    I just started my first WinForms app using Telerik controls today, so maybe I'm overlooking something, but my RadForm's title bar will not display.  Here's what happens:

    1. I compile and run my app (just one form).
    2. It looks fine, but then I click on another app that brings it in front of mine.
    3. Then I click my app's taskbar button to bring it back... no title bar.

    Actually, the title bar is there as in it accepts mouse clicks and I can drag the window, but it doesn't draw itself or the controls on it.  It essentially takes a screen shot of what's behind it, then THAT becomes the image of the title bar.  That might be some partial text of a web page that was behind it.

    This happens w/ VS2K8 on Windows Vista Ultimate x64 and Windows XP Pro x64.  The latest service packs for everything is installed and I downloaded and installed Telerik Q1 2009 today.

    Hello Michael,

    Please excuse us for the delayed response. We had an issue with our site, related to the "RadForms for WinForms" section, which did not alerts us when new tickets have arrived. The issue is now addressed and I am ready to answer your question.

    I saw that you have already reviewed the forum topic for the same issue. Unfortunately, I still cannot add more to this case. We are still experiencing some issues with RadForm and I only can suggest you to try replace it with ShapedForm + TitleBar.

    Once again, please, excuse us for the caused inconvenience.

     
    Kind regards,

    Hello,

    Whilst I can't find this bug in the PITS system, I can confirm that I am unable to replicate the issue using the latest Q3 2010 SP 1 release.
    Hope that helps

    Hi Leon,

    Please download and give a try of the latest release Q3 2010 SP1. It addressed a lot of issue and introduces many improvements. Like Richard pointed out, the described issue in this thread cannot be replicated.
     
    Please let me know if you still experience any issues with the latest version.

    Kind regards,

    Hello Martin,
    Thank you for following up. We are using other controls that aren't included in the upgrade, and it is late in the development cycle to make significant changes.  We will look at upgrading in our next release. For now we just switched to a shape form and a title bar control, I saw that recommendation on a different post.

    Hi Leon,

    Using ShapedForm with RadTitleBar is a valid work-around for your situation. Do not hesitate to contact us again if you have any other questions.
