Is it possible to have TabbedMdiRootContainer without any borders?

The only reference to these borders I could find is the following:

Office2003DockRenderer.TabbedMdiRootContainerInnerBorderColor
Office2003DockRenderer.TabbedMdiRootContainerOuterBorderColor

This border limits our ability do design custom application look and feel.

Thanks,
Ernst

Yes you can create a renderer that overrides DrawTabbedMdiRootContainerBackground and draw the control yourself.

The problem is not the drawing. That border reduces the client area, so how do I get it back?

Ernst,

Hmmm, I'm a little confused then. The TabbedMdiRootContainer border should really only come into play when you don't have any documents open. Is this what you are talking about? If so, how are you putting other controls in there?
