I have a shell (that is a MDI form). This shell loads other children forms when a user selects from the menu. These children forms contain the "deckworkspaces" that the views will be loaded into. It seems that if I do not place the "deckworkspaces" into the main shell that I will have to load them by hand as they are unavailable to my workitems in the loaded dlls. My question is once I load the children forms into the shell, how do i add the "deckworkspaces" these forms contain to the (workitem or shell) so the views will have access to them?

Code examples would be nice.

Well, there is an MDIWorkspace, too. You could just use that and run all your SmartParts off of that. That way, you wouldn't have to worry about the DeckWorkspaces at all.
