How to Change Docking window into MDI Child window?

Platform: WinForms |
Control: DockingManager |
Published Date: April 30, 2011 |
Last Revised Date: May 23, 2019

The SetAsMDIChild method of Docking Manager is used to set the docking window to the MDIChild window.

 

Please refer the below code snippet which illustrates this:

C#

//Initialize the TabbedMDI Manager
TabbedMDIManager tabbedMDI = new TabbedMDIManager();
this.IsMdiContainer = true;
//Attach the Form to TabbedMDI Manager.
tabbedMDI.AttachToMdiContainer(this);
 
//To set as MDI Child window
this.dockingManager1.SetAsMDIChild(panel, true);
 
//To get back to Docking window from MDI Child window
this.dockingManager1.SetAsMDIChild(this.panel1, false);

 

VB

'Initialize the TabbedMDI Manager
Dim tabbedMDI As New TabbedMDIManager()
Me.IsMdiContainer = True
'Attach the Form to TabbedMDI Manager.
tabbedMDI.AttachToMdiContainer(Me)
 
'To set as MDI Child window
Me.dockingManager1.SetAsMDIChild(panel, True)
 
'To get back to Docking window from MDI Child window
Me.dockingManager1.SetAsMDIChild(panel, False)

 

Note:

The property named “IsMdiContainer” needs to enable in order to use the “SetAsMDIChild” function in DockingManager.

 

Docked control is set as MDI child
