hi,

why is the panel always recreated on each click on a folder? This appears to happen, no matter which type of panel I choose.

regards, Tilli

Hello Tilli,

This occurs whenever the context matches that specified in properties of the corresponding ADXOlFormsCollectionItem. You can prevent the form from being displayed by setting ADXOlForm.Visible = false in the ADXOlForm.ADXBeforeFormShow event.

I don't want to prevent my region from showing, but prevent it from being destroyed and recreated for each folder. I want my object to "live" alongside the (built-in) folder-tree.

At least this should not occur, if the context matched in the previous folder and still matches in the current folder. Can I detect the type and handle hiding and showing myself without being destroyed during folder-jumps?

regards, Tilli

Try using the OneInstanceForAllFolders value in the ADXOlFormsCollectionItem.Cached property.
