    Hi Donnie,

    Thank you for writing.

    One way to achieve this is to use RadTitleBar control, and place the title bar and the panorama control is some container (like RadPanel for example). 

    The other way to do this is to create an instance of our RadTitleBarElement class, apply the desired settings regarding size and position of the buttons and then add the element to your form or panorama control. Please note that you should also implement the behavior of the Minimize, Maximize and Close buttons:
    public partial class Form1 : RadForm
        private RadTitleBarElement titleBar;
        public Form1()
            this.FormBorderStyle = System.Windows.Forms.FormBorderStyle.None;
            this.ControlBox = false;
        private void SetTitleBar()
            this.titleBar = new RadTitleBarElement();
            this.titleBar.FillPrimitive.Visibility = ElementVisibility.Hidden;
            this.titleBar.MaxSize = new Size(0, 30);
            this.titleBar.Children[1].Visibility = ElementVisibility.Hidden;
            this.titleBar.CloseButton.Parent.PositionOffset = new SizeF(0, 10);
            this.titleBar.CloseButton.MinSize = new Size(50, 50);
            this.titleBar.CloseButton.ButtonFillElement.Visibility = ElementVisibility.Collapsed;
            this.titleBar.MinimizeButton.MinSize = new Size(50, 50);
            this.titleBar.MinimizeButton.ButtonFillElement.Visibility = ElementVisibility.Collapsed;
            this.titleBar.MaximizeButton.MinSize = new Size(50, 50);
            this.titleBar.MaximizeButton.ButtonFillElement.Visibility = ElementVisibility.Collapsed;
            this.titleBar.CloseButton.SetValue(RadFormElement.IsFormActiveProperty, true);
            this.titleBar.MinimizeButton.SetValue(RadFormElement.IsFormActiveProperty, true);
            this.titleBar.MaximizeButton.SetValue(RadFormElement.IsFormActiveProperty, true);
            this.titleBar.Close += new TitleBarSystemEventHandler(titleBar_Close);
            this.titleBar.Minimize += new TitleBarSystemEventHandler(titleBar_Minimize);
            this.titleBar.MaximizeRestore += new TitleBarSystemEventHandler(titleBar_MaximizeRestore);
        private void titleBar_MaximizeRestore(object sender, EventArgs args)
            if (this.WindowState != FormWindowState.Maximized)
                this.WindowState = FormWindowState.Maximized;
                this.WindowState = FormWindowState.Normal;
        private void titleBar_Minimize(object sender, EventArgs args)
            this.WindowState = FormWindowState.Minimized;
        private void titleBar_Close(object sender, EventArgs args)

    I hope that this information helps. Should you have further questions please do not hesitate to ask.
