I''m a newbie to the tabbed MDI functionality of Syncfusion and would like to implement an app which:
a) has tabbed MDI to allow the editing of multiple graphic files (with the tabs aligned at the top).
b) has another level of tabs per file (aligned at the bottom) so that the user can chose between a graphical view and a text file view of each individual graphic file.
The intent is to use the Essential Diagram functionality for the graphic editing and the Essential Edit functionality for the text editing side.
My question is what''s the best way of achieving this and still getting the benefit of MDI menu merging up through the window layers. That is, so that the menus change to suit when the user clicks on a graphical or text presentation for the various graphical files they are editing.
To aid in visualization see the attachment of this sort of interface being used in Visual Studio when editing say a HTML file or a resx file. The two tabs at the bottom for a design view and a text view is what''s needed.

There is no support for merging menus within a Child Form in TabbedMDI. So you will have to hide/make menu items visible based on whether you are on the design or the htnl view within the MDI Child Form.
