Real MDI child windows tabbing

Docking/MDI for Windows Forms Forum

Posted 19 years ago by Oleg
We are at the beginning of the new project and researching available libraries for tabbed mdi. On of the candidate is your UIStudio.
Can DocManager handle real mdi child windows rather than DocumentWindows?
Here is what I mean.

private void button1_Click(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
ChildForm childForm = new ChildForm();
childForm.MdiParent = this;

I can see child window if I DockManager.DocumentMdiStyle to Standard, but as soon as I change it to Tabbed in runtime ChildWindow is gone.
Is there a way to make DockManager to host just Forms?

I would think that leaving it as a None setting or maybe setting it as Standard and just not using any of the document window features would work.
