I have a main form that has child mdi forms with menubars and I am able to use RegisterMdiChildTypes for the mdi child form ok. I have added a DockingManager to the mdi child form and in it I dock another form with its own menubars. How can I get the menubars from the forms docked in the dockingmanager to merge to the top most form?

Hi Truman,

The merging of menubars from the docked forms of the docking manager can be done in the similar way as for mdichild forms ,by including the docked forms in the RegidterMdiChildTypes

this.mainFrameBarManager1.RegisterMdiChildTypes(new Type[] { typeof(ChildForm),typeof(DockedForm)});

The problem that I am having is that the docking manager is in the mdi child. So when I dock a form in the docking manager that is in the mdi child the menubars do not show up.

Hi Truman,

Thanks for the clarification,
Currently it is not possible to show the menubars of a form docked to another form, you can add the menubars of the docked forms to the child form's bar manager itself.
