I have a RadForm containing a RadDock and one left-docked toolwindow, one fill toolwindow and three right-docked toolwindows. I am experiencing three problems.
First, because I don't want the Right-docked tabs to be visible on form load, I call the .Hide() method to hide the three tool-windows. Later, when I want their tabs to be visible, I call the .AutoHide() Method for the right tool-windows, and for some reason they display their tabs on the left side of the screen. When you hover over the tabs, they slide out from the left side, but if you click the auto-hide button, they dock on the right side of the form. I have found a BAD workaround, which involves calling the .Show() method just before the .AutoHide() method, but this causes a lot of drawing artifacts and ugliness on the screen.
Second, in this same configuration, when I originally launch the form, by clicking a button on the MdiParent, the first thing I see is one of my right-docked toolwindows slide-opening animation, hovering in space, then disappearing, prior to the rest of the form displaying. Weird.
Third, If I have all three right-docked windows auto-hid, and hover over their tabs in sequence, it appears that the tabs do not hide when i move from one to the next, but in fact, all three stay open, with the last one on top of the first two. Thus, when I click the icon to turn off auto-hide and dock the window permanently, it actually opens all three in this manner, not just the last one I hovered over, as you'd expect.
Any help would be appreciated.
