Disabling AutoHide for interactive elements does not work

When I set "AutoHide= false" in the markup, an exception occurs when the page load.

If I set it in code behind, no exception but the interactive elements still hide after a period of use.

Thanks a lot.

This has been fixed and will be available in the next update.

As a interim workaround you can either:
1) Set AutoHideInterval to something very high.
2) Handle the IsInteractiveChanged event and reset IsInteractive = true whenever it turns to false.

Thank you for reporting this & sorry for the inconvenience,

No problem, thanks for the good work.
