    Hi Telerik Support Team:

    1. How to create  a Rad MDI form to the application ?
      Because I see there is no option to add the MDI form from the add windows forms dialog.
    2. I like to have a RadRibbonForm as my MDI parent form -- How to do this?
      and how to add RadForm as MDI child form for the above RadRibbonForm (MDI parent form)

    Expecting your valuable reply please.
    Regards,
    Thiru.

    Hi Thiru,

    After you add a RadRibbonForm to your project, you should just set its IsMdiContainer property to true in order to enable its MDI mode:

    this.IsMdiContainer = true;

    After that, you can add a RadForm as an MDI child as demonstrated in this article.

    I hope this helps.Regards,

    Hello Alex,

    The SplitContainer that you have docked in your ShapedForm covers the MDI area of the form. The child MDI form is shown on the surface of the MDI area, but since this area is covered, it is normal that you do not see the form. You should either remove the SplitContainer from your form, or if you really need the SplitContainer on the form, this means that you scenario does not need MDI. For more information about MDI and its specifics, please refer to this MSDN article.
