but I'm not seeing where I have that sort of thing to switch over. Does anyone have any ideas how to switch over to tiled from tabbed? I'm fine with the contents of my controls[i] containing the correct information. The tabbed forms look fine. We decided to change the look because we think it will work better with this application. Thanks!
Instead of calling their startup form the default name of Form1, they changed the name to MDIParent1. Whether of a not a form supports MDI is just a property setting on the form. Just look in the Properties box of your form for "IsMdiContainer".
By the way, everyone is moving AWAY from MDI, not towards it.
After that, I guess you'll have a bunch of code to rewrite as you apparently won't being TabControl anymore. The only person who can tell you what you have to do is yourself since you're the one who designed the app in its current form.
But it's filling up my entire area. Do you know how to scale the control's contents down to 1/4 the size? I think once I do that, it won't be tough to figure out how to position it (tiled) in the right location in my form with the other 4 controls I'm adding. It didn't let me say newForm.size = controls[i].size/4. (operator / can't be applied to system.drawing.size and int)
