Hide/Show docking panes properly.

Aug 5, 2009 at 8:07 PM


I am new to AvalonDock and it's features. When I click on the close icon on a pane, that closes the pane, correct?

What I want to do is have a view menu item that you can select a pane and it either

a) is highlighted if it has not been closed.

b) Open/Show the closed pane in the middle of the application (like a dialog box).

Does anyone know a simple way to do this? I know there are show() hide() methods of _dockingManager, but not sure how to implement it.
