How to dock a form within a host form?


A form can be docked within another host form. You need to set the following properties for the child form to be able to do this:


this.f1.TopLevel = false;

this.f1.FormBorderStyle = System.Windows.Forms.FormBorderStyle.None;



Me.f1.TopLevel = False

Me.f1.FormBorderStyle = System.Windows.Forms.FormBorderStyle.None


Once these properties are set, the child form would behave like any other dockable control and it can be docked or floated as desired.
