    Q : The best way to handle multiple data loads...

    It's pretty much as I stated in the original post. And it's more of a generic question than a specific problem I've got in a single form.

    Docking a child form

    I'm a bit of a newbie and just sort of teaching myself as I go along so this might be an obvious question but... I'm trying to dock a child form within the parent at the top, bottom and to the left. The width should be fixed (or ideally, resizable). I've tried combining the DockStyle enum...
