    This code works but user does not move to that new tab.  After the tab is added it has to be clicked on to view?  What am I doing wrong?

    private void Form1_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        this.IsMdiContainer = true;
        this.radDock1.AutoDetectMdiChildren = true;

    private void radMenuItem1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        Form childForm = new Form();
        childForm.Text = "MDI Child " + DateTime.Now.ToShortTimeString();
        childForm.MdiParent = this;

    Hi David,

    Thank you for writing.

    You should use the DockWindowAdded event to set the newly added window as active:
    private void radButtonElement1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        MyForm form = new MyForm();
        form.MdiParent = this;
        form.Text = DateTime.Now.ToString();
        radDock1.DockWindowAdded += new Telerik.WinControls.UI.Docking.DockWindowEventHandler(radDock1_DockWindowAdded);
    void radDock1_DockWindowAdded(object sender, Telerik.WinControls.UI.Docking.DockWindowEventArgs e)
        radDock1.ActiveWindow = e.DockWindow;

    I hope this helps.
    All the best,
    the Telerik team
