We have an MDI application. There are essentially 2 classes of windows: Browser and editor. We have 2 types of Browsers and are 3 types of editors. We wish to open the browsers as one tabbed window docked on the left hand side and the editors as another on the right hand side. Now lets say the user closes all the browsers, we wish to make the editor tab occupy the whole space available. I think I cannot use the DocktoFill property because the parent is a MDI form.

Hi Nitin,

I am afraid that with the current implementation, we can not make a docking window to occupy the entire client space without using DockToFill to true and we can not set DockToFill to true for a MDI container.

Please let me know if you have any other questions.

Best regards,
