has an AutoDetectMdiChildForms
property. When it set to true
and it's parent Form IsMdiContainer
property is set to true
, the DockingManager
automatically manages the MDI Children forms. You need to set the MdiParent property to the parent form:
|childForm.MdiParent = parentForm; |
The child form is automatically shown in the Tabbed document interface of the DockingManager
. The MdiChildren
property returns all child forms the same way as form's MdiChildren property. Every child form is hosted in DocumentPane
instance, and can be accessed through MdiChild property of the DocumentPane object.
Unfortunately, for the moment our DockingManager has the same behavior as most other docking managers, i.e. in Dock Fill mode it covers the whole MDI client area.
