      We have a Winforms  MDI application which has some toolbars shown in the MDI container form. We need to do the following -
    1. Ability to dock these toolbars to any edge of the MDI container form and also to float the toolbar.
    2. Ability to Auto hide the docked toolbars
    3. The MDI child forms should be shown and behave normally as they would appear in the MDI container form. We don't want to restrict the display of MDI child forms as tab pages.

    Can we use RadDock docking library for these tasks?

    Hi Shyam Acharya,

    RadDock component does not support this functionality and the MDI controller cannot be changed to the classic view -- only tabbed mode is allowed. Normal MDI Form with ToolStrip container and ToolStrips are more suitable for this scenario.
