    Hi,

    I just updated to the Q3 2013 release of RadControls for Winforms and for some reason my App's Icon is no long displaying in the Taskbar. The icon still appears in the top left corner or the RadForm but it no longer appears in the Taskbar. Is there some new property that needs to be set in the Q3 2014 release that I am missing?

    Thanks!

    I was able to reproduce the issue by:

    1) creating a new basic WinForms application
    2) adding a RadForm to it
    3) updating the Program.cs to start RadForm1 instead of Form1
    4) run the program and notice the RadForm's titlebar icon is different than then taskbar icon
    5) stop the program
    6) update the RadForm1 icon to be some custom .ico file
    7) run the program again and notice that the titlebar icon is updated but the taskbar icon is still incorrect

    Hello,

    Thank you for contacting Telerik Support.

    I confirm that it is a known issue with our RadForm's icon in the taskbar with the Q3 2013 SP1 version. Currently, I am unable to provide a link of the item to track its progress, subscribe for status changes and add your vote/comment to it, because we are migrating our Public Issue Tracking System to a Feedback Portal. We will let you know the link as soon as possible. Thank you for your understanding.

    Due to the nature of the issue, there is no suitable workaround that I can suggest. We will do our best to introduce a fix in the upcoming release.

    I hope this information helps. Should you have further questions, I would be glad to help.

    Regards,
    Stefan

    Hi,

    Thank you for confirming that. In fact it is resolved in Q1 2014, so it should be good since then.
