Telerik's RadControls for WinForms is one of the best tools I have worked with in the last few years. The range of controls is impressive, the performance of these controls is absolutely awesome, and the APIs are rich and easy to use.
The Telerik team are very responsive. Support tickets are always answered with code snippets, which helps me complete my projects without delays. I get a response from the Telerik developers within 24 hours, which considering the time zone difference between the USA and Australia, is quite impressive.
I find the documentation very good, full of code samples which are simple enough even if you are a beginner.
Finally, the forums are great. I find a lot of information in there.

Our company has been using RadControls for WinForms since early 2012. When working on a project, as you know, time is money. Every minute we save from building complex controls is counted, and Telerik's suite does help a lot to reduce development time. Also our apps became very impressive to the users in terms of UI, which our developers couldn't do without the help of Telerik.
Thank you very much for the great controls!
As I observed while using your product, Telerik's RadControls for WinForms, it really helped me and our software development a lot. Aside from that, it made my job much easier since some of the controls, like the pivot grid, made our visualization (for example of a collapsible grid) come to life so effortless. More power to Telerik! :)
Telerik is consistent in their ability to deliver quality products and services with Grade A support. I have used everything from Sitefinity, RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX/WinForms, Kendo UI for MVC, and the entire "Just" line for productivity. I have yet to be disappointed and can't wait to see what they have brewing for next year!
Telerik's RadControls for WinForms are a great product, easy to use and with lots of configuration options. The demos are worthy checking out, it really helps a lot to understand how to use the different controls. The Visual Style Builder is a big plus in order to adjust the look and feeling of your application.
Telerik's RadControls for WinForms are just awsome!
The first time I saw them I wanted them in my desktop applications.
For my small development team it would take a lot of months of coding and graphical designing in order to get the functionality and look of the WinForms RadControls.
One of the most valuable things for me is that there different themes available, that change the look of the controls automatically in one second!
I wanted my applications to have that bit extra, instead of just being plain and using the standard Microsoft controls. Basically Telerik offer synergy for applications, they provide excellent functionality and excellent design and usability. I will always use them for any application I design and always recommend them.
User friendly (developer and end user) set of controls. All You need to make your applications fast and nice viewed.
I have used Telerik's RadControls for WinForms and they were very useful throughout my whole project. They were very light and easy to implement within our application. I think Telerik's WinForms controls really rock!
Telerik's RadControls for WinForms not only bring a breath of fresh air into WinForms UI design, but allow me to rapidly build complex applications utilizing this very comprehensive suite. Support has always been fast and first rate. I've tried many other control collections from various companies - I'm glad I settled with Telerik in the end.
I have been a software developer for over 20 years, working with Main Frame banking systems, DOS, VB1-6 and now C#. I have chosen the Telerik Premium Collection due to its common code base between WinForms, WPF and Silverlight which will allow me to use my experience with one platform’s controls to quickly migrate to the others. While evaluating their products I have had excellent response to questions and forum information. I am currently using the Scheduler control along with the Grid control and reporting module which is very flexible.
Software Analyst / Developer
Telerik's RadControls for WinForms are a value add in software development, allowing people to do more work with less effort. They look great, perform very well and are miles ahead from the competition!
The Bug Tracker demo is an excellent example of a real-world application that can be built with Telerik's RadControls for WinForms. Thanks to the variety of navigation and data controls that this suite provides, you can easily set up a fully-functional application with a slick and finished look.
Telerik products, specifically the RadControls for WinForms, provide us with a consistent end-user product that works very well for us. With excellent documentation and a supportive community, we have and will continue to look to Telerik to provide us the tools to achieve our goals.
Telerik provides enriched UI controls for WinForms that help me a lot in UI development and meeting the business needs of my customers. With such variety of controls that are pretty cool, the output is effective and powerful. Telerik's controls are easy to handle and manage. I especially like the grid features, that include sorting, filtering, etc. Loading huge amounts of data so quickly is awesome. The customer service and support are very helpful, as well. I've used the Winforms controls a lot and they really give new look to the whole application. Appreciate all your help and support.
