I am trying to make a text editor using WeifenLuo.WinformsUI.Docking library.
I just need to find the active form. For example if I have to do cut.


How will I know about the active form ? I really need help!

Did you post at their forum or support?

Read documentation thoroughly. I worked with this library, all basic chores did not present any problems. Persistence of the layout was no good (I'm not sure if I used the latest version though), should be re-written...

I am also using it and I found a solution to your query.
See The Snippet below

Imports WeifenLuo.WinformsUI.Docking
Public ReadOnly Property ActiveForm() As DocumentForm
          Return TryCast(DockPanel.ActiveDocument, DocumentForm)
      End Get
  End Property

You can use this snippet if the document form has the texteditor. If you want to perform the Cut Operation, you can do like this


Undo :

This property will tell you which is the activeform and you will be able to perform the functions
