Telerik blogs

Hey everyone. The other day, I was responding to requests for more information on how to use the new RadForm, and I felt like we’re not being proactive enough in showcasing what our product has to offer. I’d love our customers to use our product to their maximum advantage, and I realize we have an important role to play to facilitate that. In this respect, I’d like to say a few words about one of our newest additions to the control suite – RadForm.

RadForm is an alternative to the standard Windows form. It offers you all the standard form functionality and has right-to –left language support. Furthermore, it supports MDI scenarios, with both other RadForms or windows forms nested within. It features а toolbar that can be shared among all the child forms in the parent form.

A pretty compelling feature is its theming capability, which allows you to achieve a consistent appearance throughout the entire application. It gives the developer a straight-forward way to customizing the form, and significantly improves the user experience.

A few of points to make about the new component: 

  • The RadForm is not meant to supersede the ShapedForm. 
  • It only provides a rounded-corner shape, which cannot be changed. 
  • It cannot take any non-standard shape, the way the ShapedForm can.

Please find more information about the RadForm here:
