I am working on a project based on MFC .. where I have a parameter set and live data . I use dialog boxes for parameter setting , sending it to machine etc . I read data from machine , process it and display that in various forms ( i.e. XY mode , Stripe chart mode , Pie chart etc)
Now I will be porting the same project on C# and windows form.
I am thinking that I can use MDI property .. where parent window will contain parameters and child windows will display data is graphics and text format. So that my customer can view parameters and data simultaneously and interface will be more simpler and better.
