The control is shipped with a rich set of themes that allow you to easily build slick interfaces with the look-and-feel of Windows Vista, Office 2007, Office 2010, Outlook, etc. The themes can be easily switched using a single property.
In addition to the built-in themes, all RadControls for WinForms come with a feature we call Theme Color Blending, which allows for tweaking the color scheme of a theme, without the need to redo the theme from scratch. The updated color scheme is applied to all Telerik WinForms controls that you are using in your application for a fresh new look. Or you can build a new theme from scratch to fit your exact visual demands by using the Visual Style Builder productivity tool.
Telerik RibbonBar is also capable of displaying rich text formatting by using standard HTML tags, such as <i>, <b>, and <u>. This is supported on a framework level.
Unlike some ribbon implementations, Telerik Windows Forms RibbonBar was built with ease-of-design in mind. You can build an entire ribbon by manipulating the tabs, chunks, and controls directly on the VS design surface, without writing any code. Some of the other capabilities are:

Telerik RibbonBar's Start Button provides convenient access to "application menu" that displays actions performed on the entire document, form, or application, such as Save and Print. It also provides a list of recent documents, access to form options, and the ability to exit the form or application.
The Start Button is based on RadApplicationMenu, which is Telerik counterpart of the "application menu" introduced with Office 2007 as part of Microsoft’s Ribbon UI. Since it is a available as a stand-alone product, it comes with intuitive design-time support, many extendability features, and theme support. RadApplicationMenu is fully compliant with the 2007 Microsoft® Office Fluent™ User Interface Design Guidelines.
