QMdiSubwindows. I need to open many subwindows inside a grid and move them around.

I have data coming from sockets and would like to display that data inside a grid or table of widgets or windows in a mainwindow. I was thinking using MDI area with 4 subwindows displaying 4 different data plots. Not sure if this is the right way to do it.
Another option I thought was designing a custom widget with close, maximize, minimize buttons and with the ability to move around and docking capabilities so it can place it back to the grid.
- Could anyone give me a hint on the best way to accomplish this?
- When I use a MDI Area , when calling the show() function in those 4 subwindows, it means that it is handling 4 different threads or process or maybe none?

I can only answer #2: the choice of using MDI windows has no effect on threads/processes. It is just a way of showing multiple windows, it has nothing to say about and no effect on what you show there.
