How can I add a panel to an MDI form, but stop child forms being created behind it?
Posted on 2008-11-01
I have an MDI parent form with a MainMenu, a ToolStrip, and a StatusBar. I want to add a panel to the left of the main form to host buttons (like the Outlook SideBar).
If I do not dock the panel child windows are created behind the panel. If I do dock the panel the menu, tool strip and status bar move to the left of the panel.
I want the panel to be docked left in the space between the existing components, and to automatically adjust in size if any or all of those components are hidden. Anyone got any suggestions?
