I’m a complete beginner on Xceed components, and have a questions. I’ve downloaded the SmartUI for .NET trial code, and am trying to build a winform application using the ExplorerTaskpane.
I have three forms in my project, lets say, Form1, Form2 and Form3. In my MainForm, I have the ExplorerTaskPane docked left, and has three groups, Group1, Group2 and Group3.
What I want to do is if I select Group1, I want Form1 to load in the UI to the right of the ExplorerTaskPane.
I have gone through the demos, but I can’t find SIMPLE examples on how to do what I want. Are the any folks out there who have some sample code or a sample project I can look at? I don’t care what language (C# or VB), just want an example that I can learn from.

When using “adorner” controls such as ExplorerTaskPane, you need to add a second WinPanel within the first one, and use the first panel as the DockHost, and the second one as the ClientHost. You must also set the first panel to Dock.Fill.
FormMain WinPanel1 <– Dock.Fill, used as the DockHost WinPanel2 <– Used as the ClientHost ExplorerTaskpane <– Dock.Left
