I want to create a MDI window with Tabsheet(like Excel) attached at the
bottom of MainForm.  I should be able to open new child forms under any tab.
For example, i can have 3 child windows simultaneously in first tab, 5 child
windows in
second tab etc.  Child windows should be displayed based on active tab. For
example if First tab is active then 3 child windows should be displayed and
if second tab is active then 5 windows should be displayed.
I have reied ti do it but ,when iam arranging the child forms ,they are geeting arranged on the MDI form
and i want that to be on tabpages


 
   Is there any way of implementing this kind of application?  If you can
provide me with any sample application, that will be of great help

Would having a single form with a TabControl and the alignment set to Bottom work?  MDI forms are messy, IMHO.

It would help if you told me what version of .NET that you have?  2002, 2003 or 2005?

I was hoping for 2005, since 2003 doesn't have the necessary property for the TabControl, so just ignore my ramblings.
