    Hi,
    I'm trying to go through the tutorial and work through the basics of telerik winForms. Its asks me to choose radForm from tools box, but all the controls of rad are available except the radForm. I'm using Visual Studio 2010 express edition and i've added the components manually.
    It would be great if some one helps me here!

    Thank You.

    Hi Vishal, 

    Thank you for writing.

    You can not find the RadForm in Visual Studio`s toolbox. You can add the RadForm by two ways:

    1. You can add the RadForm like new item. 
    a. Click on the project
    b. Right click and choose Add => New Item 
    c. Choose Telerik RadForm, set name and click OK
    d. In file 'Program.cs' change 
    //from
    Application.Run(new Form1());
    //to
    Application.Run(new RadForm1());

    2. You can add the RadForm when change base class of default WindowsForm 
    public partial class Form1 : Telerik.WinControls.UI.RadForm
        {
            public Form1()
            {
                InitializeComponent();
            }
        }

    In our article Adding RadForm to your Project  you can find more detailed information how to do it step by step. 

    Should you have further questions, I would be glad to help.
