Is ther a way to do this with the DockPanel Control? 

Right now I have the on the mdi parent load:

Me.IsMdiContainer = True
dockingManager1.AutoDetectMdiChildForms = True

and a button to open the customer database as:

FormName.MdiParent = Me
FormName.Show()


it creates a documentpanel and fills it in that but i want to open it in a left or right panel.

Hi TwoLaJit,

You can achieve that using the code snippet below:

Dim dockPanel As New DockPanel() 
FormName.TopLevel = False 
FormName.FormBorderStyle = FormBorderStyle.None 
dockPanel.Controls.Add(FormName) 
dockingManager1.SetDock(dockPanel, Telerik.WinControls.Docking.DockPosition.Left) 

Do not hesitate to contact us back if you have further questions.
