How to: Implement the tabbed interface in an MDI application

This example shows how to use an XtraTabbedMdiManager component to implement the tabbed interface in an MDI application.

When the main form (MDI Parent) is being loaded, an XtraTabbedMdiManager object is bound to the form by setting the XtraTabbedMdiManager.MdiParent property. In addition, a bar is created at the top of the form, and this contains a New command. Pressing the New command creates an MDI child form, automatically displayed as a tab by the XtraTabbedMdiManager.

The result of creating two child forms is shown below:
