    my DockingManager has about 10 DockPanels, which the user can Show / Hide at runtime with a set of given presets.
    So at times I need to hide 3 panels and show 3 other panels. Right now this looks ugly as the panels one by one start to show / hide and all the other panels adjust their sizes again and again.

    I tried to avoid that with SuspendLayout and ResumeLayout (both of the Panels and the DockingManager) without success.

    Is there a way to make this an "atomic operation" so the change goes smoother?

    Hi Falk Wegener,

    Sorry for the inconvenience.

    We have found some issues related to the animation of windows (Show/Hide operations) in AutoHide IDockable windows. These issues will be addressed in one of our future releases.

    If you have additional questions, please contact us.

    Kind regards,
