Multiple document application

Oct 24, 2008 at 5:27 PM

I'm attempting my first application using the Composite Application Library, and I'm at a loss for how to proceed. I want to create something like an MDI app - although using tabs for each document instead of MDI windows, since they're so 1990s. How would I create something like that? Would the top-level tabs be views with sub-regions? Would the documents be loaded into an instance of a service? Or am I completely off base?

As near as I can tell, none of the samples demonstrate this sort of app.

Any advice would be appreciated.

One possible approach would be to create a view that would host the document and display it in a TabControl region in the Shell window, for example.


The UI Composition Quickstart contains a TabControl as region, if you seek for an example.


Hope it helps.
