IDE Winform Design problems

This is beyond me how people can make change to existing forms with the new
panel / splitter combination.

I have a form that needs a panel and a editor (3rd party) at the top of an
existing form. I have had absolutely no luck in making anything usable with
this requirement. No amount of docking or front to back will make this
work.

Any ideas , please help.

Sorry, I don't understand the problem.

Ok, I have a form with the following:

1. Dock top - Splitter (from previous incarnation when panel sat above
the splitter
2. Dock fill - editor
3. Dock top - Splitter
4. Dock left - Panel
5. Dock left - Splitter
6. Dock fill - Panel
7. Dock top - Splitter
8. Dock left - Editor
9. Dock left - Splitter
10. Dock fill - ListView
11. Dock none - Panel (anchor Top - Bottom - Right).

Now I need to reinsert the panel that will be at the top of the form so the
the splitter (#1) can change the size of the editor (#2) and the new top
panel.

Click on the caption of the form so it is selected. Go to the toolbox and
double click the panel toolbox item. Now its parented to the form so you can
set its dock property and use the send to back to have it at the top of the
form.

Thanks so much. I had tried for about an hour to do this. Was trying to do
merge from Source Safe even. I guess the secret is that the panel was
always parented to something other than the form. Good to know because this
seems to be a constant in what I am doing.
