how to display multiple forms together at design-time

P: n/a
Hi all,

In VB6, you can display multiple forms together at design time. how do you
do that in vs.net?
as a default, vs.net has a group of tabs and only allow to see one at a time
unless you add a new tab group.

thanks much.

You've just answered yourself - Add a new tab group - and have a form in
each. If both of the forms are in one group, you can drag the form's tab over
to the other group.

I don't know how to do a horizontal split, though.

Mike,
Tab groups are so much nicer! ;-)

If you really need to see multiple forms at once without tab groups, you can
turn the tab groups off, and return to normal MDI. See 'Tools - Options -
Environment - General' under the Settings heading, you can choose "Tabbed
documents" or "MDI environment".

Hope this helps
Jay

Hi Jay,

I'd forgotten about that one. Probably because I don't like them either -
too much work ;-)
