MDI alike application with WPF

Hi.
Can some one suggest what can I use to create MDI alike application with WPF. All I find is tabbed MDI and I need to create child forms inside of parent like it possible with WIndows Forms.
No tabbed MDI please, I already have Infragistics installed and for my application I cannot use tabbed MDI.

Hi mastiSoft,

I am providing a couple of links for this but would you like to elaborate business requirements for MDI? I am curious to understand business requirements behind MDI.

If you would like to implement your own then I again suggest using http://mahapps.com/(I am extensively using it in my current projects but none of those have classic MDI requirements).

Regards,
Chinmay.

I forgot to include the link to the dll required for MSDN code, they moved from CodePlex to Git... Here it is: https://github.com/dutts/wpfmdi

Let me know if you have any further questions/concerns.

Thank you very much Mr.Chinmay. My application is actually a post-processing software in which user can open as much data file he wants.
All processing controls are located in the parent form, but can be applied to any child form. Because users like to compare files it is very important to have MDI base application. I rewriting my software some was in use over 10 years now and don't want to force my customer change there way to work.
Thanks again.
Have a nice weekend.

Hi mastiSoft,

Got it. This is an actual business requirement and I believe it should be honored. I have not seen very successful MDI apps of late but if your users are accustomed to something it is really hard (and sometimes ill-advised) to change it.

All the best in your journey :) and have a great weekend .

Regards,
Chinmay.
