What are the SidePanel objects for?

I see 4 "SidePanel" objects (LeftSidePanel, RightSidePanel, TopSidePanel and BottomSidePanel)

They look like they could be helpful, but their children can only be a LayoutAnchorGroupControl (which has a private constructor).

I have found with AvalonDock, that if the API seems to be blocking me, it is because I am not doing it the right way.

What is the "right way" to use these SidePanel objects?

Note: I search the code base, and none of the examples use these objects.

I might be wrong but I believe the side panels are for 'autohidden' windows.
You can only add a LayoutAnchorGroupControl because this is an autohidden window.

Hope that helps.
