    Hello everyone. I'm just starting my first Telerik Windows Application. I needed a bit of advice regarding UI controls. My form will be re-sizable. I need to control the UI control placements using some layout engines. Kindly guide me if telerik has some layout provided or thngs to keep in mind microsoft's own layout controls. Thank you.

    Hello,

    Can you explain a little bit more about your requirement. Telerik controls, like all of course can be docked, and anchored but I'm not sure if this is what you mean. If you can let me know more details, I will do my best to help
    Thanks

    Thanks for the super-fast reply. Okay, what I want is a solid layout base to begin dropping controls on. I will be building a two-tabbed single window win-app. Both tabs will have a scheduler on it. What I have in mind comes from a previous experience on DevExpress: http://devexpress.com/Products/NET/Controls/WinForms/Layout/

    For instance, the main demo application that host all the Win Form demos for Telerik not only looks good but behaves correctly if it is resized. Everything retains its proportions correctly. The Silverlight or WPF have very flexible UI and a grid layout can serve as a base then all the designer/developer does is specify percentages and weights. I need something similar in WinApp. Thing is, a panel docked at Top and another one docked at Bottom just will not suffice here.

    Thanks.

    Hi,

    there are many ways to acheive a really good layout with the telerik Controls. The RadSplitPanel has an excellent layout engine. Take a look at this blog post for exmaple

    I'm not sure if I have answered your questions enough, so if you want to know something about a specific control, just let me know and if I can help, I will.

    All the best
    Richard

    Here are also some links in the documentation for you to
    RadScheduler Documentation for the scheduler
    RadPageView in stripMode for the tabs

    hope that also helps
