    Good day,

    I am using RadRibbonForm window as my MDI Parent and RadDock AutoMdiDetection = true.
    Here is what I am trying to achieve. I do not want to duplicate my window base on the childForm.Text.
    Every time the user click a button for form entry, the system will check if the childForm.Text exist in the document tab of raddock.
    If it exist, it will focus on that tab, else it will be added in as mdi children.
    How to focus on that document tab?

    I have explore the raddock properties. ActiveWindow, DocumentArray,and etc are null.

    Hello Roger,

    Thank you for writing.

    In order to focus on a specific DocumentWindow, you should set it as an ActiveWindow:
    private void radButton1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        foreach (DockWindow dw in this.radDock1.DockWindows.DocumentWindows)
            if (dw.Text== "documentWindow3")
                this.radDock1.ActiveWindow = dw;

    I hope this information helps. Should you have further questions, I would be glad to help.
