    Hi,

    I changed the form property FormBorderStyle = None.  That hides the border but the user can't resize the window other than go to  full screen.  I also blanked out the forms text property and set the controlbox property to false.  In the controls RadRibbon demo the form title bar is hidden but the form can still be resized by the user.  How was that done???  I saw mention of RadForm and RadFormShaped on old forum threads but I assume they have been depreciated.  I am using Telerik Q3 2012 assembly V4.0.30319.

    Thanks
    Rich

    Hi Richard,

    Thank you for writing.

    The demo mentioned uses RadRibbonForm, which has its own title bar and the form can be resized. To create such a form, simply right click your project > Add > Windows Form... > and choose Telerik RadRibbonForm. 

    Alternatively, use the approach described here: http://www.telerik.com/help/winforms/forms-and-dialogs-ribbonform-getting-started.html.

    I hope that you find this information useful.

    All the best,
    Anton

    Hi Anton,

    I Inherited from RadRibbonForm and the sizing works.  However the Title Bar does not reflect the theme.  Its always stays a blue gray color.  I hope there is a way for me to change this.

    Thanks

    Hello Richard,

    The Aero effect is enabled by default when using RadRibbonForm. This allows the form to display transparent titlebar with the same style as in Windows Vista and higher versions of the Windows operating system. You can disable this behavior and synchronize the titlebar with the ribbon theme by setting the AllowAero property of RadRibbonForm to false.

    I hope this helps. If you need further assistance, do not hesitate to contact us.

    Kind regards,
    Jack
