    I have an application that used another vendors ribbon control. We were very unhappy with it, so just replaced it with your RibbonBar control. We understood that to get the benefits from the ribbon control, that we should use the RadRibbonForm. Since we already had all of the code written for this form, we just changed the inherits statement from Forms.Form to RadRibbonForm.

    Now when we run the application, we cannot use the title bar. We cannot move the window. We cannot min/max the window. And we cannot access the close or control icons.

    Is there another step we need to do to get the RadRibbonForm title bar to work correctly?

    Thanks!

    I figured this one out myself as well. This was because the rest of the form was in a panel marked at Dock Fill. In that case, the RibbonBar control needs to be *after* the main form panel (as shown in the Document Outline Window) to ensure it is correctly docked Top.

    Hope this helps someone else that runs into this problem.
