    Hi,

    I'm looking into the Telerik 'UI for Winforms'. I develop in Progress OpenEdge and as Progress is now owner of Telerik I would like to develop a .NET gui for a new application with Telerik controls.

    Before looking to Telerik I looked at Ingragistics. They have a control called 'MDI Tab Manager'. Purpose is, you have a MDI Form (parent) and the childforms appear as tabbed forms in the parent window.

    I was wondering if Telerik has such a control. I've looked at all the .net controls but didn't find anything about this.

     

    Kind regards

    Bart S.

    Hello Bart,

    Thank you for writing.

    In order to achieve Tabbed MDI functionality, you can use RadDock which support MDI handling. Please refer to the Automatic MDI Form Handling help article.

    I hope this information helps. Should you have further questions, I would be glad to help.

    Hello.

    I am developing my application using RADDOCK Telerik WinForms control in MDI with AutoDetectMdiChildren = true.  So I want to know how can I get the ActiveMDIChild in runtime, but it hasn't this function. How can I get it?

    Hello Cesar, 

    Thank you for writing.  

    When you use the RadDock as an MDI parent container, the MDI children forms can be created either as DocumentWindows or ToolWindows. You can use the RadDock.ActiveWindow property in order to get the currently active window and thus determine if it is an MDI child by getting by text.

    I hope this information helps. Should you have further questions I would be glad to help.
