I am not quite sure that I understand the meaning of 'minimizing' a ToolWindow. RadDock supports AutoHide windows
. These windows show up and become active when you hover a tab item placed near the border of RadDock. If the user activates another ToolWindow, the AutoHide window slides out and becomes a tab item again. If you call the Hide method of a window, you will not just minimize it, but you will hide it completely from view.
In the version that you are currently using, we have an issue with the Hide method that prevents the window from becoming a hidden window. This issue is addressed in our latest official release Q3 2010 SP1.
