TabbedMdi dragging & dropping

Docking/MDI for Windows Forms Forum

I want the user to be able to click & drag some object/control, drag it over a tab document that is currently not in focus (a tab different than the one that is currently open), and have the DockManager switch over to that tab document so the user can drop onto a separate tab.

The drag & drop part of this is trivial, but how do I get the DockManager to switch to the other tab automatically when someone hover's over it in the middle of a drag & drop event?

Thanks!

Hi George,

Is this just for OLE drag/drop operations that will fire all the framework DragXXX events?

Yup, I think the OLE drag/drop operations would be sufficient for what I'm trying to do.

Thanks,

Hi George,

The next major version of UIStudio now has code in it to switch tabs when you do an OLE drag/drop operation over them.
