Drag TabbedMDIManager tabs between forms.

I have a multiple form application, each with their own TabbedMDIManager. I can create windows and move them around the window's tab groups by dragging around, but I can't seem to drag a tab into another form (i.e. another TabbedMDIManager).

Is there an easy way of doing this without implementing the OLE methods? I now I can programmatically detach one MDI child form and attach it to another in another parent from, but I want to be able to do this with drag-and-drop too.

Thanks in advance,

Hi Jas,

Thanks for your interest in Syncfusion Products.

In Docking manager it is possible to move docked windows between forms. The linked manager concept allows to transfer docked windows among two or more forms or user controls. It can be accomplished within a single method call. Also, it raises events according to the operations.
Please refer to the Linked Manager sample in Docking Package(C:\Program Files\Syncfusion\Essential Studio\\Windows\Tools.Windows\Samples\Docking Package\LinkedManagers) shipping with Essential Studio.

Best Regards,

Thanks for your reply but I'm not using a docking manager, only TabbedMDIManagers - I want to drag tab sheets into another form (with its own TabbedMDIManager instance) not docked controls from a docking manager.

I'm aware of the linked docking managers but I'm hoping I don't need to use a docking manager simply to allow tab sheets to be moved between forms.

Hi jas_sl,

With the current implementation, it is not possible to drag tabs from one form to another form. However, I will log a feature request regarding this so that it would be available in future versions.

Thanks for your interest in Syncfusion products.

Thanks for your feedback. I'll try to implement this with my own drag-and-drop code unless you guys are able to produce a quick example?
