    Hello Vineet Belani,

    Thank you for writing.

    You can enable the aero effects of RadForm by disabling our theming mechanism:
    this.AllowTheming = false;


    I hope that you find this information helpful. Should you have any other questions, do not hesitate to contact us.

    Setting AllowTheming to false seems to work, but it also seems to override some of the base Form functionality; specifically, the FormBorderStyle property does not work properly anymore. Setting it to FixedSingle still allows the form to be resized. In fact with all FormBorderStyle settings except "None" the form acts as if it is set to FormBorderStyle.Sizeable.

    A workaround is to set the MinimumSize and MaximumSize properties but that is somewhat inadequate as it still shows the resize cursors on the form's edges.

    Hello Josh,

    In our latest release, the issue with RadRibbonForm and the FormBorderStyle property was resolved: http://feedback.telerik.com/Project/154/Feedback/Details/112294. You should upgrade to the latest version in order to take advantage of the fix.

    I hope this helps.

    Hi Stefan,
    I am using the latest release. The issue is with the standard RadForm, not RadRibbonForm. As I noted the problem only occurs when AllowTheming is set to false (in order to enable Aero mode).

    Hi Josh,

    Thank you for the clarification.

    I can confirm the described issue and I have logged it in our feedback portal. Here is a link to it: http://feedback.telerik.com/Project/154/Feedback/Details/132594.

    I have updated your Telerik points for this report.

    Meanwhile, you can either use RadRibbonForm or set the form's minimum and maximum size.

    Thank you once again for this report. Should you have any other questions or suggestions, do not hesitate to contact us.

    Regards,
