    I am using the docking controls version using Winforms and C#.

    I have two docked panels one above the other, horizontally.  If I autohide the top one, when I mouse-over on the hidden panel's label on the side, it slides out and covers the remaining panel.  Is there any way to get it to slide out to its originally docked position when I mouse-over on the panel's label on the side instead of covering the other panel?

    Hi Mark,
        When you expand autohidden dockpanels it is normal to cover the visible content beneath.  I confirmed this in Visual Studio to make sure and it works the same way.  Of course, I am not familiar with your scenario and that answer may be of no help. 
        It sounds like what you want is to set the panel back to a docked state on mouse-over instead of autohide.  I would be concerned about how the visual transition might look if the user moves in and out of the autohide area though.  Unfortunately, I could not see a way to accomplish what you are wanting with the control.  Perhaps that could be looked at as a future enhancement, but again the transition would be a concern.

    Hello Mark,

    This feature is not supported for RadDock component.

    A possible solution for this scenario is when MouseOver occurs to call the SetDock() method of the DockingManager, but once a window is docked you must call autohide again.

    I hope this was helpful. If you have additional questions, please contact us.

    Kind regards,
