    I'm back :)

    I'm spending most of the next day or two working with more of the base UI controls so I will probably be making a few posts during that time - hope you don't mind :)

    With the RadPanel you have it by default displaying a border but you have no Border Setting to turn it off. Not in all cases is a developer going to want to havea border displayed around the panel

    Thank you for the feedback, Steven. You are correct - a developer may not want to have a border displayed around the panel. This is why we offer several ways to change the look & feel of RadControls:
    1. You can use Visual Style Builder to create a new theme
    2. You can change some elements' properties with the Element hierarchy editor
    3. You can do it with code
    I would suggest using the Element hierarchy editor:

    1. Open the smart tag for the RadPanel placed on your form
    2. Choose "Edit UI elements" option
    3. Navigate to BorderPrimitive in the control's element structure
    4. Choose the Visibility property and set it to Collapsed


    Sincerely yours,

    you see I knew that there had to be a setting for this somewhere :)

    however that is one of the "problems" with the controls - some of the simplest things are buried deep within the option tree - not saying this is a bad thing but it does make it a little difficult to suss out the simple stuff :)
