ToolWindow tool = new ToolWindow();
                       tool.Text = form.Text;
 
                       this.radDock1.FloatWindow(tool, new Rectangle(new Point(this.DesktopBounds.X + this.DesktopBounds.Width / 2 - formWidth / 2,
                       this.DesktopBounds.Y + this.DesktopBounds.Height / 2 - formHeight / 2), new Size(formWidth, formHeight)));
      
                       form.FormBorderStyle = System.Windows.Forms.FormBorderStyle.None;
                       form.TopLevel = false;
                       form.Dock = DockStyle.Fill;
                       form.Show();
                       foreach(DockWindow dock in this.radDock1.DockWindows)
                       {
                           if(GesHelper.Equals(dock.Name, tool.Name))
                           {
                               dock.Controls.Add(form);
                               dock.CloseAction = DockWindowCloseAction.CloseAndDispose;
                               break;
                           }
                       }

Hello Tree,

Thank you for writing.

When RadDock is used in MDI mode the MdiChildActivate event is not fired. In this case you can use one of the RadDock events. For example the ActiveWindowChanged event.

Please let me know if there is something else I can help you with.

Hi Tree,

Thank you for writing back.

This is expected since the text box does not notify its parent that it has received the focus. In this case you can subscribe to the GotFocus event and manually activate the window (this event handled can be used for other controls as well): 
void box_GotFocus(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
    Control box = sender as Control;
    
    radDock1.ActiveWindow = box.Parent.Parent as HostWindow;
}

I hope this helps.
