Hi, I''m working on a CAB (http://practices.gotdotnet.com/projects/cab) and I''m using syncfusion components for menu''s and toolbars. Here''s how I work : I have a portal -Tabbed MDI parent- with a MainFrameBarManager (save,cancel, windows, edit, ...) WorkItems (UseCases) are loaded into the portal where each workitem contains one ChildFramebarManager. The workitems support one or more views. These views (usercontrols) are rendered into the childform (with framebarmanager) from a configuration file and contain multiple smartparts (usercontrols). Is it a good idea to work with main/child barmanagers or should I try to create a configuration file and create/import baritems, toolbars when a workitem runs.

Hi Krijn, From what I understand from the description of your application, your approach using the MainFrameBarmanager-ChildFrameBarManager looks fine. Regarding your following question - "should I try to create a configuration file and create/import baritems, toolbars when a workitem runs.", it all depends on your requirements. If you wish to have a MDI type of an application, where the parent and child form''s menus and Bars merge, then your current approach is recommended. Please provide us more information on what you are trying to accomplish here and we will suggest you an appropriate solution. We appreciate your interest in Syncfusion products. Regards, Guru Patwal Syncfusion, Inc.
