2 sliding panels

I have 2 sliding panels. When I click 1 button its panel slides in - disables the other button from allowing the second panel to slide. And if you click the same button again it slides the panel back off screen and re enables the second panel button.
What I would like to do is when I click on a button if the other panel is visible then hide it the show its own panel
        private void btnSent_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            if (btnInTransit.Enabled == true)
            {
                btnInTransit.Enabled = false;
            }
            else
            {
                btnInTransit.Enabled = true;
            }
            btnSent.Enabled = false;
            if (PanelLocation == 1)
            {
                panel2.Visible = true;
                //if showing - hide
                for (int i = 0; i < panel2.Width; i++)
                {
                    panel2.Location = new Point(746 + i, panel2.Location.Y);
                }
                PanelLocation = 0;
                panel2.Visible = false;
            }

Assuming neither Panel is visible when you start:
    public partial class Form1 : Form
    {

        public Form1()
        {
            InitializeComponent();
        }

        private enum PanelState
        {
            None, 
            Sent, 
            InTransit
        }

        private PanelState CurrentPanel = PanelState.None;

        private void btnSent_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            switch(CurrentPanel)
            {
                case PanelState.InTransit:
                    ShowPanel(panel1, false); // InTransit panel is currently showing, hide it..
                    ShowPanel(panel2, true); // ...then show the Sent panel.
                    CurrentPanel = PanelState.Sent;
                    break;
                case PanelState.None:
                    ShowPanel(panel2, true); // Nothing currently displayed, just show the Sent panel
                    CurrentPanel = PanelState.Sent;
                    break;
                case PanelState.Sent:
                    ShowPanel(panel2, false); // Sent panel is currently showing, hide it.
                    CurrentPanel = PanelState.None;
                    break;
            }
        }

        private void btnInTransit_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            switch (CurrentPanel)
            {
                case PanelState.Sent:
                    ShowPanel(panel2, false); // Sent panel is currently showing, hide it..
                    ShowPanel(panel1, true); // ...then show the InTransit panel.
                    CurrentPanel = PanelState.InTransit;
                    break;
                case PanelState.None:
                    ShowPanel(panel1, true); // Nothing currently displayed, just show the InTransit panel
                    CurrentPanel = PanelState.InTransit;
                    break;
                case PanelState.InTransit:
                    ShowPanel(panel1, false); // InTransit panel is currently showing, hide it.
                    CurrentPanel = PanelState.None;
                    break;
            }
        }

        private void ShowPanel(Panel pnl, bool Visible)
        {
            if (Visible)
            {
                // slide out to the left
                pnl.Visible = true;
                for (int i = 0; i < pnl.Width; i++)
                {
                    pnl.Location = new Point(1017 - i, pnl.Location.Y);
                    pnl.Invalidate();
                }
            }
            else
            {
                // slide in to the right
                for (int i = 0; i < pnl.Width; i++)
                {
                    pnl.Location = new Point(746 + i, pnl.Location.Y);
                    pnl.Invalidate();
                }
                pnl.Visible = false;
            }
        }

    }
