VisualStat has Tabbed MultiDocument Interface (MDI). Each MDI child form is represented by a tab item. The following is a list of the key features of the VisualStat MDI environment:

Multiple TabGroups
Tab items can be organized into multiple vertical or horizontal tab groups.

Tab Sizing Modes
Multiple tab sizing modes are available including fixed width, auto-sized and floating.

Drag & Drop functionality
Tabs can be repositioned within their tab groups, dragged to other tab groups or dragged to create new tab groups.

Save and load MDI layouts
The positions and settings of the MdiTab objects and MdiTabGroups can be saved when you quit VisualStat.

Resizable Tab Groups
A splitter bar is displayed between tab groups to allow the end user to resize the tab groups.

Custom Context Menus
A default context menu is displayed for the tab items.
