I am currently evaluating the UIStudio and have a question about how to get menu merge to work.

First off, I am using .NET 2.0 beta 2 and the new MenuStrip control.

My child control for the DocumentWindow is of type UserControl. Both my UserControl and my MDI container contain a MenuStrip. Both MenuStrips have AllowMerge set to true. When I create the DocumentWindow it does not merge the UserControl's menu with the MDI container as expected.

Can anyone tell me what I may be doing wrong?

Is DocumentWindow checking to see if its parent control has IsMDIContainer set to true and subsequently setting its MDIParent property to the container?

Hi Roger,

Yes we do set the MdiParent property to the host container control if in Standard MDI mode. So I would think it would pick the menu up.

Ok, I failed to mention that I am using tabbed MDI mode.

Why do you not allow menu merge in tabbed MDI mode?
