    Before I beat myself silly,  Is it possible in WinForms to have nested MDI parents. Or in other words a MDI child that is also a MDI Parent.
    Seems reasonable... but you cannot in standard .Net.

    Why you ask?  I am building a Dashboard type app where the main dashboard (or desktop) is a MDI form.  But when the user opens a 'project' folder, I would like it to be a MDI parent as well, so subsequent forms etc will stay in the projects mini-dashboard.

    Hi Ray,

    Thanks for contacting us and for your interest in RadControls for WinForms.

    Unfortunately, Windows does not allow MDI children to be MDI containers. Since RadForm simply extends the functionality of a standard windows form, this behavior is also applicable to it.

    Do not hasitate to write back if you have further questions.
