    I'm developping an mdi application where all forms inherits from ShapedForm and contain a radTitleBar dock on top. The Main form also contains a radMenu and a radToolStrip. to here nothing too complex. The problem i'm getting is when child forms are maximized i do not see the child radTitleBar anymore so impossible to minimize, close. Also when minimizing a childform, i do not see the minimized windows in the bottom parts of the mainForm??

    Is there a sample mdi using radtitlebar?
    Thanks

    Hello Mateo,

    Currently RadTitleBar does not support MDI merge buttons. Therefore there is no example for using it as MDI container window. This is a nice feature and we will implement it in one of our next versions.

    We suggest using RadRibbonBar instead. RadRibbonBar supports MDI applications.

    Ok my main form is now using a ribbonbar.
    My child forms inherits from shapedForm and contain a radTitleBar on top. Same proble occurs. When i minimize the form i cannot see the minimized form on bottom of the main Form.
    Also now when i maximize a child form i see two sets of minimize/maximize/close buttons.?

    Are you trying to say that i cannot use RadTitlebar in a child form?

    Thanks

    i'm editing this post cause i've just tested using a plain old child form with no shapedForm and no radTitleBar and when i maximize the form i sometimes see the minimize/maximize/close buttons and sometimes NOT??? I did the same as in your example. Is this normal?

    Thanks again

    Hello Mateo,

    In the first case the MDI child forms cannot be inherited from ShapedForm. This functionality is not available yet, but is on our pipeline for research and development.

    As to the case with minimize/maximize/close - we are familiar with it and it will be fixed in our next release due next week.
