Hello,

I need  mdi layout where a left pane has menu's and the right major pane will act has a placeholder of winforms.
I tried RadSplitcontainer which did not prove a good option for me as the left menu pane should be resizibable,autohide,and all other such type of features for which i found RadDock as most appropriate. On setting its AutoDetectMdiChildren property to true, It shows me the most appropriate and ideal behaviour. I can add ToolWindows , dock them , hide them and so much of tasty stuff.

But there is only a single problem which hinders me to implement it and that is The RadDock opens the form in a Tabbed Document view, which i do not want. I only want to to display the form in its actual dimensions as the mdi container would otherwise show it. I was unable to find such kind of property for the RadDock.

Is there any solution to the abovesaid problem? Waiting for the solution fingers crossed.

Hello,

You can hide the tabs on rad dock with the following line of code
Me.RadDock1.DocumentTabsVisible = False

Hope that helps

Thanks Richard for your reply. But that is not going to solve my problem as it will only hide the tab but the form is still shown as a document with dock type as FILL.

Hello,

As far as I know, the RadDock does not support having document windows as floating MDI Windows at this time
All the best

I have the same problem. Is there any solution available now? Even If the MDI Child window is placed in center of the document window is ok for me.

Thanks
