    Hello All,

    I am trying to design a windows forms application using Shaped form and Rad Title bar.

    I have created a background image and applied to Shaped form. And now i want the Rad title bar to be transparent so as to show my shaped form background image. Somehow, the backcolor = "transparent" is not working. And while making the "Enable Theming" Property to false, i get a semi-Transparent blended image.

    How to get this done (i.e) title bar completely transparent?

    Any help is appreciated!

    Regards,
    Uday

    Hello Brad,

    Here you are:

    It is possible to achieve your scenario. Just set the BackColor of the RootElement to Transparent and the hide the fill and borders. Here is a code snippet:
    this.radTitleBar1.RootElement.BackColor = Color.Transparent;
    this.radTitleBar1.TitleBarElement.FillPrimitive.Visibility = Telerik.WinControls.ElementVisibility.Collapsed;
    radTitleBar1.TitleBarElement.Children[1].Visibility = Telerik.WinControls.ElementVisibility.Collapsed;

    I hope this helps.
