I''m using TabbedGroupedMDIManager class and TabbedGroup classes but I''ve noticed some
1. I create a TabbedGroupedMDIManager object, then I add a TabbedGroup to the collection
of TabbedGroups, (I create the TabbedGroup object first then I add it to the collection).
Once I''ve created the group, I add 3 or 4 forms by using AddForm of the TabbedGroup, however
whenever I query: tabbedGroupedMDIManager.TabbedGroups.MdiChildren.Length I get only one
child form even if there are more than one. (I assumed MdiChildren property would return a
collection of child forms asociated to the group).
2. Another problem comes when I detach the TabbedGroupedMDIManager object from the MdiContainer
(by using DetachFromMdiContainer), the three or four child forms appear in casacade so one
of them get focus and stay on top but if I click on the client area of one of the forms
that are behind the active form it doesn''t get focus, it only get focus when I click on
the caption bar (or borders) of the form, I''ve tested this behavior in normal MdiChild
environment (without using TabbedGroupedMDIManager) and this doesn''t happen
(active form stay on top but when I clikc on the client area of another form this one get focus).
Am I missing something?
I would really appreciate any help.
Thanks in advance!

I have tested for both of these issues in our latest release v126.96.36.199 and the TabbedGroupedMDIManager seems to be working as expected. Please refer to the test sample attached that illustrates this, and let me know if I have understood your problem correctly. Also, let me know if you are using an earlier version of Essential Suite. We appreciate your feedback, and thanks for choosing Syncfusion products.

Thanks for your answer and sample.
I''ve upgraded to release 188.8.131.52 but basically the problem is that I am accesing the MdiChildren collection like a zero-based collection (sorry..., my mistake).
In the second case, the behavior is due to I assign an MdiParent and call Show() of the child form before calling AddForm(), after searching in TabbedGroupedMDIManager''s code I realized there was no need to do that since AddForm calls Show() and assigns MdiParent, after this it behaves as expected.
Thanks for your attention.
