quickly upgrade.

    Also, it seems that the regular RadDropDownList doesn't give me the same problem...I may just switch to this.

    Hello Jason,

    I managed to reproduce the issue you observe using the Q3 2010 version of RadDock, but I am not able to provide work-around for this case. If you face difficulties updating your projects to the latest version of RadControls for WinForms, we will be glad to assist you.

    Best regards,

    Thanks again for looking into this. I've switched the dropdowns to the regular dropdown lists for now. We'll probably end up upgrading soon.
