Hint about tabs

I am making a new application in C# (Windows application) and it will
require a number of forms. I then started to think that i should use panels
and not forms so that i could keep all within one form. This is a solution
that might work. I also tested a litte around MDI as an alternativ.

Tabs is also an option.

Then i started to think that it would be nice to solve it like Microsoft
does with the ToolBox they have in their IDE VS 2003. A tab or more in the
left margin and when clicked it slides out and reveals icons.
So i am wondering if anyone in here can point me to a good source where i
can read a little about it and maybee learn how to do it.

Best regards

It's a pretty complicated process. From what I have seen, most people
go with a 3rd party dll like sandock.

Hi, Dont know if there is such a control in 2.0 if not you better use a
third party framework (somebody posted last week a list of a few of them,
dig it in the archives)
