I am trying to create a workbook like in Excel. I have created a MDI Container form and it did not display the grid when I add new WorkbookForm child window. I have copied these codes from the gridpad sample project. WorkbookModel workbook = new WorkbookModel("Workbook"); GridModel sheet1 = new GridModel(); sheet1.RowCount = 100; sheet1.ColCount = 10; GridModel sheet2 = new GridModel(); sheet2.RowCount = 100; sheet2.ColCount = 10; workbook.Worksheets.Add(new WorksheetModel(workbook, "Sheet 1", sheet1)); workbook.Worksheets.Add(new WorksheetModel(workbook, "Sheet 2", sheet2)); WorkbookForm doc = new WorkbookForm(workbook); doc.ThemesEnabled = true; doc.MdiParent = this; doc.Show();

Try code like this. It is the Initialize call that makes things go through. Attached are both C# and VB sample projects showing a minimal MDI application with grid workbooks. workbook = new WorkbookModel("Workbook"); GridControl grid1 = new GridControl(); grid1.Initialize(); //set properties of grid1 grid1.RowCount = 20; grid1.ColCount = 5; grid1.TableStyle.BackColor = Color.LightBlue; grid1[1,1].Text = "Grid1"; GridControl grid2 = new GridControl(); grid2.Initialize(); //set properties of grid1 grid2.RowCount = 10; grid2.ColCount = 15; grid2.TableStyle.BackColor = Color.LightGray; grid2[1,1].Text = "Grid2"; workbook.Worksheets.Add(new WorksheetModel(workbook, "Sheet 1", grid1.Model)); workbook.Worksheets.Add(new WorksheetModel(workbook, "Sheet 2", grid2.Model)); WorkbookForm doc = new WorkbookForm(workbook); doc.ThemesEnabled = true; doc.Text = workbook.Name + windowCount.ToString(); doc.MdiParent = this; doc.Show();
