    Hi,
    I have a mdi form which opens a child form. The problem I have is that the panelbar on the main form covers part of the child form when maximised. I wish I could attach a screenshot to show you.

    Thanks for any help,

    Derek.

    Hi Derek,
        So based on the scenario you described it sounds like the RadPanelBar is docked on the MDIParent client area.  If that is the case, then the child form should fill the client area when maximized and not cover the form.  Are you using Anchors and Docking of your controls on the child form to enforce layout?  If not, maybe you are seeing the controls covered as there is not enough screen real estate.  If you have a Flickr or Picasa account perhaps you could post the screenshot there and put a link to it in your post.

    Thanks,
    John

    Hi Derek,

    I reviewed the screenshot that you have posted. The Mdi child form is overlapped by RadPanelBar most probably because RadPanelBar is not docked left. If it is docked left, the form will be displayed correctly. This is the normal WinForms behavior in the Mdi scenario.

    I hope this helps. If you have additional questions, feel free to contact me.
