MDI deprecated?,37414.0.html

still no MDI support?,5392.0.html

MDI application,29357.0.html

I'm actually develop an MDI application for Linux, Windows and others.
But I've discovered a bug on Windows release with LCL on the 2.6.x version.

LCL is very inconsistent between it's widgetsets (LCL-gtk2, LCL-win32, LCL-qt etc).   ...

As far as I know the only LCL widgetset that actually supports a usable MDI is LCL-Qt. So maybe you are better off using LCL-Qt on all your platforms, even Windows. But this makes deployment harder as you need to ship extra 3rd party (very large) libraries. Also since about the last 5+ years, nobody is really interested in tackling the MDI issues in Lazarus, so don't hold your breath for any fixes any time soon.
