    Hi there.  I am having a problem when I maximize my form.  The title bar appears to be rendered twice.  The top part of the screen has a partially rendered title bar.  Immediately below that, the correct form shows.

    Also, I am noticing a lot of flickering when I resize the form. 

    I am in the process of rewriting some of my forms with Rad and if it goes well I am going to move my entire project to Rad.  I am hoping that these rather obvious problems are something simple that I have just overlooked.

    I have a screen shot of the title bar problem if you want it by e-mail.

    Hi steve,

    Please open a support ticket and there you can attach any screenshots. This will help us a lot. Can you please also specify if you are using RadForm or ShapedForm with RadTitleBar? Thank you.

    All the best,

    Steve, was there a resolution to this issue?  I'm noticing the same thing with my forms that inherit from RadForm.  I also noticed there's a lot of lag when resizing the form by dragging the lower right corner, it seems like there may be a lot logic (or not optimized logic) firing on every resize.

    In truth, I don't think I submitted a trouble ticket and I haven't seen a response here, so I would assume that the issue hasn't been addressed. 

    At the time when I posted this, we were testing a number of control suites.  In the end, we decided to move our project to WPF to get a unified system for controlling the look and feel of our application.  So I haven't pursued this much.  If we had stayed with WinForms, I would have probably used Telerik because they seem to have the most complete and well documented suite.

    I would be happy to share my review process with you, if you are interested.  You can contact me directly at stevem@rftroubleshooter.com.

    Hello Josh Randal,

    The lag in RadForm is most probably caused by problems in painting. We are working on various  improvements in RadForm, including this, as we speak. Some of the improvements will be available in SP1 release, expected in mid April.
    In the meanwhile you can try working around this issues by using ShapedForm and RadTitleBar.
    Let me know if you need more info about this.

    All the best,
