I have a requirement which uses a popup launched from a grid which resides in a tool window. Default state of the tool window is auto hide.
Now, when the tool window expands and the grid is shown, the end user can click a grid command button which launches a lookup dialog. The dialog returns the selected value with an event which is handled by the eventhandler from the tool window grid.
Here's the problem: when the dialog is shown, the tool window closes. I want the window to remain expanded while the dialog is shown.
Is there a way to keep it expanded _without_ changing the tool window state (e.g. to docked)?
Any thoughts on this?
