//Changes docking window to MDI child window


//Attach MDI container to TabbedMDI manager

this.tm=new TabbedMDIManager();

this.tm.TabControlAdded+=new TabbedMDITabControlEventHandler(tm_TabControlAdded);

//Assign the MDI form into the TabbedManager MDI container.


//Enable the rendering for the Tabed mdi manager tabs

private void tm_TabControlAdded(object sender, TabbedMDITabControlEventArgs args)





'Creates a new panel control

Dim p As Panel = New Panel()

p.Name="New Panel"

'Enables docking for panel
