Great, so the "selected" mode is DE controlled?

OK, guess it could end up looking odd if too wide, since the handle sits within
the 6px border.  But adding few more pixels to get a clean edge and well formed
triangle should be fine.

>From an aesthetics view, having just a single triangle in this flat view seems
a bit off--and also is what Kingsoft has adopted. It points into the Sidebar
deck when open, or pointing into the document canvas when closed to the edge. 

It might be more appealing to use four triangles, or maybe only two but place a
square between them, just for something a bit more artistic.  

And of course will need the inverse for the other position of the Show/Hide
pair. And those assignments reverses when Sidebar is moved to dock left side.

Assigned to you so there is no question.
