SuggestionMaking a dynamic tool system : help, advice Pin
new Human("Carson");10-Mar-18 5:36
new Human("Carson");10-Mar-18 5:36 
I have this problem, but before I tell you the problem I need to tell you what my goal is. I'm building an application where there is a main form(I'm using c# and winforms) and a bunch of mini tool forms that go along with the main one. I understand there are frameworks already like this, but I want to create my own. I would like the tool forms to be able to dock to the main form based off of percentages(unless there are other ideas) so that when you scale the main form the tool windows change with it. The tool forms should also be reshape-able inside the main form, and therefore should have an affect on the other forms in the layout.

Another necessity is that you can save the current "workspace" and load it from a file. So, whichever method I choose has to be able to call a finished loadWorkspaceFromFile(); and saveWorkspaceToFile(); on the main form.

Right now I have all the tool forms as separate forms, and I want to keep it that way. I've messed around with windows tracking other windows in my application, and I think the speed and performance is fine, so I wouldn't want to go to a resize-able panel system.

I know my way around c# I'm just looking for some insight and inspiration on how to go about solving this algorithmic problem. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance for your time, Carson