I know Telerik already from one of the biggest mineral oil companies, where I was using their Windows Forms and ASP.Net Controls. Just a month ago, my current customer chose Telerik for Silverlight, because I was showing him the potential of the Scheduling Control, provided within the RadControls for Silverlight package. Currently I am evaluating the Windows Phone package for some of my projects. As always, I can say, the guys from Telrik have made their homework perfectly. The superior level of documentation, very responsive support and the high quality of Telerik products have made them my number 1 choice for a long time. I am especially impressed about the performance of Telerik products in comparison to other big players (control providers).
We have tried Telerik's ASP.NET Ajax controls and WindowsForms controls for our project. We found that these controls are awesome. We used the trial version and purchased it after trying for 8 days only.
Really nice controls to use. Great work done by the Telerik team. :-)
We in ONE1 worked with a third party software for a long time.
Now we are rewriting our ERP software to a higher version and at that point we have decided to integrate Telerik's RadGridView in all forms that display data.
We are developing the grid in Winforms environment using C# or VB.
Using VB6 interop code allows us to "speak" with the grid and all its abilities quite freely.
We populate the data through XML, export data to Excel, add and remove rows, etc.
We were surprised how easy it was with
Telerik's RadGrid. It is a very good solution for displaying and managing data for 4GL software, which in most cases doesn’t have
such a modern way to display and manipulate data.
I just tried the RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX and WinForms and I really reached a point: IT'S AMAZING !!!
As a developer, I'm always looking for new technologies to improve my works.
I've already tried several others but no one is like Telerik.
It's just awesome!
The easy-to-use implementation, User-Interface, a lot of skins, which I can even create or modify.
And that's not all.
There's also the incredible way to control and to adapt the controls to my website and/or application.
Congratulations to you guys for the amazing work you've done so far !!!!!!
I love it!
I have been in the IT industry for 27 years and have been a Microsoft Certified Trainer for 15 years. I have been using the Telerik Premium Collection for about 3 years now. Although I am very capable of writing my own controls, using Telerik controls has saved a huge number of hours for my team. The cost of building and maintaining your own controls can be massive and far outweighs the cost of a Telerik license. The support I have received from Telerik has been awesome and I have had answers to my queries on most occasions within 24 hours.
Our company tagline is "Beauty Meets Logic". Quite simply, we build solutions that look as good as they work. Out of the numerous third-party products we use, the Telerik Premium Collection for .NET is by far the most powerful and customizable, allowing us to deliver projects that live up to our high standards, on time and under budget. Backed up by ongoing product enhancements and a responsive support team, Telerik controls are a must have for any .NET developer.
Some time ago we started out with Telerik's RadControls for ASP.NET. Over the years we purchased all the Telerik products, never to be let down! It strikes me that Telerik is a remarkably customer oriented company. The product value is great! Lots of useful functions and nice looking features. Not overstuffed with marketing material, like some do. The support is superb. While other companies might try a few hints before going to lunch, Telerik often provides custom sample code, even if I don't ask! Bottom line, eh, rather not for everyone: Amazing value for your money!
I work in a water energy company (a government agency) in Turkey. I went to MCPD courses
and I was joking with my colleagues: "I am a software developer and I don't need any electric engineering anymore :)", but no one believed I will become a developer. Then I found the Telerik RadControls for WinForms and created a small application for WinForms really quickly. They can't joke with me now and everyone believes that I am a software engineer. Even if you are not an experienced developer you can impress everyone with your applications if you use the Telerik controls!
We have been using third party products for many years until we discovered Telerik's extensive robust suite of products - the Premium collection for .NET. What we enjoy the most about Telerik's products is their use of the same naming and standards as Microsoft. It is a pleasure to work with controls where we receive excellent support and get that sense of an extra member in our team that are able to resolve our most complex issues and questions. I would definitely continue to recommend Telerik to all my colleagues and customers.
The Telerik products are unmatched in their industry. I have been a programmer for several years and used several other 3rd party controls. The others have some cool features but I was forced to have multiple control vendors as each had something better to offer than the other. However, once I found Telerik controls and tested them I dropped all others and they have now become our sole vendor for development control and tools.
Not only are the products superior but the support is unbeatable. They even give the same support to the free products as well which is what sets them apart from their competition. I am currently looking into Sitefinity and knowing their track record I will be purchasing it shortly without hesitation.
Telerik is a MUST have for any developer.
It is now 5 years since I have subscribed to and started using Telerik controls for ASP.NET and sometimes for Windows Forms, I just started to also use the controls for Silverlight and JustCode.
