Learn all about the new ButtonTextBox and FontDropDownList controls that shipped with the R1 2019 release of Telerik UI for WinForms.
With the latest release of the Telerik and Kendo UI product lines, we've included a variety of new controls and features across all toolkits, where in the case of Telerik UI for WinForms, we were happy to announce official support for .NET Core 3.0 and a bunch of new controls - FontDropDownList, ButtonTextBox, TabbedForm and TimeSpanPicker. In the next few paragraphs we are going to cover the first two in more detail.
The new RadButtonTextBox control allows you to easily add buttons or other elements inside a regular textbox. Elements can be added in front or after the text. Another common case is creating a password textbox where the user can show the typed password and then hide it. This is easily achievable by just adding a toggle button and setting its image dynamically:
Another case where this control can be used is as buttons container and no text. This is controlled by the ShowTextBox property. Here is an example that shows how this can be used.
Detailed information about this control is available here: RadButtonTextBox.
The RadFontDropDownList controls shows the fonts available on the system in a popup and allows the user to preview and select them. It aims to save time whenever you need to allow the end users to select a font in an application. It is already embedded in the RichTextEditorRibbonBar.
Detailed information about this control is available here: RadFontDropDownList.
