You promised us there will be no changes to the assembly code, except licensing stuff, between versions and!!! Now, after installing version we painfully experienced that you changed the MDI merging behaviour and an invisble ghost form is automatically created with each MDI child form. This is done by a call to "RegisterMdiChildTypes" in file "BarManager.cs" in "BarManager.OnMdiChildAdded". In older versions this this had been done only with explicit merging. WE DON''T WANT THIS BEHAVIOUR!!!!! ================================= How to get rid of it? Regards Holger Persch

Hi Holger, While I believe the claim was that no major changes would be made (we did have a few bugs to fix after all), I''m not aware of this change. I''ve contacted the XPMenus developer regarding this, and I''ll let you know as soon as I hear anything. Regards, Gregory Austin Syncfusion Inc.

Hi Gregory, Something in the code must have been changed because before the installation of version this never happened. Regards, Holger

Hi Holger, I''ve run an MDI merging sample through a memory profiler and discovered that you are correct. Extra dummy forms are being created under certain circumstances. I believe this is related to Defect #276 and have provided my findings to the developer working on that Defect. Regards, Gregory Austin Syncfusion Inc.
