    Hello Prafull,

    Thank you for writing.

    I want to be sure that I understand your question correctly, so could you please confirm that you want to use our WinForms controls in a WPF application?

    All the best,

    Hi Prafull,

    It is always better to use a set of controls in context of the platform they are dedicated for. Although there are means for using WinForms controls in a WPF application and for using WPF controls in a WinForms application, since the controls are not natively dedicated to the respective platform, some unexpected issues may occur. So me recommendation is to use our WinForms suite in a Windows Forms application. As to the question which platform to choose at all - WPF or WinForms, this is not a single answer question. There is an interesting dicussion about this here. In addition to this, if you want your application to work on a broader range of Operating Systems, a Windows Forms application is the better option for you.

    I hope this helps.

    As you suggest I am using win form for developing my app using telerik controls.
    In that application I had use ribbon bar on the top of the form as like a outlook.
    but i want to use menu as like outlook in my  same windows form to the left hand side.

    Hello Prafull,

    Our WinForms suite offers RadPageView which supports Outlook style. Form more information, please refer to this article. Please note, however, that RadPageView can't be collapsed to the left edge like this is done in Outlook. Our WPF suite supports collapsing and in my previous reply I have given a link to an article which describes how you can use WPF controls in a WinForms application. However, as I also mentioned, we do not recommend this approach, because of the complexity and the issues that may appear because of the integration of components in a platform that is not native for them. So, I would suggest using RadPageView instead of the WPF OutlookBar.

    I hope this helps.
