Hi there,

I've got the WPF telerik controls which is great, but I'm new to WPF so many of the controls and usages are still a bit of a mystery.
If I wanted a static main form and when different buttons (almost like a menu, but each button represents a section of the application) are clicked then I want to load another form into the main form, kind of like old MDI forms.

What's the right tool for the job here. I almost thought the Tileview might do the job, but then it seems more like the tile view is more there to dislpay small chunks of data to the user and have them be able to move it around.

Thanks,
Jacques

Hi,

I would recommend you to use a TabControl or the Docking. The TileView is not the appropriate control for your case I think.
You could take a look at our online demos showing the controls in action: http://demos.telerik.com/silverlight/ 
Hope this helps. Please let us know if you need more info about our controls.

All the best,

Hi Hristo,

With the tab control or docking control, how would you load the content into them if they're developed in separate WPF views/pages?

Regards,
Jacques
