Is it possible to create an autohiding tool-panel with a pin like VS uses ?

P: n/a
Hi,

I have a form, which has a treeview control and a text area. Each node
has it's own rich text associated with it which I use to fill the text
box.

Once a node is selected and editing begun there is no need for the
treeview to be displayed. What I'm looking for is a way of creating a
toolbox type area on my form where I could sit my treeview control. I'm
looking for the ability to be able to auto hide this and pin it down
just like the visual studio tool box has.

Does anyone know how i can do this?

Thanks as always,

Gary.

There is nothing "in the box" that can do this. However, there are
commercial implementations. Here are a few (but there are many)...

There's also free implementations as well...

You may also want to search through the CodeProject
(http://www.codeproject.com/) to see what you can find.
