I have an application for which I have developed a dynamic user permissions based menu system. The menu system uses a tabcontrol and listview boxes to categories and display images and menu items for the app.
I want this to be visible underneath my sub forms all the time.
I am currently using MDI, since I like the container effect.
Obviously, I can't put the menu on my MDIparent, since then it appears on top of my subforms. (I even tried manually bringing the MDIClient to the front, but then it covers up my menu.)
I tried setting it as a MDI child, but it's not a fixed position, and it's not always at the back of the other open forms.
I know there's a way to do this, and I'm open to suggestions. -- except "why not just use a regular menu bar?" answer: because I like the way this one looks. :)
Thanks in advance
