    How do I get the caption at the top of the RadRibbonBar control to take over the entire form? I dont want to have to captions but the only way to get the Ribbon Bar to be that way is to set the Form's FormBorderStyle property to None. I need my form to be sizble though. How can I achive this?

    I figured out how to solve this. Set the form's base class to RadRibbonForm instead of Form. This should be easier to find in the "Getting Started" documentation. I found it on a Telerik Blog.

    Hi Armysniper,

    Thanks for contacting us and for the provided feedback. Indeed, in order to achieve the desired effect with RadRibbonBar you have to use the RadRibbonForm control.

    How to create a RadRibbonForm is described both in Getting Started section of RadRibbonBar help and in Forms and Dialogs section.

    However, we are open to any suggestions that might help us improve our help. Therefore, I appreciate any feedback regarding the structure and contents of WinForms Online Help.

    Thanks for your time.

    All the best,
    Deyan