Especially JustCode helps me very much to speed up the coding and navigating within it.
I'm really happy with the operation and the reliability of all Telerik products, and above all I am very happy with the technical support.
Normally I can find the solution to the problem in the forum or in the technical documentation. Only a few times I had to write to support to solve the problem.
I've been using Telerik products for years now. It's the secret developers don't want their competitors to know about because it gives them the competitive advantage.
We sell high end project management and reporting software to utility companies and right of way firms. They love the interface and ease of use, the great thing is we get all the credit! With Telerik's .NET controls you’ll save a huge amount of time and money on every project.
Telerik has the best support and example base that I have ever seen. Another great thing is the quarterly upgrades and constant new products that help developers.
Having had the opportunity to work with other components, I would like to vouch for Telerik's Winforms Controls. They, for sure, are the torch bearers among third-party controls. No other company's controls compare by far. The documentation is the best I've ever seen, and has been a tremendous asset to save my clients a great deal of time and money. To this, add the awesome support. The support is multi pronged. There are demos, videos, tutorials, documents, forums which all are incredible and are definitely an invaluable resource of information. Going forward, I would definitely like to recommend it to my clients, customers and peers.
Congratulations, Telerik for a job well done!!
I think the Telerik RadControls are the best third party controls for .NET currently available.
My company is using them for many different types of applications like Winforms, ASP.NET, WPF, Silverlight and recently Windows Phone 7.
These controls impress me with pretty interface and good performance, but what I like best is the professionalism of the Telerik technical support and the active Telerik community.
Whenever I need support, I receive it asap.
This is what a developer needs!
I've used several Telerik products (RadControls for ASP.NET Ajax, WinForms, WPF, and OpenAccess ORM) since coming into the software development industry a little over four years ago, and have had nothing but great experiences in each go-round. First and foremost Telerik's product support is second to none. Anytime I've had an issue or question in the past I've almost always had a response (which is usually the solution/answer) within twenty four hours. Secondly, I find that their controls are extremely easy to implement, and are highly customizable. And finally there's a level of consistency of updates and new releases that is unmatched in this industry.
I have been a software architect and project manager for the past 8-10 years and have just started using the Telerik RadControls for Windows Forms 2011 version. I was really amazed with some of the tools and exclusive controls available. Specially the Carousel and Calendar controls have left me wondering why I did not use the Telerik controls much earlier. I have recommended your product to some of my colleagues also and I am sure they will discover the same gems that I found in your master crafted products.
Keep up the good work!
We are currently re-developing our code generator named Code Complete. In the new version I have developed a modeling toll for .NET developers and designers. The user interface of the tool has been developed using the Telerik Winfoms controls. I have found the suite very powerful. It provides the best tools and controls currently available on the market. I have also found the help and the tutorials very easy to follow. The support is great.
My global impression with Telerik's WinForms controls is that they work as the regular controls in Visual Studio which is a good thing. The "feel"with them is good, the properties are logically categorized and they look great.
With the controls you can always adjust your products' look-and-feel to the latest Microsoft Office version, and the GridView control features are incredible.
Also I really like the way that Telerik interacts with it's community! They are always open to suggestions and forum posts are answered in a really timely fashion.
Of course a very pleasant "side-effect" they created with this, is that I can earn Telerik-points!
I use Telerik's RadControls for WinForms, and they're just ridiculously easy to use, and an amazing time saver! I recently discovered Telerik and I just fell in love. I am Moroccan so I think that this is the first distant relationship that might seriously work. :)))
We use Telerik's Premium Collection for many of our clients, implementing a diverse array of functionality easily and reliably. The technical support is excellent, the upgrades are frequent and stable, and the overall experience has been excellent. We would recommend Telerik to any company.
Telerik's ASP.NET AJAX and WinForms suites provide a wide range of controls with plenty of features. They are very developer friendly and the look & feel is awesome. The Telerik Webinars are very helpful for learning how to use and best customize the controls. The support and services provided by Telerik are marvelous. Thank you Telerik for providing feature-rich, great looking controls with maximum service and support!
