I have a question about UI design in NET.
I am creating a scientific application with C# and VS2008. Currently I am using a tab control were till now I have 3 level tab depth (eg tab inside tab etc) which is not very convenient, nor user friendly.
I am thinking to switch to an outlook UI style were the general tabs will be moved to left panel with the form of buttons. While the right panel will have the detail form again with tabs but lesser depth.
So my question is what is the best approach of doing this?
Should I move to a MDI where in the right panel will load detail form's in full mode?
Or should I search for some specific tab component?
