    Right click the panel and go into properties and you will find the setting there.

    I think I misunderstood your question . I went to the add to panel menu and selected add custom launcher, but was unable to create a command to activate my auto hide launcher. I think it is because auto hide is a setting in properties and not an application like menu applications.

    I also tried to add an location launcher for panel properties and the message returned was "operation not supported."

    This won't create a button , right click panel go to properties and check show hide buttons, to hide panel select the arrow or line on either side of the panel.

    I made this script a while back, it still functions as of 10.04:
    Code:
    #!/bin/bash
    #HidePanels
    #  This file is in the Public Domain.
    
    count=0
    
    while read line
    do
        keys[$((++count))]="${line}/auto_hide"
    done <<EOF
    $( gconftool-2 --all-dirs "/apps/panel/toplevels" )
    EOF
    
    old=$( gconftool-2 --get ${keys[1]} )
    
    case "$old" in
        "0" | "false" | "False" )
            new="true"
            ;;
        * )
            new="false"
            ;;
    esac
    
    for key in "${keys[@]}"
    do
        gconftool-2 --set "$key" --type bool "$new"
    done
    
    #End of File

    You would have to save this in a text file and grant it executable permissions.
    You could then create a custom launcher with it as the target.
