    Hi All,

    So I'm playing around with the Telerik trial code a bit more, and one thing that I've noticed is that when a docked panel has the auto-hide property set, and it's tab is being displayed vertically (docked to the left or right side of the screen), the vertical text just looks horrible - jagged, etc. Is there a way to fix this? An anti-aliasing setting or something else? I'm coming over from the Infragistics tools and they don't have that problem, the text in vertical tabs looks fine...

    Hello Russell,

    Thank you for your interest in RadControls for WinForms.

    If I understand your case correctly, you are concerning the fact that the text of the title of a toolwindow and the same text in the vertical mode look different. We use the GDI+ functionality to paint our texts and the way the text is rendered cannot be changed. I also checked how the mentioned competitor works in this case and it seems that they behave the same way.

    If you have additional questions, feel free to contact us.
