Is the main menu windows of Delphi MDI?
I just want to program some drawing tools,not compiler.

I think so MainWindow of Delphi isn't MDI. You need work at resize events.

I was recently working on a Drawing Tool software for a textile designer where he wanted the same interface of Delphi/Borland C++ builder for his main menu. This is how we implemented it:

1. Drop a menu item on the form and fill it up as per your needs.
2. Size the form so that it is the size of Delphi's.
3. On the left side, add the necessary Speed Buttons.
4. Drop a tabbed note book control and create all the menu tabs.
5. Add necessary speed buttons to the different pages in the tabbed notebook.
6. For the Onresize event, fix the form's height in the code. Ex height:=120. I admit that this causes some flickering, but the menu and toolbar portion will have the same look and feel as that of Delphi.
7. For proper aesthetics, use Panel and Splitter components if needed.
