The Material theme is coming to Progress Telerik UI for WinForms in the R2 2017 update. Give your application a modern look and feel with built-in animations and shadows.

In the upcoming Progress Telerik UI for WinForms release, we will introduce a new modern theme—the Material theme. This theme enables you to extrapolate the ideas of touch-based mobile and web application design into WinForms desktop applications. 

The theme is designed to support touch devices, so the controls in it are larger than the ones in our regular themes. It will provide your application with a modern look and feel as well, which is something we always strive to give our customers. With this theme, we are also introducing three new features: built-in animations, shadows and an option to use custom fonts without installing them on clients’ machines.

These features can be enabled for other themes as well. The new theme comes with the TelerikWebUI font, which has more than 400 font glyphs ready to be used out-of-the-box.

The below images show the new features along with some of our controls with the Material theme.
