Hi,
These are called Dockable windows. Below link will help if requirement is to hide/show the Catalog/Search windows. There is a sample code and you simply need to input proper GUID/ProgID for Catalog/Search windows.

Thavitinaidu,

Thanks for your help. I had the same requirement and I could fix it with your suggestion.

I am putting my findings here if anyone is interested.

The GUIDs of all dockable windows can be found in the registry at the following location.

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\ESRI\Desktop10.2\ArcMap\DockingPaneLayouts\panestate\Pane...

And the code to remove the dockable window is as below.



                IDockableWindowManager docWinMgr = pApps as IDockableWindowManager;
                UIDClass pUID = new UIDClass();
                pUID.Value = GUIDValue;
                IDockableWindow pDocWindow = docWinMgr.GetDockableWindow(pUID);

                if (pDocWindow != null)
                {
                    pDocWindow.Show(false);
                }



Thanks,
S.
