Create Simple Dockable Form Control



Figure: User interface sample of RipsWareFormDock.

Introduction 

Many desktop base application use dock style to manage more than one form in an application. its really cool!, then I try to create a control that provide that ability. Its very simple and easy to create and customize. Enjoy It. (sorry my English so bad! ^^;)

Using the code 

This is the very simple way to use RipsWareFormDock

 RipswareFormDock.AddForm(<form Tobe add>,[dock style(default Fill)]) 
'This code available on tester.zip at Form1.vb
'You just run the project to test
Private Sub Form1_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load 
	Dim WindowDockContainer1 As New WindowDockContainer1 'Dockable Form Container Declaration
	With WindowDockContainer1
            .AddForm(New Form, RipsWareFormDock.WindowsDockStyle.Fill)
            .AddForm(New Form, RipsWareFormDock.WindowsDockStyle.Top)
            .AddForm(New Form, RipsWareFormDock.WindowsDockStyle.Bottom)
            .AddForm(New Form, RipsWareFormDock.WindowsDockStyle.Left)
            .AddForm(New Form, RipsWareFormDock.WindowsDockStyle.Fill)
            .AddForm(New Form, RipsWareFormDock.WindowsDockStyle.Fill)
        End With
End Sub
		 

Points of Interest

You can manage more than one form in one parent form just like MDI style but this is in a tab style and can dock any where.
