The Telerik Presentation Framework (TPF) is the underlying architecture of all controls in the Telerik UI for WinForms suite, and provides a completely customizable architecture for the controls in the suite by following WPF best practices. Supports animations, transparency, rotation and scaling
With Telerik UI for WinForms by Progress you can achieve the latest user interfaces because any numeric property value can be animated, giving you the ultimate user experience.
One of the primary architectural philosophies used in building WPF was a preference for properties over methods or events. The same idea was used when crafting the Telerik Presentation Framework - properties are declarative and allow you to more easily specify intent instead of action. The result is a system which defines a tree of visual objects (primitives), which make up a component, and is extremely lightweight and flexible.
The Framework and its tools supply attractive and functional defaults for the Telerik RadControls, while simultaneously allowing developers to exercise very fine-grained control over every aspect of their appearance and behavior. The TPF defines a wide variety of useful abstractions and services that provide the rich functionality Telerik RadControls offer.
Telerik UI for WinForms by Progress offers HTML-like text formatting capabilities on a framework level. All Telerik WinForms controls that contain a TextPrimitive or LightVisualElement are capable of displaying rich text formatting by using standard HTML tags, such as <i>, <b>, and <u>. The implementation is very simple and intuitive especially if you are familiar with HTML.
The uniform nature of the control architecture makes it possible to nest controls within each other for more flexible and modern user interfaces. This unique feature of the Telerik Presentation Framework allows you to provide the solution you have been searching for, without writing code or worrying about things going badly.
