Is there any use for this method?
I want it to do what it says on the tin, and create a new vetical tab group but in the help it says that it does the same as MoveToNewHorizontalTabbedMdiContainer and when used does exactly the same.

Is this a bug?

The documentation was a copy/paste bug but it does do a vertical container. I just tested it and it works fine.

Now keep in mind that containers only go one way or the other. So if you currently have no tabbed splits then the first one you make will be either horizontal or vertical depending on the method you call. Say you make a horizontal one. Then if you call MoveToNewVerticalTabbedMdiContainer it will NOT make a vertical one since you already established you are doing horizontal splits. So I believe in that case it will make another horizontal one. If you remove all splits and then call MoveToNewVerticalTabbedMdiContainer then you start making vertical splits. This is how Visual Studio works as well.

Hope that explains it.

Cheers,
I think I was blinded by the doc paste error.
