Flexible Architecture for Endless Customizations

By following WPF best practices, the Telerik Presentation Framework (TPF) provides a completely customizable architecture for all WinForms controls. The uniform nature of the Telerik UI architecture makes it possible to nest control elements within controls for more flexible and modern-looking user interfaces. This unique feature allows you to achieve previously impossible visual effects without having to write any code or learn a new technology. UI for WinForms just looks better, and the controls work on Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8 as well as Windows 10.

  • More than 10 years ago we built an ERP for direct selling companies. The first major update of the software was when we started using Visual Studio and MS SQL, but the real breakthrough was when we started using the Telerik controls. This proved as a great move forward in terms of:  faster development, reliability, better UX with stunning UI. Our customers are really happy with the UI and the frequent enhancements in our software. Many of them are directly related with the new features introduced in the Telerik tools we use.
