Tabbed MDI form control for WPF

If you miss the traditional multiple document interface (MDI) user interface in WPF, the MDI support in our document container framework comes to the rescue. You can also use the tabbed document interface (TDI) framework to build the latest VS 2010-style tabbed document interfaces.


The document container control comes with support for VS.NET-style tabbed document interface (TDI) and traditional multiple document (MDI) interface modes. In TDI mode, tab groups can even be created in code. The state of child windows can be persisted for use across application sessions. The containers also feature several built-in, common themes.

Full Screen

In TDI mode, the parent window can optionally be displayed in full-screen mode. The tab header is visible only when the pointer moves on the top of the window.

Window Switchers

The document container control comes with different modes of window switching for intuitive navigation. The functionality of the window switchers is illustrated in the following images.
