    Тhe FREE Telerik RadFormDecorator is a unique control that provides great skinning capabilities for standard Microsoft form controls like buttons, checkboxes, text areas, fieldsets, scrollbars, etc.

    • Style all page UI elements from a central location.
    • Page layout is preserved.
    • Choose from 14 ready skins or make your own.

    The FREE distribution of RadFormDecorator also includes a TRIAL version of all other controls from the RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX Suite. 

    The product is provided to you and the community complimentary and is available through electronic download. This complimentary community edition does not come with dedicated support, however, you may access the supplemental support resources (documentation, forums).

    Is it possible to get the RadFormDecorator individually?   Meaning, I have an older full version of the telerik.web.ui.dll and am not ready to upgrade the full suite as of now but would like to utilize the free offering of the formdecorator portion.

    Hi Jay,

    Currently, the free distribution of RadFormDecorator can not be used with a previous version of RadControls. All RadControls are in the same assembly (and namespace) and are built on top of the same framework.  This however means that you can use them only together from the same assembly and you can not have two versions of Telerik.Web.UI.dll using some controls from one of them and the others from another one. The only recommendation for now is to use the latest version of the assembly with all new additions in all controls. Please let us know if you need any assistance in upgrading -- we will be happy to help.

    Best wishes,

    I find 13M assembly just too big to ship with a product just to use the FormDecorator which is a fraction of the UI framework. I understand Telerik wants people to try the rest of the UI but couldn't it publish a small assembly for the formdecorator only?

    Hi,

    Currently, it is not possible to extract RadFormDecorator from the UI framework. We might consider producing this in the future. For now, only the full assembly is available.

    What happens with RadFormDecorator after the trial version has expired ? I can see that at least script manager is required to use RadFormDecorator and other controls are now embedded in my MSVS. Will I be able to continue using RadFormDecorator after the trial period for the rest of controls has expired or framework will not support it then ?

    Hi Bolt,

    Telerik provides RadFormDecorator as a free product, so that you will be able to use it for free after the expiration of your trial version of RadControls. Regarding the script manager, note that RadControls can work with RadScriptManager as well as with ASP ScriptManager.
