Powerful Set of Business Critical UI Components
The Telerik Windows Forms component suite is designed to meet the ultimate demands of large-scale businesses for superfast, reliable and feature-rich desktop and touch applications. Leveraging the years-long expertise in interface development, Telerik delivers a comprehensive set of desktop components and tools to help you, the developer, focus on the core logic of your projects, and build upscale enterprise projects, with exceptional performance, modern UI and unbeatable end-user capabilities.
Touch Enabled Windows Forms. Metro UI Look and Feel.
RadControls for Windows Forms is the first suite on the market to provide full multi-touch support and API. The multi-touch API allows you to handle the touch gestures that occur on the screen and take action depending on what you need the Telerik WinForms controls to do. We also provide a set of ready to use multi-touch enabled controls (Grid, TreeView, Panorama, etc.) and Metro UI themes to start creating touch applications right away. And it works on Windows 7!
Performance You Demand. UI You Can't Believe.
Despite having animations and rich visual effects, RadControls for Windows Forms features excellently performing components aimed at helping developers improve their productivity and deliver better and faster applications in shorter periods of time, effectively increasing the ROI. The suite has been crafted for high performance by minimizing the amount of repainting and layout rearrangements needed. All data controls, such as GridView, TreeView and ListView feature a powerful data engine, which guarantees blazing fast data loading and updates.
Immersive Animations in Classic Windows Forms
Inspired by WPF, Telerik Windows Forms Controls support incredible visual effects like transparency, rotation, animation, and transition. Telerik Windows Forms controls enable developers to transform data into interactive, richly animated and modern layouts that empower end-users to analyze complex business scenarios. This showcases the magnitude of what can be achieved with GDI+ and Windows Forms.
All Telerik Windows Forms controls come with full theme support – you can use any of the included themes (Metro, Windows 7, Office 2007/2010), or build new ones with the intuitive and unique Visual Style Builder tool. These themes help you deliver a consistent, next-generation look-and-feel throughout your line of business applications.
Unique Architecture, Inspired by WPF. Works on XP, Win7, Win8!
By following WPF best practices, the Telerik Presentation Framework (TPF) provides a completely customizable architecture for all RadControls. The uniform nature of the RadControls architecture makes it possible to nest controls within one another for more flexible and modern-looking user interfaces. The Telerik Presentation Framework supplies attractive defaults for the controls, while allowing developers to exercise fine-grained, CSS-like control over every aspect of their appearance and behavior. This unique feature of Telerik Controls for Windows Forms allows you to achieve previously impossible visual effects without having to write any code or learn a new technology. The RadControls just look better and they also work on Windows XP!
Ideal Choice for Enterprise Line of Business Applications
Telerik Windows Forms Controls is a powerful set of controls for business applications that works beautifully in the most demanding scenarios. In addition, Telerik’s suite is one of the very few to offer enterprise-level CAB support. The Telerik CAB Enabling Kit for WinForms provides easy integration with CAB and its underlying infrastructure. It assists developers in using best patterns and practices and is therefore well-suited for enterprise applications.
Visual Studio Extensions for RadControls for WinForms
The Visual Studio integration package helps you become more productive when managing a Windows Forms project in Visual Studio. The Extensions automatically create, upgrade and configure your RadControls projects in seconds, eliminating the need to manually set any assembly references. The WinForms Project configuration wizards automatically handle the dependencies between the assemblies, ensuring you will never run into a version conflict, and allow you to always utilize the latest version of RadControls in your application with only a few mouse clicks.
Powerful Productivity Tools
Five productivity tools are included in the RadControls for WinForms Suite: a Visual Style Builder allows you to codelessly customize the appearance of all WinForms Controls. A Control Spy helps you examine and change properties at run time. A Shape Editor can be used to define free-form UI elements for advanced interfaces. A Project Update Utility assists you in upgrading your current RadControls-based applications to newly released versions. An Element Hierarchy Editor allows you to work with complex control types, navigate the class and element hierarchy, and set properties directly in Visual Studio design time. In addition, the data-intensive controls such as RadGridView and RadTreeView come with design-time property builders, which allow you to connect to data and customize the look and feel of the controls through a simplified and intuitive UI.
RTL Language Support
Due to business globalization, multi-lingual and culturally-aware applications are a must. Telerik WinForms Controls can be used in all languages supported by the .NET framework, including Right-to-Left ones such as Arabic and Hebrew.
