I am creating an application builder that has VB IDE style. I have some windows like the ToolBox and the Project Explorer and I would like to make those windows dockable.
 Right now I am using a MDI form, with  3 form (toolbox, project explorer and a properties)that are not mdi childs, whenever I want to dock the windows I use the SetParent API, and than I hard code the left and top prop. This will  work, but there's several side effect.Once the window is "kind of docked" i can't undock them.
 I do not want to use any ocx. If any of you know somethin' about it please post it. Also, i would like to know if it is possible to use and to distribute the vb5ide.dll (which I am not using), but I plan to do so
Thanx
