    I have RadForm-derived class that I'm adding as RadDock document windows. How do I make them stay the same size as the container? Please see attachment.


    The code I'm using is something like this:

    var view = new MyView(rule)
        Dock = DockStyle.Fill,
        TopLevel = false,
        FormBorderStyle = FormBorderStyle.None,
        MdiParent = this,
        Text = "blah",
    var wnd = new DocumentWindow {Text = "blah"};


    I'm using an older version of Telerik at the moment. The version of RadDock.dll is 2017.3.912.40 and Runtime version is v4.0.30319.

    Just realized how wrong that code was, which I wrote early in the project.

    This should work, from the docs. I just tried it and it's kind of there but still showing the border/resize grip, but probably because I changed lots of properties of my form when experimenting.


    Configuring the Parent Form
    private void Form1_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        this.IsMdiContainer = true;
        this.radDock1.AutoDetectMdiChildren = true;
    3. Add a form to the project that will serve the role of child form. No properties, methods or event handlers need to be set for this form, except that you may want to add some content that will be visible when the child forms are displayed as tabbed documents.
    4. Add code to the parent form to create the child form and assign it an MDI parent:
    private void radMenuItem1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        Form childForm = new Form();
        childForm.Text = "MDI Child " + DateTime.Now.ToShortTimeString();
        childForm.MdiParent = this;
