There is not a way to do this in the IDE that I'm aware of.

Is there some way to make the IDE windows context sensitive?
For example, it would be nice to have the Properties and Toolbox windows up
when I'm in Design mode but when I'm editing source code these two windows
serve no purpose and should be hidden.
This is NOT the same as using the auto hide functionality. When in Design
mode I want the Property and Toolbox windows up ALL the time and when in
Source mode they should be hidden ALL the time.
I tried using the MacroIDE but it does not seem to be able to discern a
Design mode window from a Source mode window.
