User Interface like BDS2006 interface


I read lots of articles here and there about docking components in Delphi but I still don't understand how to get it to work correctly, and what components hierarchy do I have to use to get pr├ędictable results.
What I am looking for, is a little exemple (source code or detailed tutorial) of BDS2006-like user interface using a buch of tabbed panels that I can detach, group and arganize the way Delphi 2006 does.

Please only use bandled components or opensource ones

Thank you!

look at the Docking demo in \Program Files\Borland\BDS\4.0\Demos\DelphiWin32\VCLWin32\Docking for starters

I recommend dropping a TXPManifest on the main form for a XP style app

I've seen this demo, it does not show the most difficult part which is grouping the windows in tabs and giving to the docked windows a title bar (and a pin/unpin button).

And the TXPManifest on the main form did not work ;)

Ok, I found what I am looking for!!

The JVCL has a bunch of components dealing with docking and UI modularity. There are good use exemples.
