    First, I have to say it's the best book for C# I've seen. Great product. Amazing features. But I have some wishes...and to see if they are valid and if can be done. Are about how the book looks.
    1. First and most important i wish there is a shadow on the inside of the flipped page made by the flipped corner. I belive that this shadow should be in diagonal, parallel to the "bended" end of the page and it should move with it (from diagonal to the center of the page).  I attached an example of where and how the shadows would like to be.
    2. Light reflexion on the page durring flip (some white at he end of the gradient)?
    3. Also, why is there only one, I mean on one side-page, inner shadow once the book is opened? Plus, i wish we could control all these shadows (if they are applied or not) from some hooks/events in the program...
    4. A question: is the book using hardware acceleration durring flip?
    5. Durring the hard-page flip, text is flickering a lot. Why is that?

    Hi Emil,
    Thank you for the kind word, but unfortunately there's no straightforward way to change the shadows in the RadBook. You can try to edit the default template of the RadBookItems and add new shadows but this won't be very easy.
    I've attached a sample project which shows how you can add some more shadows so could you please examine it and see if it helps you?
    As for you last two questions - no, we don't use hardware acceleration during flipping and I'm not sure what exactly do you mean by flickering but I guess that the text may not look very good because of the transformations that are applied.
    If you have more questions don't hesitate to ask.

    All the best,
