We are starting design on an application which we would like to include elements of the visual studio IDE.  Not the fucntionality of the VS IDE but basically the look and feel.

Does anyone know of any information on the web which may help guide us in starting this project?

    Are you looking for direction on MDI (Multiple-Document Interface) coding?  What are the elements that you want to duplicate?

    If you want to see how an IDE is defined, try this:

    #develop:  The Open Source Development Environment for .NET:

    #develop (short for SharpDevelop) is a free IDE for C# and VB.NET projects on Microsoft's .NET platform.
