//To attach TabbedMDIManager to form
this.tabbedMDIManager.AttachToMdiContainer(this);
//Set the tab group height and width at the run time
//MDI child creation
Form frm = new Form();
//Set MDI parent form of this form
frm.MdiParent = this;
//Set the title of the MDI Child
frm.Text = "test0";
//To show the MDI Child
frm.Show();
Form frm1 = new Form();
frm1.MdiParent = this;
frm1.Text = "test1";
frm1.Show();
//Creates a new vertical tab group, moving the active MDI child to that group
this.tabbedMDIManager.CreateNewVerticalGroup();
Form frm2 = new Form();
frm2.MdiParent = this;
frm2.Text = "test2";
frm2.Show();
this.tabbedMDIManager.CreateNewVerticalGroup();
//Divides the MDI child layout equally
tabbedMDIManager.AdjustTabGroupWeightsEqually();
Form frm3 = new Form();
frm3.MdiParent = this;
frm3.Text = "test3";
frm3.Show();
//Creates a new Horizontal tab group, moving the active MDI child to that group
this.tabbedMDIManager.CreateNewHorizontalGroup();
this.tabbedMDIManager.MdiChildren[1].Focus();
Form frm4 = new Form();
frm4.MdiParent = this;
frm4.Text = "test4";
frm4.Show();
this.tabbedMDIManager.CreateNewHorizontalGroup();
this.tabbedMDIManager.MdiChildren[0].Focus();
Form frm5 = new Form();
frm5.MdiParent = this;
frm5.Text = "test5";
frm5.Show();
this.tabbedMDIManager.CreateNewHorizontalGroup();
Form frm6 = new Form();
frm6.MdiParent = this;
frm6.Text = "test6";
frm6.Show();
this.tabbedMDIManager.CreateNewHorizontalGroup();
this.tabbedMDIManager.MdiChildren[4].Focus();
Form frm7 = new Form();
frm7.MdiParent = this;
frm7.Text = "test7";
frm7.Show();
this.tabbedMDIManager.CreateNewHorizontalGroup();
this.tabbedMDIManager.MdiChildren[3].Focus();
Form frm8 = new Form();
frm8.MdiParent = this;
frm8.Text = "test8";
frm8.Show();
this.tabbedMDIManager.CreateNewHorizontalGroup();
//To maintain the equal size for loaded TabGroup
this.tabbedMDIManager.BalanceTDILayout(4);
