    I have created one radform and set IsMDICOntainer property = true. So that it will be changed as MDI form. Its fine.
    Now i am accessing one radribbon form as child form in this. When i maximized that child form window, in menu bar, 
    one more control box will be appearing , so that i can see total 3 control boxes there.
    I want to remove that extra control box. When i use normal radform as child form, then no issues.
    This issue with only radribbonform.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi vs vs,

    Thanks for contacting us. Currently, RadRibbonForm is not designed to be used as a MDI child form. It's main functionality is to provide Office 2007 like appearance for all top level forms in your application. I hope this answers your questions.

    Do not hesitate to write back anytime you have further questions or need assistance.

    All the best,
    the Telerik team

    you can use RadRibbonForm as an MDI Container by setting IsMDIContainer = true and then deleting the Panel1 which is in the centre of the form.
    Hope that helps

    Hello ,
    I found the RadMenuItem that I can set  MdiList to true -  that's what I did on the first picture. But it does not show any items at run time  when I open children..May be I need to set some other properties on in the code ??
    .Also I can not find this option on the Ribbon menu ..

    I want to have something like this:

    Thank you ,

    Hello Victoria F,

    The MdiList menu item is intended to work only in the context of RadMenu, following the behavior of the standard menu control. You can see at the screenshot below, what effect the MdiList property has on the "MDI List 1" accommodated by RadMenu:

    There is no implementation for this feature in the context of the menu in RadRibbonBar. We will consider introducing such a feature in one of our next releases. I am not able to provide you with any time frame though. For the time being, you can try to simulate the desired behavior by following the approach demonstrated in the attached project.

    I hope this helps.

    Kind regards,
    the Telerik team

    of RadControls for WinForms is available for download (see what's new). Get it today.

    Hello Raphael,

    Thank you for writing.

    This is still not implemented and for now you can use the approach suggested by Nikolay. I have logged a feature request for this in our Feedback Portal. You can track the item for status changes and add your vote for it here.

    Please let me know if there is something else I can help you with.
