Dockable Form View

I have an MDI app with 1 formview and 3 Listviews.
I want to have the formview docked at the left side of the
mainframe.
So that when the other views are tiled/casceded/minimized/ moved, the views will not go behind the formview.

The formview must be resizable, so that the user can drag the form all the way to the right of the mainframe, so that the other views will be completly hidden.

How can this be done ?

For resizable formview, tryout Nanosoft's NSView at http://www.nanocorp.com/nsviews/default.htm

For docking view, tryout the MRCEXT42 for MFC 4.2 at
http://ourworld.compuserve.com/homepages/mrconway/mrcext.htm

They are free.

For docking views we are using Objective Toolkit from Stingray.
www.stingray.com
It is commercial but much better than MRCEXT42
