What have you tried?
Have you looked into existing controls yet?

Google runs a completely new process for each tab. Basically each tab is a program, and the container is a host in which the programs all display. This is no trivial task.

Stop building everything in forms. As you have just learned they are limiting.

If you build your controls into UserControls you have a lot more options. You can put 1 or 1,000 UserControls on one form to make something complex. Or when you need it as a form by itself it only takes a couple lines.


myCustomUserControl mcuc = new myCustomUserControl;
Form frm = new Form();
frm.Controls.add(mcuc);
frm.Show();
