MDI with a form that can move "outside" the parent

P: n/a
How do you set up a MDI interface so that one of the MDI forms can be dragged
outside of the parent form. For example, in Visual Studio, you can do this
with some of the windows. Is this MDI? Or how do you that in C#.net?

melinda,

This isn't MDI. Rather, this is a separate window from the application,
which has no bounds on where it can be placed. It's just that there is a
docking mechanism that allows the window to be subsumed into the main
window.

.NET 1.1 doesn't have a mechanism for docking (you have to do it
yourself), and from what I understand, it is not a trivial operation. I
believe there are third party controls out there that allow you to do this
though.

Also, I think that .NET 2.0 has some support for docking controls as
well, so you might want to look there as well.

Hope this helps.