ASP.NET Web Developer
Teleirk's outstanding suites of Controls and the incredible support provided for them have helped our departments productivity exponentially. The constant updates, and their ability to stay on top of the latest technologies set them far beyond their competitors. We've maintained multiple licenses of their entire suite of controls for years, and will continue to do so for many more.
I am glad to take a moment to sing the praises of one of the most brilliant investments I have made since starting Becking Holdings in 2004. I started out with a competitor product. While their controls were adequate for the purpose I needed them, they did not have either the support or dedication to project evolution that you guys have! I switched to Telerik a few years ago and I can say that, without a doubt, Telerik is the industry leader in .NET controls and visual appeal. I have used the Telerik suite to design over 8 full products, some standard .NET applications, some Telerik, and I just have to say a big "Thank You, Telerik" Thanks to your products, I am miles ahead of my competition! I've recommended your product to another company now and they will be purchasing it shortly. Thanks again!
I started using Telerik controls a few years back in an old job, and was impressed straight away. In my current position, one of the first things I did was to ensure the company bought Telerik controls. They have made our development process smoother, and brought in additional functionality that would have been unthinkable without the Telerik controls.
I've been so impressed by both the controls and the company, that it has motivated me to help others and spread the Telerik news. I'm now a proud Telerik MVP and love both developing with the suite of products and being associated to a passionate and professional company that is Telerik.
Our business is bringing eGoverment services to the local authorities in Austria. As the market leader here, our customers know that we deliver quality to a fair price. To achieve that we rely on Telerik components, because they help us to save development time and costs.
I own a license for the Telerik Premium Collection and worked with Telerik's products on several projects for Pfizer Mexico, working as a developer for a technology company in my country. Telerik's controls are a great time saver. The feature that I liked most is how easy and fast the look and feel can be customized. The majority of my users are very business oriented and the most important feature for them is usability and ease of navigation for the interface. The RadControls of Telerik have proved to be very valuable for creating clear, concise and great looking interfaces to satisfy business customers.
I have previously trialed a third party component suite, as well as owned a license of another competitor of Telerik. At first I was aggravated at Telerik's Winforms controls, but after learning how to use them it simply clicks that Telerik is ahead with not only looks. Telerik is designed in a way that I can change my controls faster. For example, I like the RadPageView control as I can quickly change my options from Outlook View to others, etc. All of the Winforms controls of Telerik are great! I have not yet found a complaint. The customer support is quick and responsive, too.
After years of using the standard .NET controls, adding Telerik to my toolbelt has greatly improved my productivity and the look of my applications. Telerik tools are well documented and the support forums are fantastic. I especially love the no-nonsense approach to licensing. After having used tools from other vendors, Telerik sticks with their motto of rock solid software over rock solid licensing. If you are considering Telerik for your development environment, I highly recommend it.
Always moving forward, always helping developers be more productive and more transparent to their management. Telerik's cost-benefit is unmatched.
I have been testing Telerik's RadControls for Silverlight/WPF and Winforms and the features are great! It's very easy to use and implement into your application. However, there are still missing features, that I would like to see implemented in some of the controls in near future. Generally Telerik's RadControls stand out among other competitive products.
From a developer's point of view, the Telerik suite is my weapon of choice because it combines three key attributes: excellent product, amazing support and sensible licensing model. There's plenty of other players in the market but no one comes close to Telerik.
My development team has been using different Telerik's Rad Controls suites for over a year. They enriched our web and windows applications while lowering development time. Our customers are very satisfied with the results and our products have a very professional touch of style, without losing performance.
We are going to renew our subscription. Besides the support is excellent.
After trying various 3rd party components I found that Telerik's WinForms controls offer the best features and and ease of use. They provide plenty of sample codes to learn from and to help the evaluation process. Telerik's technical experience really shines in their products.
At Univision, we have been using the ASP.net RadControls for 4 years. These are in my opinion the best controls I have used. Besides the functionality, features, and ease of use, you also get great examples on how to use the controls. Also, the support is very responsive which is invaluable to us.
Since then we purchased the full suite. The WPF and Silverlight examples have given us great ideas about improving on our own dashboard.
For the small price of the controls, you will gain in time saved in developing the same functionality yourself.
I have been using Telerik's WinForms and ASP.NET Controls for almost 5 years and I can personally say that most of our company's success is because of Telerik.
Telerik Controls are simply the best! Great control with superb Support Team. More power Telerik!
