Morning,

I'm trying to embed a form that has a RadDock into my main application RadDock.  The idea is that an end user would search for a project and the project would be loaded into the main forms RadDock (rdkMain). This would allow for more than one project to be shown at any given time.  The project form could have multiple vendors which each would be loaded into the project RadDock(rdkProject).  I understand that windows will only allow for a single form to be set to IsMdiContainer.  Is there any way of doing this?

 

Thanks,

 

James

Hello, James, 

Thank you for writing.  

Your question has already been answered in the support thread you have opened on the same topic. However, I am posting the reply here as well in order the community to benefit from it. I think that our Demo application >> Dock >> Visual Studio IDE example would be useful for your case. RadDock has the capability of automatically finding and attaching Multiple Document Interface (MDI) child forms as tabbed documents. Additional information is available in the following help article: https://docs.telerik.com/devtools/winforms/dock/mdi-mode/automatic-mdi-form-handling

However, have in mind that a single form can be an MDI parent container. Having multiple RadDock controls on the same form is not recommended as it would make the layout heavy for maintaining. I can suggest you to use a separate form with a RadDock to load the desired solution/project's data. 

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