Thank you for writing.
If you are talking only about converting Forms t
, this will be as easy as changing the name your form descends from i.e Form
is replaced by RadForm
. However, if you are talking about changing all your application controls from the standard Microsoft controls to RadControls for WinForms, such a conversion should be done manually for each control. We are trying to keep our API as close as possible to Microsoft's API in order to make such a transition easier.
In regards to the second question, I am not quite sure that I can fully understand your current approach, however, I will suggest to use for a main form RadRibbonForm
(since you want a ribbon on the main form) and then, add your child forms as MDI children. Attached to this post you can find a demo of this approach.
I hope that you find this information helpful. Should you have any other questions, do not hesitate to contact us.
