A multiple-document interface (MDI) is a graphical user interface in which multiple windows reside under a single parent window. Such systems often allow child windows to embed other windows inside them as well, creating complex nested hierarchies. WEM as a no-code application development platform can help you in creating an MDI application that is much faster and user-friendly.
A multiple-document interface application built with the help of WEM can enable you to use a single menu bar and/or toolbar that is shared between all child windows, reducing clutter and increasing efficient use of screen space. Application’s child windows can be hidden/ minimized/ shown/maximized as a whole. Features such as “Tile” and “Cascade” can be implemented for the child windows. Authors of cross-platform applications can provide their users with consistent application behaviour between platforms. If the windowing environment and OS lack good window management, the application author can implement it themselves.
WEM-built MDI application will give you complete access to three kinds of windows: a frame window, an MDI client window, as well as several child windows. The frame window is like the main window of the application: it has a sizing border, a title bar, a window menu, a minimize button, and a maximize button. The application must register a window class for the frame window and provide a window procedure to support it.
Each document in the WEM-built multiple-document interface (MDI) application is displayed in a separate child window within the client area of the application’s main window. An MDI application can support more than one kind of document. A multiple-document interface application can be your saviour if dealing with hundreds of documents. WEM makes your life easy by helping you build an MDI application that is cost-effective, less time-consuming, and productive, without any coding.
