Need to dock MDI child windows

My goal is to dock an MDI child window to the left side of an MDI window when it gets dragged over to that side.  

I created an MDI form with a splitter on it, and an MDI child window.  How do I trap for the event when the child form gets moved over to the left side?  If I could do this elegantly without using a timer or for/next loops would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks!

Seems very non-standard.  Regular forms don't have align properties on them.  It doesn't answer my question of how to trap for the mdi child's move event.  At this point, I will either have to poll for it in a timer or use a callback function.

Thanks anyway!
